About the Event

This advanced seminar will provide insight and techniques for supply chain leaders. Take this opportunity to hear from a successful supply chain leader regarding one of the most important aspects of the job, and often one of most assumed and overlooked: the people stuff. Longtime C-suite leader Karen Alber will share methodologies and approaches that will make leadership, integrity and people skills a key part of your professional journey -- skills that aren’t taught in college or most corporate training or leadership development programs. Karen will share the "secret sauce" that enables you to master the people stuff and become a memorable leader with a thriving career.

Attend the Advanced Management Skills seminar and learn how to:

  • Gain a rare perspective on people skills you can apply immediately from a former CIO and executive for respected corporations
  • Identify tools that guide you in determining and defining what you want to be known for and how to leverage those skills
  • Manage today's cross-functional, global supply chain teams effectively
  • Demonstrate why the people stuff can be more important than the technical stuff
  • Refine skills that will make a difference at work and in your personal life
