Like most industries, transportation and logistics is confronting immense change – and like all change it brings risk and opportunity. The Canadian Transportation Act review in 2014 identified that Canadian industries and transportation have a less than 41% usage of advanced communication technologies – but with shippers and carriers beginning to understand the value of new technology, it is changing from “nice to have” to necessity. Adoption rates will soon reach critical mass and individuals without the relevant skills may find themselves obsolete.
The Canadian Supply Chain Research Foundation (formerly the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council) has recently released its report Digital Supply Chain: Creating Skills for the Future, based on projected changes in the sector over the next 3-5 years stemming from increased use of: autonomous vehicles, robotics and automation, big data analytics, drones, mobility internet/the internet of things, and blockchain.
Pat Campbell, VP, Strategic Initiatives, of SCMA, and Pina Melchionna, President & CEO of CITT will kick off the session with a discussion of the report, followed by a candid conversation with two professionals who hold both the CCLP and SCMP professional designations.
The discussion will include:
How today’s leaders are planning to succeed in a rapidly evolving industry
The role of leadership and soft skills in an era of technical expertise
What the skills of the ideal employee of the near future looks like
How to prioritize your skill development for your career goals
How to make your company’s digital transformation successful
About the facilitators:
Pat Campbell, VP, Strategic Initiatives - SCMA
Pat’s career experiences are a reflection of her passions for stakeholder engagement and partnership building. From the foundation she established in earning an M.A. in Global Development Studies from Queen’s University—for which her thesis looked at the economic, social and cultural impacts of free trade on the lives of women and children in a manufacturing area in Northern Mexico—Pat has worked with various provincial, federal and aboriginal government agencies on public/private project initiatives and in a number of labour and non-profit environments.
One of her most gratifying experiences was with the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General & Native Affairs, serving as Stakeholder Liaison on the team that negotiated the first successful land claim settlement in the province. Through subsequent roles, Pat continued to develop her skills in stakeholder engagement. Her expertise in bringing together people with diverse perspectives to tackle challenges has led to the creation of sound, strategic solutions for numerous clients, partners and stakeholders.
Giving to her community—through volunteer work with Muskoka Women's Advisory Group, South Muskoka Memorial Hospital, the Royal Canadian Legion and Midwives of Muskoka—Pat demonstrates the same values of building trust and enhancing capacity that are reflected in her work life.
