      A LEARNING JOURNEY TO GREATER CONSUMER SATISFACTION A brief introduction to the work of the International Commerce Institute by Robert Wilkinson, Vice President Strategic Industry Development, The Coca-Cola Company, will be followed by two examples of leading-edge thinking and collaborative practices driving greater consumer satisfaction. Jon Fleetwood, Global Account Director, Coca-Cola, and Anna Grabowska, Commercial Director, Tesco Poland, will give an account of how collaboration is meeting consumer needs better; Angélique Wouters, Chief Digital Officer, Selexyz, will explain how book retailing is meeting changing needs. THE CONSUMER AND SHOPPER JOURNEY Andrew Morgan, President Europe, Diageo, and Nikos Veropoulos, CEO, Veropoulos Group, will explain how and why a shared approach by suppliers and retailers creates a better understanding of the journey to purchase and consumption – bringing shopper satisfaction and company growth. MAKING SUPPLY CHAIN COLLABORATION THE POINT OF DIFFERENCE With energy and other input costs rising by a third in the last five years, grocery margins are being squeezed and businesses are focusing even more on bottom-line efficiency. On-shelf availability is the first moment of truth. Inventory levels play a critical role in either driving up service or increasing cost. Gavin Chappell, Supply Director, Asda, Chris Tyas, Head of Supply Chain, Nestlé Europe, and Matt Wood, Head of Non Food Supply, Asda, will describe two high-profile ECR projects exploring these dynamics and offer a navigation framework. THE 3-D EFFECT OF BUSINESS INFORMATION – THE NEW AGE OF INFORMATION SHARING AND USAGE An introductory film will present the 3-D effect of business information throughout the supply chain, from the manufacturer to the final shopper in retail stores. Following this, Ghislain Esquerre, Supply Chain Competence Center Director, Carrefour, Jochen Rackebrandt, Director Customer Supply Chain Development Europe, Kraft Foods, and Jörg Pretzel, CEO, GS1 Germany, will describe how European initiatives are being consolidated and retailers and suppliers are being brought together to turn business information into better trade item and POS data exchanges.

            With so many Americans now unemployed and the economy still struggling to get into a high gear, the country badly needs small businesses to work their magic. Small businesses created roughly two thirds of all new jobs in the United States over the past 15 years, but they are also the nation's turnaround specialists: Small firms almost single handedly sparked the economic recovery during the nation's two previous recessions. But this time, small firms have been struggling, too. This conference focused on what the private and public sectors can do to help more of the nation's small businesses expand and create job-and serve as a catalyst for economic growth. The panel featured some of the nation's leading thinkers about strategies for small business growth. Panel 1: A National Conversation About Sparking Small Business Growth Bruce Katz, Vice President and Founding Director, Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program Mary Kay Leonard, President and CEO, Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) Stanley S.

                Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This panel discussed the importance of essential health medicines including those for hemorrhage and hypertensive disorders (especially oxytocin, misoprostol, and magnesium sulphate), iron deficiencies, and newborn health (amoxicillin for pneumonia and chlorhexidine for umbilical cord care). Malik spoke on The Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services Program with Management Sciences for Health and USAID on the estimated needs of essential maternal health medicines for specific countries (in regard to estimated need and actual use). Wendt discussed the iron deficiencies in Bihar, India and the investigation as to why these deficiencies are so high when an anemia program is already in place in the area. Factors inhibiting the distribution included: lack of awareness of existing protocols as well as role confusion, and lack of coordination and training among frontline workers. Metzler presented the functionality of a supply chain of some very basic drugs such as chlorhexidine and how they can be sourced, manufactured, produced, distributed and potentially imported. Metzler shared the idea of a checklist to provide as an assessment tool to countries to provide high-quality drugs at low cost. Briggs reported on the research done in Kenya and Rwanda on the availability and management of maternal health medicines and supplies. The team found that standard operating procedures, while being put in place, were not necessarily followed to the specified guidelines nor were recorded properly. In addition, refrigerators for those drugs needing to be kept within the cold chain were often not working properly, which was a complex issue for certain drugs.

                      Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session focused on the intersection of family planning and maternal health. The session started with Yadav's presentation on how maternal health utilization impacts family planning utilization in India by way of using propensity score matching. Weinberger presented how Marie Stopes International used the Impact-2 model to show how individual NGOs can address their impact in reducing maternal mortality. Tariq's discussion focused on the impact of contraceptive availability on maternal and child health indicators. Not only did the contraceptive availability change the health outcomes for the better, but also showed the needs for improvement in regards to supply chain management.
