Marsh Webcast April 13 — After the Earthquake: Supply Chain Resiliency in a Global Economy
Supply chain disruptions continue in the wake of the devastating March 11 earthquake, tsunami, and ensuing nuclear crisis in Japan. Despite the economic consequences from a string of recent catastrophic events, many organizations' plans to manage through resulting supply chain disruptions remain inadequate.
On Wednesday, April 13, at 11 a.m. ET, Marsh will hold a one-hour webcast examining supply chain risk and potential solutions—including risk transfer—in light of events in Japan and elsewhere. Panel members will also provide an update on the global property insurance market response and discuss insurance solutions—including catastrophe modeling—related to supply chain issues.
"The Japan earthquake and its aftermath serve as a reminder of the interconnectedness of today's global economy and of the need to ensure the resiliency of supply chains," said Gary Lynch, global leader, Marsh Risk Consulting's Supply Chain Risk Management Practice. "Whether it's earthquakes, hurricanes, political unrest, volcanic eruptions, financial crises, or cyber attacks, organizations need to be prepared to operate in what many economists describe as our new 'disruptive economy.'"
In addition to Mr. Lynch, Duncan Ellis, leader, Marsh's U.S. Property Practice, also will participate on the panel. Brian Elowe, a managing director in Marsh's Global Risk Management Division, will moderate the panel discussion.
