2021 Retreat Series

The Australian Supply Chain Executive Retreats will return in early 2021. The Series starts in April, with dates shown below.

We still have plans to conduct another round of the overseas Program, but it will have to wait a little longer. We are currently looking at Asia events potentially in mid-late 2021; with the European, US and South Africa events late 2021/early 2022

For all those  colleagues who have already confirmed that they will be joining us at the various locations, we will be keeping the momentum going and staying  in touch with online catch-ups so that we can share our experiences as we all face new challenges along the way. This will take the form of a series of Think Tanks on specific topics, delivered  via Zoom on a complimentary basis.

During this time, we are also working on content that will help us all to interpret and learn from the current extreme  situation, and to strengthen the immunity of our operations against future shocks, which will surely come-we just don’t know exactly when!.

Our 2020/21 cohort are welcome to contact us at any stage, via email or LinkedIn, and we very much look forward to eventually being able to get-together in the same room.

If you are interested in receiving an invitation to any of the above events, please contact  Dr John Gattorna or Ms Deborah Ellis.

The Schedule is now as shown below.
