The Supply Chain Network has been running since September 2004. It was set up as a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. The group numbers about 50 people, with 20 typically at any one meeting. We meet about every six weeks or so in a pub in central London. Networking normally starts from 6pm onwards with snacks at 6.30pm and the 'formal' presentation from 7pm, with more networking afterwards. We aim to have a mix of 'experts' and presentations from within the group. The environment is very informal. The objective is discussion rather than a formal presenter at the front, with presenters encouraged to bring issues as well as experience.

We sometimes have spare spaces, so if you're interested in joining us, please contact Kirsten Tisdale here. - (When booking, write Supply Chain Network in the comments box).

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted.
