Keynotes

David Cameron

Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, 2010 – 2016

DAVID CAMERON is former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, who resigned from the position in 2016 in the wake of the Brexit decision. Cameron will speak to ISM2017 conference attendees about his experience navigating geopolitical and public policy issues, many of which impact the global supply chain. He will also address a range of events in Europe and worldwide, and what they could mean to you.

General Colin L. Powell, USA (RET)

Like supply managers everywhere, General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.) is no stranger to delivering short term supply solutions - and leadership - during a time of crisis. As former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Powell assembled a multibillion dollar supply chain involving 42 nations during Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf. In only a few months, Powell and his team pulled together millions of coordinated supplies: military goods, machinery, food, weaponry, and critical spare parts. General Powell will inspire and motivate ISM2017 attendees with stories of leadership under fire - and how to deliver complex supply systems when facing immovable deadlines.
