A selection of Britain’s major business leaders will once again take centre stage at The Institute of Logistics and Transport’s (ILT) annual logistics convention when it returns to Birmingham’s ICC for the second year (17 and 18 June 2003).

‘Focusing on the logistics sector, this year’s exhibition is set to be our most interactive and informative yet,’ comments Graham Ewer, ILT chief executive. ‘A combination of presentations, Q&A sessions and case study examples, over the two days, will be aimed at senior managers at a strategic level and junior managers at an operational level.’

Digby Jones, director-general of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), will be the keynote speaker setting the precedence for a number of world class speakers at the conference. He will be delivering a presentation on some of the major issues facing British business and the logistics sector. Graham Ewer, ILT chief executive, comments: ‘All our speakers will provide valuable insights into the events, trends and new techniques that are shaping the logistics industry at all levels. From his prominent position in British commerce – if his past speeches are anything to go by – Digby Jones is set to provide us with a dynamic and informative presentation.’

Digby Jones made his name in corporate finance and client development, working for the corporate law firm Edge and Ellison, where he became a senior partner in 1995. He joined KPMG as Vice Chairman of Corporate Finance in 1998 and his work focussed on the development of the organisation’s global market, ensuring consistency of service levels and a quality approach towards clients.
