A best practice session with AWESOME’s 2018 Host Partner, Founding Partner, and Champions will take place preceding the opening of the Symposium on May 9. The discussion will be facilitated by Kelsey Carvell, a senior project leader at Deloitte Consulting with a focus on growth, innovation, and operational excellence strategies in the digital age.
Participating in the session will be leaders from JDA Software, DSC Logistics, Johnson & Johnson, McDonald’s, and NIKE. This is the second year the Symposium has included this special feature with a Deloitte facilitator, where companies exchange insights and strategies about topics ranging from supply chain innovation to customer experience to advanced technologies to diversity and inclusion.
Kelsey has a background in both science and management, with an undergraduate degree in physics, a master’s degree in electrical engineering, and an Executive Certificate in Strategy and Innovation from MIT. For Deloitte, she works with clients to evaluate risks and opportunities specifically for Industry 4.0 Bold Plays, new business models, and breakthrough technology. Kelsey’s operational and supply chain experience includes leading procurement transformations, strategic network analyses, product lifecycle management, and connected factory work.
In addition to facilitating the 2017 best practice session, Deloitte hosted a networking reception in their Chicago corporate office at the conclusion of the Symposium. During the reception, Deloitte provided displays and demonstrations of the latest Digital Supply Networks.
