The major session on Tuesday, October 2, entitled How Natural Gas Can Positively Impact the Trucking Industry--And What this Means to Your Supply Chain, will focus on global energy, America's OPEC oil crisis, and the role that domestic natural gas can play in solving the economic and national security threats when used as fuel to replace oil and gasoline.
Erik Wahl, artist, author, entrepreneur, and founder of The Wahl Group, will close the conference on Wednesday, drawing on his artistic talent and business savvy to explore why acquiring a vision of what lies ahead is key to successfully navigating today's rapidly changing business environment.
In his creative and entertaining session, The Art of Vision, Wahl will demonstrate how utilizing unconventional wisdom will help executives build a strategic vision for their own organizations, and why a leader's role should be redefined to include artist as well as architect. A former corporate executive, Wahl has consulted top corporations such as FedEx, ExxonMobil, and Disney, and his artwork hangs in executive offices throughout the United States.
"One of our goals for CSCMP's annual conferences is to provide a wide range of learning experiences that are presented in various formats and learning styles," said Rick Blasgen, CSCMP president and chief executive officer. "General session presentations are developed to address topics that cover broad to specific professional interests as well as those that have personal and practical application.
"Tuesday's major session will provide an interactive forum to gain valuable information about the global hot topic of fuel alternatives and their impact on supply chains. And this year's closing presentation will give our attendees creative insight into achieving clear and strategic visions that can be applied to both their professional and personal lives."
CSCMP's Annual Global Conference is the largest of its kind for the supply chain management profession, according to Blasgen, and will put an intense focus on innovative solutions that attendees can take back to their companies and use. "We know that supply chain managers are facing a whole new set of challenges in today's marketplace, so we've designed and assembled solutions that can be used every day to improve their supply chains' performance," he added. The event will host more than 3,000 practitioners, educators, and thought leaders from around the world. Over 100 educational sessions are planned.
Attendees who register before June 30 will receive $300.00 US off the regular registration rates. More information is available at cscmpconference.org.
