POSTPONED – The Coronavirus Effect and supply chain risk for Australian manufacturers

March 24, 2020 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

The Coronavirus Effect and supply chain risk for Australian manufacturers

What does the Coronavirus mean for Australian manufacturers and their supply chains as airlines cancel flights and automakers close factories, and businesses in China themselves consider how to cope without the country’s vast factories?

Join us and Alf Esteban of StratEdge Consulting to:

      1. Discuss future perspectives on this important industry issue.
      2. Hear about how high performing manufacturers build resilience into their supply chains to prevent or recover quickly from dynamic risk related disruption.
      3. Learn about balancing risks and costs with targeted approaches to risk rather than attempting to predict and prepare for every risk type.
      4. And finally… enjoy the friendly debate between Alf Esteban and Cumberland Business Chamber President, Angela Haynes about whether the Coronavirus is a black swan event!

We look forward to welcoming members and guests to this exciting and informative event!
