Were you at this year’s Houston Strategy Forum Supply Chain Symposium? Karen Tkaczyk, our executive who handles energy accounts, attended on behalf of MasterWord. It was held at The Petroleum Club in Houston, Texas, on January 31, 2023. Top supply chain executives and their providers attended, enjoying this year’s discussions on the theme of “Reinventing Supply Chain.”
A fireside chat model
The premise of this series of events organized by the Petroleum Club is that attendees learn and participate in the discussion, and that those present build long-term, meaningful relationships. The specific premise of the event was, “As market dynamics become increasingly volatile, supply chains must adopt highly agile strategies to address the complexity, uncertainty and risk.”
The fireside chat and panel discussions included audience participation all day long, and led to one insightful response after another. Four hours of powerful discussions with participation from all parts of the supply chain: from energy giants to logistics companies, from engineering companies and to consultants and the energetic host, Ravi Kathuria of Cohegic.
Hot discussion topics at this year’s event included how to find the balance between reliability and agility, to prepare for black swan events and to deal with inflation. Karen’s key takeaway was that she’ll be thinking about how to keep the focus on MasterWord’s strategic growth goals amid responses to disruption and the day-to-day, so that those goals always shape her response, for all the companies that we help to operate globally in whatever language that may be.
