Houston Strategy Forum

Seventh Annual
Strategic Supply-Chain Symposium


Tuesday, December 15, 2020 ● 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM ● VIRTUAL ZOOM MEETING

Conference Description

No Hollywood script writer could have envisioned 2020: The pandemic, the OPEC price-war, oil at negative $37. The year 2020 followed a series of down years for the Oil & Gas sector. How should the sector and the supply chain functions reinvent?

1. What are the supply chain strategies for 2021? What are the priorities?
2. How are supply chain organizations redesigning themselves?
3. How are they fulfilling talent needs? How is racial diversity and supplier diversity playing a role in the strategy?
4. Which technologies will help reinvent supply chain capabilities?
5. Has the five-year downturn and the pandemic made supply chain less or more strategic in the corporation? What will be the drivers of its value proposition going forward?
6. What role do environmental impact issues play in supply chain strategy and execution?

Our Unique Format

What Makes Us Different?

The Houston Strategy Forum is a highly interactive discussion forum, not a presentation forum. No speeches, no PowerPoint presentations. 

Our business talk show format facilitates an energetic, meaningful, and respectful exchange between our speakers and attendees. Our unscripted format often creates "insightful learning opportunities." We receive rave reviews about our format from speakers and attendees. 

To encourage an open and candid discussion we follow Chatham House rules.

To register the substitute, use the registration category, "Substituting for a Visitor." On the next page of registration, indicate the name of the person whom you are substituting.

FOR GENERAL MEMBERS: If you let us know at least one week prior, we will credit your HSF account for the fees, so you can apply the fees toward a future event.
