    What the H*** Is Going on With the Global Supply Chain? 

    Will it Ever Go Back to "Normal?"

    From the factory and the shipper to the ports and the consumer, the day-to-day realities of the global supply chain are unlike anything most of us understand.

    Hong Kong-based international sourcing expert Steve Feniger, 30-year Tier 1 automotive veteran Dennis Hawver and the #1 investment banker for supply chain logistics, Ben Gordon, will analyze what (and who) caused the current issues and discuss the potential future state of the international economy.

    This lively virtual discussion, which will be moderated by Martin Stein, Founder and Managing Director of Blackford Capital, will illuminate strategies for lower middle market companies to survive and thrive in the current environment.

    Key program takeaways:

    • The causes of the ongoing supply chain issues and what the long-term impact and repercussions of the crisis may be.
    • Actions you should be taking if your company is currently sourcing in Asia.
    • Who is benefitting from the current situation?  And what are they doing to keep things from returning to “normal?”
    • The roles that sourcing, logistics and technology will play in solving the supply chain crisis.

    Our moderator:

    Martin Stein, Founder & Managing Director, Blackford Capital

    Our speakers:

    Steve Feniger, Operating Partner, Blackford Capital

    Benjamin Gordon, Managing Partner, Cambridge Capital

    Dennis Hawver, Director of Engineering, EBW Electronics


    This is a free bonus webinar program and available only by virtual attendance.  A link to attend will be shared with you after registration. This program is available at no charge to members and non-members.  Any guest that would like to participate may register to attend.
