Presented by

Mikkel Hippe Brun, Tradeshift and Mads Stolberg-Larsen, Tradeshift

About this talk

The COVID-19, or coronavirus, outbreak is causing significant disruption to global supply chains. When it is brought under control we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief, but the impact this crisis has had, have and might have ahead is putting a finger on increased need for insight, transparency and agility. During this session Mikkel Hippe Brun, Co-Founder and Senior Vice President of Greater China at Tradeshift will share his experiences in helping businesses across the globe collaborate and interact digitally. [Before Mikkel shares his experiences Mads Stolberg-Larsen, Head of Fintech and blockchain in Tradeshift Frontiers and long-time student of Nassim Taleb’s* writings, will introduce the concept of Anti-fragility.] In our globalized world, the supply chain becomes a company’s biggest risk – but also one of it’s biggest assets – during times of disruption. There is a lot of talk about robust supply chains. Anti-fragile supply chains aren’t just strong, they’re malleable to ensure they continue working no matter the disruption. But, most crucially, they don’t just survive the disruption—they improve because of it. In this on-demand webinar, you will hear from our speakers about: - What are the signs of a robust versus fragile supply chain? - How can you evaluate how to strengthen your supply chain weak spots? - How can businesses better prepare for periods of supply chain disruption? - How can a digital foundation help the supply chain become anti-fragile? - Is it time to rethink the structure of global supply chains? * Nassim Taleb coined the term “Anti-fragile”
