SLA Europe Event on Supplier Risk Management – 17 September 2015

SLA Europe would like to invite to their next event, on managing suppliers and contracts, on Thursday 17th September.

A good market intelligence strategy is becoming increasingly important as managing supplier risk gets even more complex. Processes around due diligence, supplier on-boarding and monitoring are under focus as companies are under pressure to maintain a buoyant supply chain whilst facing more scrutiny, and transparency, around who their suppliers are.

Understanding supplier stability is the key to a flexible and robust supply chain. But what about the financial health of the supplier’s corporate group, and specifically its owners? What if the supplier’s beneficial owners are individuals? Then there are further checks that should be done before contracts can be agreed.

Monitoring and analysing suppliers is the focus of the next SLA Europe event on September 17th; hosted by Morgan Stanley at their European Headquarters at 20 Bank Street, Canary Wharf. Come to hear the EMEA/Asia Head of Morgan Stanley’s Supplier Risk Management group offer practical insights into their supplier risk management programme.

This will be complemented by Ted Datta from Bureau van Dijk who will discuss the benefits and pitfalls of combining commercially available risk information with an organisation’s own, often extensive, knowledge of suppliers.
