  • How have you, your operations and the manufacturing and supply chain industry as a whole been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • Which short-term, emergency measures did you and the industry at large have to put in place in order to keep your production and operations going?
  • How can manufacturing and supply chain leaders motivate and engage their employees in a time of change (and with obstacles such as working virtually, less face-to-face contact etc. to contend with)?
  • What lessons have you, and the industry as a whole, learnt in this tumultuous time?
  • What should manufacturing leaders be doing in the medium to long-term in order to optimise productivity in a COVID and post-COVID industry?
