Supply Chain Strategies
For Business Continuity
In The Pandemic Era

Participation in this webinar meets the recommended best practices for continuing directors education prescribed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).


Is the global COVID-19 pandemic the biggest black swan event in the history? The COVID-19 virus surprised the world government, global businesses, health sector, businesses, workforce, and many others. The restrictions in international airports, seaports, land transportation, manufacturing, trading, and distribution due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) and global lockdowns created supply chain disruptions worldwide. The pandemic continues to create spike in demand opportunities or produce more economic havoc which urges various industries in the business sector to manage the crisis and risks in its supply chains.


The Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) presents the webinar “Supply Chain Strategies for Business Continuity in the Pandemic Era” to discuss the following:


  • How is the COVID-19 Crisis affecting supply chains?

  • How are different industries affected worldwide and in the Philippines? Are there winners and losers?

  • What are the shifts happening with supply chains to adapt to the COVID-19 lockdowns? Examples.

  • How can the businesses rethink, transform, and manage its supply chains to keep it seamlessly moving in the new normal?

  • What should Boards do to lead their companies in the new normal?
