This post is a reminder to my readers that Alexander Hamilton Financial Technologies has asked me to conduct a two day training workshop on the critical topic of Global Supply Chain Risk Management. This workshop will be conducted on two different dates, January 26-27, 2009 in Saddle Brook New Jersey, and February 18-19 in Schaumberg Illinois. I designed this workshop to appeal to a broader audience, especially functional managers who may reside in Finance, Product Management, Marketing, or others who are concerned about their company’s exposure to supply chain risk management.  There will also be appropriate content for supply chain professionals including Procurement, Planning, and Operations professionals.  You can view all of the course details and registration information at the following link.

Once again I realize that in these very challenging times, attendance at workshops may be very difficult to justify, but this is such an important topic that we decided to move forward in scheduling.  A supply chain disruption has the potential to have severe consequences to the bottom line, or even the brand.  We purposely selected cities with high concentration of interested companies and where attendees can more cost efficiently travel to the workshop by automobile.  If there is added interest, we can also extend the scheduling to other dates in 2009. Please join me on either of these dates for a lively and valuable session that will benefit you and your company.
