“For business leaders this year, the use of exponential technologies and AI will be pivotal as themes like trust, the future of work, society and the health of our planet become critical in the context of sustainability and climate action. As we innovate, business leaders have to ensure that our technological advancements do not come at an environmental cost, and ethical considerations, such as privacy and bias, are carefully managed. AI is already being leveraged to model climate scenarios, predict environmental impacts, and optimize resource usage in unprecedented ways. By unlocking the use of big data and AI for all in a responsible way, technology’s potential as a catalyst and an enabler means it can support more informed decisions and accelerate targeted and scalable climate actions across supply chains.”

Collaboration With

The Supply Chain Queen For Impact

Philip Vervloesem

Senior Vice President at OMP USA
In our collaboration with Sheri, we loved the approach as a motivational speaker to our strategic seminar. The interaction, the vibe brought in the session was very well received. The most important to me is the alignment in values, understanding the DNA of a company and touching on the right topics to be able to spark discussion and engagement , this is one of Sheri’s most valued qualities.

Sheri is such a great supply chain resource to work with. I recently partnered with her on a competitive analysis for IBM Sterling. Sheri was always more than prepared, able to field questions and make intelligent recommendations, plus share her expertise in a unique way. We will continue to work with Sheri on various projects as we evolve throughout 2020. I highly recommend leveraging Sheri for your supply chain consultations.

I work with a lot of B2B influencers and Sheri is one who stands out in a number of ways. She is an expert in her field and has built an audience carefully and deliberately. Next, she understands how to position herself and connect with other influencers in her field to maximize her message and that of her industry. I often use Sheri as an example to other up-and-coming B2B influencers and as someone whom to model themselves after. I’m proud to know her.

Sheri is THE Supply Chain Queen! She is a recognized subject matter expert and influencer in supply chain, leadership, and strategy. She understands the importance of working across the functional silos in a company, and she understands how to communicate across the generations in our workforce.

Alissa Chiang

Sustainability Manager at Crocs Inc

I met Sheri through the Digital Supply Chain Institute’s 21:21 mentorship program for women in supply chain, where she was my mentor for almost 4 months. In our first meeting, I immediately knew she understood me, Sustainability, and our challenges. During the program,

she made herself available and gave me career advice as a woman leader in my field that uplifted me. Her vision and passion for Sustainability resonated so much with me that I followed her into IBM. At IBM, I got to see how Sheri is a fearless leader who inspires those around her to do better for the people and the planet. Her strong background in and understanding of supply chain allows her to envision and create solutions that don’t ignore the intricacies, cross-functional nature, and costs of operationalizing and implementing Sustainability/ESG. I know that Sheri will most certainly continue leading with authenticity, and revolutionizing the way we tackle Sustainability/ESG for the better. Any organization is lucky to have her as a leader, and any direct report is lucky to have her as an advocate and mentor.

Sheri just gets “it”. By “it” I mean the way innovation is driving the global supply chain forward. Her ability to synthesize technical and macro information in a way that makes it easy for listeners to grasp is a key reason she is a much sought after speaker

and consultant. She always has a gravitating personality. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Sheri several times already at SAP and I know if there is another chance to work with her again I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out. Not only does Sheri understand emerging technologies, she fundamentally grasps how sustainability and diversity can revolutionize a more digitized supply chain, not just for businesses but for everyone. I highlight recommend Sheri for your next project – she is the type of rare go-getter that simply gets the results your business needs.
