Political Risk and the Global Supply Chain

Friday, June 11th @ 12pm PT

Does your business face political risks? If you worry about supply chain stability as the result of a war, pandemic, tariffs, local zoning, corruption, or political turmoil, the answer is yes. Your company operates in a number of political and economic environments that all hold unique challenges and threats to your profitability and viability as a business. This week, Dr. Ian Oxnevad will discuss the importance of sound political risk analysis and its use in foreseeing threats to your operations. You will learn what connotes a political risk, and some of the techniques used to detect and mitigate it.

About the Speaker

As an academic, Dr. Oxnevad has extensively published research on these issues, as well as on the Middle East and other regions of the world. He is the coauthor of Middle East Politics for the New Millennium: A Constructivist Approach (Lexington Books, 2016), and the author of the forthcoming book Making a Killing: States, Banks, and Terrorism from McGill-Queens University Press that is due out later this year.

Reshoring & the Resurgence of Manufacturing

Friday, May 14th @ 12pm PT

As part of our Emerging with Supply Chain Strength webinar series, Michele Nash-Hoff will talk about the resurgence of manufacturing. She is an expert in the rise of American manufacturing and how to look at the true total cost of ownership of products instead of purchase cost alone. During COVID, manufacturers rose to the occasion to ramp up quickly, and the many risks of offshoring and the extended supply chain were exposed. She has written the book, “Rebuild Manufacturing: The Key to American Prosperity” and will share insights and examples of companies that have re-shored as well as what she sees for the future of manufacturing.

About the Speaker
Michele is founder and president of ElectroFab Sales, a sales agency specializing in helping manufacturers select the right processes for their products since 1985. Michele is currently a director on the board of the American Jobs Alliance and the board of the San Diego Inventors Forum.

Resiliency has emerged as a cornerstone to emerging successfully from the pandemic and essential to post-COVID success.

New Webinar: The Economy, the IE & the State of Manufacturing & Supply Chain

Emerging with Supply Chain Strength Webinar

The Economy, Inland Southern CA &
the State of Logistics & Manufacturing

Friday, Feb 19th @ 12 Noon PST

We are excited to kick off a webinar series “Emerging with Supply Chain Strength” to discuss the economy, the Inland Southern CA and the state of manufacturing and supply chain.

COVID has created vast disruption and opportunity throughout the region. Although manufacturing and supply chain were considered essential and fared better than many industries, there were many impacts with customers, suppliers, new rules and regulations with how to manage the workforce and many more changing conditions to address. E-commerce went through the roof, significantly impacting the IE and supply chain, both positively and negatively.

The Inland Empire Economic Partnership supports efforts in job creation, leadership infrastructure, and regional advocacy for Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. The IEEP works closely with business and government leaders to make the Inland Empire a great place to live, work and invest. From a supply chain perspective, the IEEP has been involved in a significant study by Brookings that relates to the future of manufacturing and supply chain in the IE, and how the technology transformation will affect our industries and the labor force. The IEEP also partners closely with the Southern CA logistics scene (ports, railroads, transportation, etc.).

Tune in to hear the economists talk about what’s coming, the impact on the IE, what’s happening in the region and the future of manufacturing and logistics.
