Board Chairman
Global Clinical Supplies Group


4:00 PM Planning For The Future Of Clinical Trial Supply – Politics, Leadership, New Markets and Budget Cuts

In this interactive afternoon seminar attendees will discuss the changing landscape of clinical trial supply and the external influences set to impact our supply chain over the next 12-24 months. With a focus on the impact of Brexit and other political factors, the increasing industry pressure on lean supply chain management, budget cuts, smaller headcount expected to do more with less, as well as the increasingly digital nature of our supply chain management – participants will be tested to identify their biggest challenge of the next 12 months and the questions they need to answer over the next two days to put in place a sustainable roadmap to success to manage the change with their people and stakeholders.

In this session you will understand:

  • How the global political climate has altered our clinical trial supply strategy, the challenges that this has presented and the importance of agility, listening, teamwork and innovation
  • How to plan for the increasingly digitalised nature (AI and Blockchain) of our supply chains – and how to internally manage the changes that this supply chain transformation requires and the stress it creates
  • Where our standard protocols need to be adjusted, our stakeholders influenced, and our sponsor-vendor relationships improved to prepare for the supply landscape of the future
