February 20, 2017 · News

As we already announced, Mars is going to be present at the UTPC 2017 and will give a speech.


Are you wondering what their speech is going to be about? Here’s the answer!


The title of their speech is “How Mars builds capabilities to manage risk” and will be given by Christina Taylor.

“Risk Management is becoming a topic of ever increasing importance for Purchasing organizations as our supply chains become more global, our consumers become more connected and informed, and markets become more volatile. At Mars, having the right people with the right skill sets is one of our biggest assets in managing these risks and turning risks into opportunities. During this speech we’ll share with you what kinds of risks Mars focuses on most, how we organize around these and how we build the capabilities our associates need.”
