    Join CSCMP’s San Francisco Roundtable for our season Kick-Off event!  This is the 7th annual “Supply Chain Predictions Panel" event moderated by the dynamic Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group.

    Supply chain leaders from iconic Silicon Valley and SF Bay Area innovators Flex Connect and Grocery Outlet will forecast what’s to come in the ever changing world of Supply Chain and defend their predictions from counterpoint arguments from each other and the audience. Audience members and panelists agree or disagree with the prediction by either raising the famous Red and Green Ping Pong Paddles and Red and Green Cards. We predict you will not be disappointed in this truly exhilarating evening amongst colleagues while Carl engages audience interaction with some fun giveaways..       

    Event Chair, Harry Cameau, is planning a captivating and what promises to be an entertaining event while learning within the SF Bay Area’s growing supply chain community.   We will gather for this epic event at the $2.8 million renovated Capital Club in San Jose with its spectacular 360-views.
