The BCI Southern Africa Chapter is delighted to invite you to their first post-COVID in person event!


Civil unrest, torrential rainfall, cyber-attacks…just another reminder that disasters don’t take a break, even for a pandemic! We called it a Black Swan event when the pandemic was declared. But we’ve experienced multiple Black Swan events since then…a bevy of Black Swans. Join us for our first in-person Ulwazi (knowledge sharing) since the pandemic where we will be discussing the related impacts and responses, supply chain resilience, ESG, the metaverse and cyber resilience amongst other exciting topics! The Ulwazi will be open to all members and non-members at no cost. We’re keeping it intimate with quality discussions and actionable outcomes.

The event starts at 08:00 am with a 30-minute registration process. The chapter Chair will then open the event at 08:30. We have 2 speakers between 09:30 and 10:00 with COVID -19 and Supply Chain Resilience in a international company as their topics. After a short tea break, we have the 3rd speaker from 10:15 until 10:45 introducing the topic of the following group discussion. We will then close the session around 11:30.
