What is the best thing about your job? Supply chain is the link pin to the success of any FMCG business. Having a strong connection with sales; finance; procurement and IT means that no day is ever the same. Working closely with HR means that development in supply chain is the perfect grounding to develop any career.
What’s your best piece of advice to any supply chain professional? Celebrate the success. Too often we naturally focus on the 0.1% when our service level is 99.9%
What will have the biggest impact on supply chains in 2020? The struggling platform of 3PL businesses across the world. Rising fuel, shortage of drivers and continued focus from retailers and manufacturers are putting increased pressure onto shared networks.
Why are you looking forward to speaking at Supply Chain Conference 2020? The best way to help resolve the issues we all face are to share the stories and projects together to learn from our successes and failures.
