The Supply Chain Evolve Forum will explore the emerging future focused developments in human resources at a high strategic level, where we will bring together a group of over 150+ senior Supply Chain leaders from across the country, represented via a diverse range of industries.

Taking place on the 24th March, 2022 at the Sheraton Grand Sydney, Hyde Park. This years theme will be focused around “ The evolving future of HR”

Over the last couple of years, businesses have seen a major shift in the way they need to engage, communicate and mentor employees, while at the upcoming forum in 2022 we have constructed a program that covers off the 6 major areas of importance for the Supply Chain leader of today. These include Employee Experience, Talent Management, Diversity and Inclusion, Leadership, Future of Work and Mental Health & Wellbeing.

Attendees will have the opportunity to personalise their own agenda and maximise their time out of the office by selecting the sessions that are most relevant to them and their business.

Our networking drinks function will provide the chance to interact face to face with peers in a very relaxed setting, while the Supply Chain Marketplace will allow attendees to explore a range of products and services on offer across the industry that can assist their business in evolving.

Whilst we are all adjusting to the ‘new norm’ and adapting to the challenges and opportunities that COVID-19 brought for us all, we are committed to deliver a great event in a well-managed and safe environment.
