“Learners and Leaders is designed to bring people together in the community to discuss important business topics, and the opportunities in the supply chain and logistics world are front of mind for many people. It’s important to discuss where we are today and to look beyond 2022 to strategize about how businesses can keep their momentum and succeed in this very unique environment,” said Tim Brown, Managing Director of the Georgia Tech Supply Chain and Logistics Institute. “This event is both in-person and virtual, so it is widely accessible to many people.
