MEMBER & INVITED GUESTS EXCLUSIVE
LUNCH KEYNOTE SPEAKER
The AGM will finish with a featured Lunch Keynote Speaker, Sohaib Shahid, PhD, Director of Economic Innovation at the Conference Board of Canada. Sohaib will offer members & their guests a competitive advantage by sharing his market intelligence on how the pandemic has exposed the vulnerabilities of relying too much on efficient rather than resilient supply chains. It has forced some businesses to expedite their plans to change their business models and move supply chains closer to home.
Both short-term (computer chip shortages, port congestions) and long-term (deglobalization pressures, US-China decoupling) forces are at play. Supply chain disruptions are, by nature, what economists call ‘stagflationary’. In other words, these disruptions weaken growth and increase inflation, making it difficult for businesses to position themselves.
The supply chain crisis is likely to worsen before it gets better. And even when it does, global supply chains will never be the same. Supply chains of the future will be shorter, more regionalized, and incorporate greater redundancies. This will especially be true for goods and services that have significant economic or national security consequences.
MEET THE SPEAKER:
Sohaib Shahid is the Director, Economic Innovation at The Conference Board of Canada. As part of CBoC’s Economic Forecasting Knowledge Area, Sohaib leads the Economic Innovation Team and their new economic product research and development initiatives.
Sohaib is an economic thought leader with experience in both the public and private sectors. Prior to joining the Board, he was a Senior Economist at TD Bank leading TD’s global economic forecast. He also worked as an Economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in Washington, DC. At both organizations, Sohaib worked on a wide variety of economic issues for a diverse set of countries.
When asked about what’s important to him in his role as Director of Economic Innovation, Sohaib didn’t hesitate:
“I’m very passionate about coaching my fellow colleagues and helping them enhance their skillset, so they can become Canada’s future leaders. By mentoring and training the next generation, we’ll continue to help solve some of the toughest problems Canadians face and make a difference in Canadians’ lives.”
Sohaib holds a MA and a PhD in Economics from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland.
