Supply Chain – A Risky Business?

by | Nov 2, 2017

The Supply Chain Academy and Thomson Reuters have recently agreed a joint collaboration to offer a series of round table discussions, that educate supply chain and procurement professionals on managing supply chain risk.

Thomson Reuters, ‘The Answer Company’ offer third party risk solutions to help supply chain professionals detect, assess and minimise potential risks associated with suppliers, distributors and partners, and regularly monitor them for any change in status.

Following the Supply Chain Academy’s delivery of supply chain training to Thomson Reuters in London, New York and Singapore (Read the case study here), we are again collaborating to support Thomson Reuter’s efforts to provide business intelligence that educates the supply chain professional with minimising their risk.

Our first exclusive roundtable is on the 12th December the Thomson Reuters UK headquarters in Canary Wharf will bring together experts to examine the drivers of complexity in the modern supply chain and the proliferation of risks that come with them.

Topics include:

  • Price Risk: How to manage cost fluctuations of raw materials to prevent profit erosion
  • Supply Risk: How to uncover disruptions in supply webs with precise analysis of market events
  • Supplier Risk: How to achieve transparency with suppliers by implementing due diligence policies

Seize the opportunity to hear from Thomson Reuters industry specialists, share your experiences, voice your questions and concerns and network with industry peers.
