A Case of Corporate Transformation through the Power of Supply Chains

Management Appreciation Night

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Boi Na Braza Brazilian Steakhouse

Grapevine, Texas

   Join us for our annual Management Appreciation Night, enjoy a great meal, and hear an excellent presentation by Dr. Jonathan Wilson!


   The speaker at the dinner will be Dr. Jonathan Wilson. Dr. Wilson has a PhD in Strategic Management, a Masters in Global Logistics Supply Chain Management, a Masters in Business Administration and is a professionally qualified Management Accountant. In addition to Dr. Wilson’s academic credentials, Dr. Wilson has substantial experience in the implementation of world class supply chains. He has led manufacturing and supply chain projects in Europe, Asia and Africa.

   Dr. Wilson takes an analytical approach to understanding the root causes of underperforming sales, costs and assets before designing strategically targeted manufacturing and supply chain solutions.  This approach has produced substantial  market and cost benefits and has been demonstrated to work effectively in a variety of industries.

   Using this strategic approach to supply chain and operations management, Dr. Wilson’s after dinner talk will analyze the global supply chain challenges of a leading Japanese electronics manufacturer, how these were analyzed, strategic solutions developed, and  then operationally implemented. This is a corporate turn- around success story, the key lessons of which Dr. Wilson is keen to share with you.

   The lessons and perspectives revealed in this talk would be of interest to Board level executives, and managers in,

  • Finance
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Information Technology
  • Operations
  • Engineering
  • Warehousing
  • Purchasing
  • Transportation

There will be a Q&A session after the talk.
