Message from Gary Master, President and CEO of AGiLE Business Media & Events

Gary Master In a day of division, constant changes, and difficulties around the world, AGiLE Business Media & Events exists to make a real difference. Our mission is to “make the world a better place, one supply chain at a time,” and we mean it. There is no better place to look to make lasting and game-changing differences in our lives than in the supply chain, and we want to be in the middle of it all.

What do we mean by changing the world? As we see it, that might include:

1. Building a coalition of associations, practitioners, suppliers, and other resources that can offer a basic understanding of more complex solutions to the labor shortage and, specifically, the frontline worker shortage. This includes education and automation solutions to eliminate unnecessary tasks, worker- retention initiatives, and introducing new technologies to the industry both through startups and new initiatives.

2. Providing a place of nurture and encouragement for startups that can fill voids in the supply chain and help solve issues that lead to disruption. We want to help promote, introduce, and assist startups and recognize that they help our industry remain vibrant and responsive to ever-changing demands placed on the supply chain. Startups push the industry forward and also challenge established suppliers to do even better in the products and services they provide.

3. Providing thought-leading and educational resources that offer supply chain leaders the latest metrics, best practices, case studies, and more. By keeping the industry up to speed with fresh thought leadership, we can help you make the right decisions when it comes to your business.

4. Understanding and using AI so we can better guide our partners and friends on where and how to utilize it best in operations.

5. Leading the way in sustainability by working with associations, practitioners, and other leaders to help pave the path toward a healthier and more sustainable world for future generations. How? By bringing these groups together, we can have solid discussions and develop programs and initiatives to minimize our impact on the planet.

If your organization is looking to make a real difference, let’s talk and see how partnering together can bring about real change in the world!
