Tertulia on Supply Chain Challenges and Opportunities 2021

In this episode we are going to be taking a deeper dive into the world of the supply chain, with a group of international experts, all colleagues of mine from the Supply Chain Special Interest Group at the Society for the Advancement of Consulting (SAC).We are already hearing a lot about supply chains in 2021 in Europe because of the effects of Brexit and the many supply issues and import and export challenges arising between UK and EU with the end of the transition period. Supply chains are also in the news globally at this time with the keen focus on the roll-out of the various COVID vaccines all across the world. Another crucial element of global supply chains over the last 20 years or so has been the growing role of China and its transformation into the factory of the world and a lynchpin of many global supply chains - remember the PPE scramble in spring 2020? Our tertulia participants today from come from North America, Australia, and Europe, three regions with extensive economic and supply chain links to China that are undergoing change for multiple economic, political, and geopolitical reasons right now. To discuss these issues I am delighted to be joined by:Rebecca Morgan, President of Fulcrum Consulting Works, Cleveland. Ohio in the US. David Ogilvie, CEO of David Ogilvie Consulting based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Evan Bulmer, of Evan Bulmer & Associates located in Grange, near Adelaide in South Australia.
