Noah, Director Corporate Training at Inchainge, has a passion for all things related to circularity. Originally from Luxembourg, he began his studies and professional career in the Netherlands where he lived for 6 years.

Noah is a master trainer for Inchainge's circular business game, The Blue Connection, and a contributor to the textbook Mastering the Circular Economy. He is dedicated to developing applied circular learning programs. And inspiring companies to adopt circular practices in the Netherlands and beyond. He currently resides in Barcelona, Spain.

Globalization, interdependency, and increasingly frequent unexpected events – COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine are only the most recent ones – are some of the key elements responsible for the rising uncertainty and disruptions in the supply chain.

Then, a crucial question arises: how can companies secure their business continuity and competitive positions? By building resilient supply chains!

Our keynote speaker will be Jeroen Scheepers, principal consultant at Involvation. He will share insights that will help your company – regardless of the industry – to increase its flexibility and switch to a more resilient mindset that will give you an advantage in tackling risks and quickly recovering from disruptions.

Also, discover how Inchainge has gamified Supply Chain Resilience thanks to an interactive session hosted by Hans KremerInchainge co-founder, and director. Hans will guide you through a challenging setup of our most established supply chain business game – The Fresh Connection.

The insights shared will also form the foundation of our resilient transformation program coming up in October 2022: Resilience Hands-On. Sign up with your colleagues, compete against other teams, and test how fast you can react to unexpected disruptions.

  • What are the most significant objectives and challenges when it comes to managers and their company’s transition to more resilient supply chains?
  • What are the Black Swans? And why do we always ignore the phenomenon of Black Swans until after they occur?
