Our US colleagues are presenting what looks like a very interesting webinar tomorrow, Tuesday 11th October at 4pm UK time (5pm western Europe). It is titled “Improving Your Supplier Compliance Odds – When The Cards Are Stacked Against You” (although we think it is about quite a lot more than just compliance”).

If you tune in, you will get the insight and wisdom of Pierre Mitchell, from Spend Matters US, and Pierre-Francois Thaler, from EcoVadis, who provide CSR (corporate social responsibility) ratings and scorecards. Then from the practitioner side, there is David Burrows from Subway, a firm that has focused successfully on CSR issues in recent years.

They’re going to be talking about how you can look at supplier responsibility in a manner that reduces risk, does “the right thing” from that wider social perspective – AND provides better value to the buyer. If you can really achieve all three of those goals, then that is a big success story for anyone. So our colleagues tell us that they will be covering these topics:

  • How can I leverage supplier CSR performance to turbocharge sourcing, supplier management, product innovation, and supply chain design efforts – rather than slowing them down?
  • How do I get both suppliers and diverse internal stakeholders not just aware, but motivated for the needed change?
  • How do I develop a business case that aligns to economic value added models that the C-level care about?
  • What other brand leaders have gone before me to show how to "connect the dots" between compliance, risk, and reward?

They will “share some robust frameworks, guerrilla tactics, and proven case study results to help you build a business case for sustainable change in your inbound supply chain”.

You can register here, free of charge, and it is worth registering even if you can’t make the live time as you will get a link to listen to the session later. You can also ask David how Subway make those meatballs taste so delicious …
