For years, global supply chains expanded and became increasingly complex in a quest to make shipping goods and services around the globe cheaper and faster. COVID-19 threw these finely tuned systems into a tail-spin, making it difficult to find everything from toilet paper to pickup trucks. This disruption was not the first, nor will it be the last – but it has led to new ways of thinking that may lead to significant changes in the coming decades. There will be great change, but also great opportunity for innovation and connection. Zachary Rogers will share what’s next and how it will impact your life, availability of everyday goods, personal data and the world economy. Grab and go appetizers following event. This is part of the Arntzen Grand Challenges Lecture Series.
