Understand the Risk Big Picture — A Webinar Looking at 2019 Risks

supply risk

Spend Matters UK/Europe’s final webinar of 2018 will be held Thursday with an eye toward 2019 risks. The event, “Understand the Risk Big Picture,” also is the final webinar for Peter Smith as the site’s managing director. Folks in North America can join at 8 a.m. Central, which is 2 p.m. in the UK.

It is being run with riskmethods — which provides a cloud-based supply chain risk management platform/solution, and riskmethods' Bill DeMartino, the general manager of North America, will be participating in the webinar with Smith. They’ll focus on different types of risk: cyber, reputational, political, natural and supplier financial risks.

Brexit also is on everyone’s mind, of course, but the long-term effects of the current tension between Ukraine and Russia, or the U.S.-China trade war could be even more serious. Indeed, the global economy is at a point where even the broad direction for next year is quite hard to predict. Bringing that down to the level that matters for buyers, will we see more corporate failures among our supply base in 2019, or fewer?

As usual, the talk will last for no more than 30 minutes with 15 minutes for questions and discussion.

Join them Thursday as they look at what procurement can do to improve risk planning and management. Please register here for the webinar — and even if you can’t make that time, registering will mean you get immediate access after the event to listen at your leisure.

Correction: This has been updated with the correct speaker from riskmethods.
