Lorcan Sheehan, CEO PerformanSC Supply Chain chairs 5th Annual, End to End Supply Chain Conference in Dublin on the 8th October 2015.
The topic this year is ‘Supply Chain 2020: Raising Our Game to Meet The Needs of Global Customers’. Ireland has always punched above its weight in supply chain and supply chains currently managed from Ireland span the globe in high tech, healthcare, food and drink, retail and other sectors. As these markets evolve, as technology changes and customer buying behaviours shift, so too will the demands placed on supply chain teams in the coming years.
Speaking about the conference, Lorcan Sheehan, Conference Chair and CEO at PerformanSC Supply Chain said “We are delighted to have such a strong line-up of speakers again this year. The conference has become a key event for supply chain leaders who increasingly see it as an opportunity for their teams to engage with and learn from peers.”
The programme is developed by a cross industry panel of supply chain leaders who face current challenges and who have a unique perspective on future supply chain requirements. Lorcan Sheehan added, “We worked to set an engaging framework that will combine best practices, insights into future challenges and what we expect to be some robust discussion between the speakers and those in attendance at the conference. It is a great opportunity to bring together the current and future leaders of supply chain in a discussion to help shape the future of the industry.”
