Thriving in the Digital age: The Need for a Copernican Business Revolution

In this visually rich presentation based on the content of his new book ‘Transition Point’, Sean A. Culey discusses how a new wave of disruptive technologies is fundamentally changing nearly every aspect of the end-to-end Supply Chain, including the relationship between customer and company. He will present a glimpse into the very near future where a ‘triple whammy’ of automation will result in a Value Chain that is fully automated, personalised and local.

Using videos and innovative presentation tools he will outline the nature of the changes, from demand capture to manufacture and fulfilment, and discuss ways companies can adapt to take advantage of the opportunities they provide.
