Speaker: Andrew Dartnell FCILT, Chairman, Staffordshire Group CILTUK

Our Chairman, Andrew, has, for more than forty years, planned and accompanied groups of members, some with their wives and guests, on tours to countries far and wide across the world.  The main reason for these tours has been to observe how other countries plan and operate their logistics and transport services, noting their many and different activities whilst undertaking their essential tasks of moving people and goods.

What started as a long-weekend away in Brussels for eight people has expanded, over the years, and the group has now visited  destinations over four continents from San Francisco to Hong Kong

Andrew will touch upon some happy and interesting experiences over these past 40 years with planning and operating these International Study Tours.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

How and Why Supply Chain Leaders should Champion Customer Centricity Initiatives - Full BookedBook Now

End Date:03/05/2017 13:00:00

How customer centric is your supply chain? The event is now fully booked

The increasing sophistication of the customer is one of the mega-trends of recent years, with service becoming as much a competitive differentiator as cost. But many supply chains have failed to recognize this paradigm, remaining internally “process-centric” and with scant regard for the end customer. The reality is that maximizing “the right experience” for the customer requires product offerings and their supporting supply chains to be integrated and indistinguishable. This has already been recognized by those leading companies who have already transformed their supply chains into customer-centric supply chains, such as Cisco, Starbucks and NCR.

 

What is Supply Chain Journey Mapping?

 

Supply Chain journey mapping is a human-centered design methodology that allows you to look at your supply chain from your customers’ perspective, and is equally applicable whether you operate in a B2B or B2C environment. The objective is to deliver better customer experience to improve retention and profitability.

   

This interactive workshop will include:

• Hands-on experience of mapping customer journeys through the supply chain.

• Use of journey maps to diagnose customer experience issues and identify opportunities within the supply chain to become more customer-centric.

Designing supply chain experiences that meet your customer’s expectations and deliver business value

What participants will learn:

 

Powerful, practical tools for creating customer-centered Supply Chain strategies, and tips for introducing supply chain journey mapping into your organisation for immediate action.

By the end of the day you will have identified innovative ways to improve the customers’ experience by incorporating and combining the people, process and technological resources that can drive new attitudes and behaviours within the supply chain to deliver superior results.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided. 

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, Oracle, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.

Description:


When:
8th May 2017, 18:00 - 20:30

Speaker: Catherine Weetman MSc FCILT, Director, Rethink Solutions

 
Future-Fit business: how the circular economy creates competitive advantage... and a supply chain revolution

Catherine reminds us of the questions and issues keeping business and supply chain leaders awake at night

Our world is changing at an ever-faster pace.  Global business leaders and, increasingly, governments, are adopting circular economy strategies to help their organisations become ‘future-fit’.  As they examine risks on the horizon and build a business case for a change in direction, they ask:


• How do we become future-fit?  What does it mean for business?
• What challenges does this present, compared to ‘business as usual’?
• What is the circular economy?  Intelligent designs for products, services and infrastructure,  circular business models and principles along the ‘design and supply chain’ are much more  than Recycling 2.0
• The implications of increased complexities and multi-dimensional flows for supply chains.

Catherine provides impactful, cutting-edge insight into the future of the circular economy, generating key discussion points for implementation in your own operations.

Catherine Weetman helps businesses develop ‘future proofed’, resilient strategies, assessing sustainability risks and value opportunities.  A Visiting Fellow at Huddersfield University and Vice-Chair of the CILT Environment and Sustainability Forum, her logistics career includes Kellogg, Tesco and DHL Supply Chain.
A Circular Economy Handbook for Business and Supply Chains, published by Kogan Page, includes a wealth of wide-ranging real examples.
