Clarks’ group director of sales and operational planning, Dave Powell, will debate demand volatility and demand driven operations in the retail sector, at the Supply Chain Standard 1-2-1 Summit 2013.
The panel will be chaired by Collectplus chief executive, Neil Ashworth, and will focus on the relationships between retailers and their logistics providers and suppliers as well as how flexibility and response times can be improved.
Powell will also discuss how changes in consumer demand have affected Clark’s logistics operations and response plans.
This panel has been organised in response to a recent Supply Chain Standard survey, which revealed that changes in consumer demand and macroeconomic uncertainty were by far and away the most significant areas of perceived risk for logistics and supply chain practitioners over the coming 12-18 months.
The summit will take place at the Hyatt regency hotel in Birmingham on the 18th June.
