Workshop Overview

The goal of this workshop is to develop the abilities of SCMP candidates to become supply chain leaders and supply chain management professionals, i.e., to lead groups of people and to manage change.
This workshop focuses on the issues in leadership and professionalism, such as developing best practice leadership characteristics, becoming self-aware, creating a vision and a mission statement, and performing the steps toward effective leadership.
The Leadership and Professionalism workshop draws from the works of a variety of credible and well-respected "thought leaders" in the areas of leadership, management and human relations.
Tony Williams

Tony Williams is the Provincial Director of Supply Chain for Central Health. He is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the new supply chain shared services model in Newfoundland and Labrador. Tony started with Central Health in December 2017 and prior to that was in a supply chain leadership role with the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information (NLCHI) for over 10 years. Tony holds a Commerce degree, a MBA and also the supply chain management professional designation (SCMP).

He is a father of two children (17 and 21). Outside of work, Tony plays guitar. He doesn’t sing very well but given most of the songs he knows are based on his role model, Bob Dylan, that doesn’t matter.  In terms of sports, he loves baseball (Red Sox), football (Chiefs), hockey (Maple Leafs) and just recently took up running. He’s also played squash for many years.
