The 16th SCALA Annual Supply Chain Debate is coming up 27th June, with a roster of five speakers confirmed from supply chain and logistics leadership roles at some of the UK’s biggest brands.
Chris Marrow, Director of Logistics at Sainsburys will be joined by Jim Gallagher, Supply Chain Director at BOSCH Home Appliances; Peter Broome, Supply Chain Director for UK and Ireland at Ferroro; Simon Hobbs, Director of Aerospace, Hi-Tech and Pharma at Kuehne + Nagel Ltd, and Rebecca Attoe-Butt, who heads up Supply Chain for the UK and Ireland at Dyson.
Collectively the five speakers have decades of experience in logistics and supply chain management, and the debate promises to be a lively and informative session exploring the latest supply chain issues, including some of those identified in SCALA’s recent Third Party Logistics Report. Based on a major UK survey to ascertain companies’ satisfaction rates and areas of concern regarding their third-party logistics providers, the report sets out recommendations for building better business relationships for the future across the supply chain industry.
The event is the 16th in SCALA’s series of annual debates, recognised as one of the major events in the supply chain calendar. It will take place in the stunning grounds of the historic Coome Abbey in Warwickshire, and includes drinks, canapes and networking, followed by presentations from the speakers, opportunities to ask questions of the panel, and a buffet supper with further networking.
John Perry, managing director of SCALA, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming such a high-profile and experienced panel of speakers to our Annual Supply Chain Debate. Over the years, we’re proud that these events have established a reputation for lively debate, innovation and imagination, and they bring together many of the leading lights across the industry.
“With the recent publication of our Third Party Logistics Report, we’re looking forward to exploring different perspectives on third-party logistics providers – what they get right, where they can improve, what customers are looking for and where the industry is heading next. I’ve no doubt that our five speakers will have some fascinating insights to bring to the table.”
