Tracy Cheetham

ParadoxSolve LLC
Founder & Director
United States
I am the Owner and Director of ParadoxSolve LLC, facilitator and educator of world class education and certification programs in logistics, operations and supply chain management. I am Past President of SAPICS - Your Supply Chain Network in South Africa. Other positions I held were Director International Development at APICS (USA), National Manager Primary Distribution for SABMiller and ABI (SA), Business Unit Manager of Cargo Carriers (SA), and Consulting Manager for an ERP business unit at Business Connexions (SA) implementing ERP Solutions, amongst others.
.As with many, this vocation, and Supply Chain found me, and the path I followed brought me here.
Participation as a volunteer for many years to contribute to the developing field of Supply Chain Management played a critical role in carving out this path, where women were then outnumbered ten to one. The professional certifications of the organisations I volunteered for - played another vital role. The demographics of the profession has changed significantly in twenty years. There is still much change to witness, in terms of creating an equilibrium.
Education is leaning more and more towards inclusion of serious games, virtual and augmented reality and simulation as learning mechanisms and tools. New concepts in Supply Chain challenge what's been tried and accepted before. More and more of what I do, features these new mechanisms and concepts.
I love what I do. Empowering people. Removing obstacles that impede the flow of knowledge and development, particularly where it's needed most are the things that drive me. I participate voluntarily in forums as a coach and mentor for others who are seeking the certifications. They want to improve their lives, their families security, their impact on their companies financial health, and their communities development. There's a common denominator, a common language - that makes us all one tribe from across the globe in this quest.
There's nothing more fulfilling that teaching, mentoring, coaching - those who want to learn, and sharing in their success.
