Event Information

The event “RISK management and how to profit from everything that 2020 brought” will provide a look back at the, in many ways, extraordinary year that has just passed - from the perspective of risk management. The speakers will look into topics such as restrictions caused by the epidemic, limitations of transport and production, and reductions in production capacities within the supply chain due to quarantine measures and demand fluctuations.


Moderated by: Jan Hirsh, guests: Tomáš Veit, Søren Vammen
Start: 13:00, lenght: 60 min

1) Risk management and detecting opportunities

  • Could the situation somehow have been foreseen?
  • What have we learned in regard to risk management?

2) Challenges in procurement - How to be prepared for:

  • Supply chain outages
  • Capacity reduction
  • Extension of delivery times
  • Fluctuations in demand and requirements from customers

3) Replacement suppliers?

  • How to find, acquire and attract them for our business?
  • Has there been an emerging pressure for better localization? For local purchasing?
  • Is price still a factor, or are we now just looking for someone to at least deliver?
  • Is there now a new space for e-auctions or can electronization help otherwise?

4) Human Resources

  • Working with your team

5) Changing attitudes and approaches
