Supply Pressures: What Customers Expect Now and What Suppliers Need to Know

How has the normal course of business between customers and suppliers changed in light of recent market volatility (inflationary pressures, supply-chain disruptions, and geopolitical uncertainty)? 

Speaking at the DCAT Week Executive Insights program are (left to right): David Freidinger, Vice President, Business Management, Pharma Solutions, BASF Corporation; Wim Celen, Managing Director and Partner, Boston Consulting Group; Steve Kirk, Global Chief of Procurement, Catalent Pharma Solutions; Karin Shanahan, Executive Vice President, Global Product Development & Supply, Bristol-Myers Squibb 

During DCAT Week, senior executives from Bristol-Myers Squibb, Catalent, and BASF will share their perspectives on these recent changes. Executive Insights: Weathering the Storm – The Path Forward in Optimizing Supply Practices will address these all-important questions: 

  • What are the new best practices and approaches in contracting?  
  • How has supplier evaluation and selection been affected?   
  • What are the risk-mitigation strategies needed now and how can we anticipate the ones that will be necessary in the future?  

The program will be held at the InterContinental Barclay Hotel, Grand Ballroom on Tuesday, March 21, 2023: 10:30 – 11:45 AM; Doors open at 10:00 AM for coffee & networking.
