Tim Kersten thinks about nonprofits navigating the supply chain crisis

As we move into a “post-pandemic” era, the nonprofit industry is facing yet another challenge: A global supply chain crisis.

And it’s not just nonprofits; supply chain issues can be felt everywhere, from large corporations down to the aisles of our grocery stores.

To help navigate this challenging time, we’re dedicating Season 7 of our Groupthinkers podcast to the supply chain. Throughout these next few episodes, we’ll sit down with industry leaders, production experts and economists to better understand how the supply chain crisis is impacting nonprofits and the strategies they can use to work through it.

In the first episode of our supply chain season, we sit down with RKD Group CEO Tim Kersten to discuss how nonprofits should respond to the supply chain’s impact on direct mail. Tune in as Tim shares:

  • A brief overview of the supply chain crisis
  • Why now isn’t the time to panic
  • How nonprofits should respond
