As one of America’s most beloved comedians, he will help us all relax, take a step back and remind us of the golden rule of business – do something you love and success will follow.”

The 2013 conference mission is to educate participants on how to benchmark their own supply chain goals, quantify gaps and help them build their own actionable 100-day plan to start closing those gaps to supply chain greatness. Programming promises to enlighten attendees on the many solutions tailored toward solving supply chain challenges including multi-channel distribution, SKU proliferation, labor utilization and space utilization.
