Another Professional Opportunity

In one sense, you can never devote too much time and attention to your professional development. On the other hand, since most of us have overcommitted schedules, it is important to prioritize and be selective with your professional development plans.

One very flexible opportunity that you should take advantage of is available “on demand” from this website. I’m referring of course to the Virtual Conference sponsored by Supply Chain Management Review and Logistics Management magazine. There is a lot of excellent content, and I encourage you to check it out:

Another offering worth your attention is the Professional Development Seminar Series offered by the Center for Value Chain Research (CVCR) at Lehigh University. These live, in-person seminars address topics that are relevant to today’s managers and executives.

The topic for the first seminar on September 16 is “Straight to the Bottom Line®: How Leading Companies When Through Supply Management.” A few of my colleagues and I will be leading this particular seminar at Lehigh University and we hope you’ll be able to join us. For more information go to:

From the September 2017 Logistics Management Magazine Issue
While Amazon’s recent bid to purchase Whole Foods made mainstream headlines, the e-commerce giant will still need to adhere to time-tested realities. Any way you slice it, the integrated U.S. cold chain requires optimized service from existing ports, 3PLs, cold storage warehousing, transportation providers and high-value vendors.
