About The Symposium

The Houston Strategy Forum is bringing together top supply chain and operations business leaders from Houston's largest companies to participate in a conversation and interactive discussion with an audience of supply chain professionals, managers, directors and VPs.

In the last five years, we have hosted the who's who of Supply Chain Executives.

We hope to generate a fabulous discussion this year as well. 

Symposium Format

Our summits are unique. They do not involve speeches or Powerpoint presentations. They are open and down-to-earth discussions between the panel speakers, with heavy participation from the audience. Our format is relaxed, akin to a coffee-table style chat. We receive rave reviews about our format both from speakers and attendees.

 

Discussion Approach

While we will stay within the thematic guidelines, our discussions are spontaneous and may flow in interesting directions. Our unscripted format often creates "insightful learning opportunities."

 

Symposium Agenda

Registration begins at 11:30 AM. The symposium begins with lunch (seating for lunch at 11:45 AM), followed by two consecutive 60 minute panel discussions. The symposium is followed by private and general receptions. 

Symposium Evolving List of Discussion Topics (Updated June 7)
Theme: "Progressing in Your Supply-Chain Career"

We are developing the discussion questions for this year’s symposium. We will add/revise the topics based on the feedback of our panel speakers and registrants.

First Session: "Growing Your Supply-Chain Career"
  • How should supply chain professionals safe guard their careers during volatile market conditions?

  • How should supply chain professionals in entry, mid, and senior level positions position themselves to grow their careers? What are the challenges and strategies at each level?
  • As companies experience volatile market conditions, how are the expectations and requirements changing for success in supply chain roles? Which skills and mindsets are becoming important?
  • How are companies retooling their culture to attract millennials and help them thrive, while at the same time ensuring their senior staff feels significant?
Second Session: "Cross-functional, Cross-industry Career Development"
  • How important is it for Supply Chain professionals to consider building a cross-functional career path?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities associated with a cross-functional career path? Which new skills are needed to build a cross-functional career? 
  • Are supply chain skills transferable between industries? Should supply chain professionals diversify between industries or specialize in one sector?
