In today’s episode of Women In Supply Chain, I’m joined by Lora Cecere. She’s had an impressively long-standing and diverse career, working in software, marketing and research for some big industry names from Proctor & Gamble to Kraft, before breaking away and starting her own firm, Supply Chain Insights, in 2012.

Through Supply Chain Insights, Lora works with supply chain leaders to take teams to higher levels of excellence. With research in her veins, Lora’s firm focuses on the changing face of enterprise technologies, paving new directions in building thought-leading supply chain research. And as if that didn’t keep her busy enough, Lora is also the author of popular blog ‘Supply Chain Shaman,’ a columnist for several industry publications and the author of two books (to date!)

Today Lora will be talking to us about her incredible career so far, her passion for research, the creativity and connection she finds through writing and the future of supply chain.

 

SHOW SPONSOR:

This Women in Supply Chain feature was made possible by our sponsor, Apex Logistics. Apex Logistics International Inc is deeply rooted in diversity and culture, led by our own “Woman in Supply Chain” CEO, Elsie Qian; these values are why we partnered with Let’s Talk Supply Chain for the Women in Supply Chain series. Apex is recognized as one of the fastest-growing Top 25 airfreight forwarders in the world, with a network of over 2500 global employees in more than 70 countries.
