Guest Speaker:
Gary Pezzutti is a leading Career Placement Professional with over 40 years' experience in the manufacturing sector. In 1980 he formed Summit Group Consultants specializing in "Contingency Search" and "Interim Professionals". He has developed an efficient method of teaching candidates seeking jobs in Supply Chain more effective "real life" presentation techniques. A recent commentary stated he is "at the cutting edge of what the SCM Industry needs and how to present yourself as a SCM professional to secure employment". He has been a member of APICS since 1981 and is a frequent speaker at Colleges, international conferences, and local chapter meetings.
 
Key Points: The mindset shift you need to network successfully - how to deepen relationships with people you meet - The Value of Continuing Education thru professional associations - how networking can lead to successful interviewing - how young professionals and mentors can create a value loop where both parties benefit from the relationship - how to get the job in the SCM Industry. 



  • About 10% of all new jobs in the USA for the next 10 years are expected to be created within the Supply Chain field.
  • The workforce of the future has changed and there is a lack of skills in the talent pipeline as well as an experience shortage. The question is how to bridge the gap and share learning.
  • Both Networking and Mentoring are two tools that can help to meet this challenge.
  • In addition professional societies must provide increased opportunities for growth outside of the classroom environment.
  • Each year for the last 16 years five of the premier SUPPLY CHAIN organizations have collaborated together to sponsor a joint dinner event known as the "Mega-Meeting".
  • To meet this new challenge we are sponsoring another event to promote networking among young professionals and more experienced colleagues to encourage learning on "both sides of the street" and to improve relationships.
  • In addition each of the 5 societies will have booths set-up with information on membership, seminars, professional certifications, and meetings.
  • One of the key lessons within the supply chain industry is that you learn to take care of one another. When this is done correctly customer service is enhanced and improved.
