Level of Complexity: Intermediate
8:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Distributors face a multitude of business challenges today. Sales of some products is skyrocketing while demand for other products is plummeting. Frequently vendors cannot ship needed inventory in a timely manner. Transportation issues are resulting in delays in receiving replenishment shipments. Often you need to decide how much to buy before a vendor price increase and evaluate alternate sources of supply. In addition to these replenishment issues, there are many challenges in maintaining a safe work environment while filling customer orders in a timely manner. In fact, composition of these orders may have significantly changed with the boom of e-commerce. In this session we will discuss what distributors can do to address these challenges, how to evaluate possible supply alternatives, and adjust replenishment policies and procedures during the gradual recovery from the pandemic. Most important of all we will discuss how to prepare for future, unknown, marketplace disruptions.

Harness the Power of Gratitude One of the downsides of life is that we rarely have to deal with an overabundance of gratitude. Most of us tend to focus on the negative. We don't receive nearly as much acknowledgment as we would like, and we don't give as much recognition as others deserve. Now for the upside! When we learn to harness the power of gratefulness, we can make a major positive difference in so many areas of our lives, as well as the lives of those around us-and The Upside of Down Times is your first step toward making that happen. "I highly recommend this book if you want to be happier, healthier and wealthier. I read this book in one sitting and began implementing some of the ideas the next day. The ideas are easy to implement but powerful in their results." -Jack Canfield, Co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and The Success Principles
