Rob will be talking to the group about the future of the world of work and will be covering the following points:
• Attraction & motivation
• The World is temporary
• Enhancing people's lives

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 18:30 and the 'formal' presentation from 19:00, 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 - put Supply Chain Network in the comments box.

A light buffet will also be provided.

Young Professionals Logistics & Transport Showcase Event - European Supply Chain DayBOOK NOW
20/04/2017 17:00:00 - 20/04/2017 21:00:00

When: 20th April 2017, 16:30 for 17:00 - 21:00
Where: Peter Brett Associates, Caversham Bridge House, Waterman Place, Reading, RG1 8DN
Meeting Point: Main Reception

 Speakers: Young Professionals

The logistics sector is the fastest growing area across British industry and commerce, and comprises an astonishing array of professional streams, ladders and specialisations that offer a range of career opportunities into the future. Young Professionals from the CILT will be holding an awareness event for the logistics and transport professions to coincide with the European Supply Chain Day in April 2017. The event will be facilitated by the Reading-based Thames Valley Group of the Institute and hosted by Peter Brett Associates.

The event is aimed at students and other young people who may or may not be considering a career in logistics.  It will offer a unique insight from those who have taken the journey into the logistics and transport professions, so that those responsible for advising students can also be better aware of what can be achieved by talented young people with a wide range of skill sets.

As well as access to senior ambassadors from across the logistics and transport spectrum, the event will have briefings and interactive presentations from Young Professionals describing their particular specialisms, how they got into their current roles, and what opportunities await them in their future careers.  We are planning to have speakers and stands covering the following specialisations:

  • Rail
  • Logistics and Supply Chain
  • Road Transport
  • Bus and Coach
  • Aviation
  • Transport Planning
  • Freight Forwarding
  • Defence Logistics
  • Operations Management
  • Logistics Information Systems
  • Humanitarian Logistics

What's in it for me?

For students

It will offer an insight into the broad professional career paths across logistics and transport with unbiased explanations of what they actually mean - from those who are on their journeys, rather than those trying to 'sell' a career to young talent.  The event will put the students in direct contact with enthusiastic professional practitioners in a safe, unpressured environment where they can find out what transport and logistics is really about - warts and all - to help them consider whether the sector is for them. There will also be a range of stands from professional employment consultants, and educational organisations who provide specialist logistic and transport education and training that delegates can approach if they want to.

For advisors and coaches of young people

It will help to explain what the logistics professions actually comprise - much more than trucks and sheds - to inform their support strategies and career solutions for students and other young people across the spectrum of age and ability.

For sponsors

Sponsorship packages may be found here. It will offer access to a significant pool of talent who have demonstrated an interest in launching a career in logistics and transport, as well as the gatekeepers of that talent - careers advisors, lecturers, coaches and mentors. It will offer a significant opportunity to raise public awareness and their corporate profile among a vibrant young demographic. If you wish to sponsor this event, please contact Graham Sheen.

For Young Professionals

It will offer an opportunity to showcase their talent, and the specialist sectors in which they operate. It will raise their personal and professional profile, and present a personal development opportunity through planning, organising and running a major, nationally recognised event.

For more experienced CILT members and Senior Ambassadors

For those members who are over 35, this will be an fantastic opportunity to see, interact with and influence the extraordinary YP talent that is the future of our profession, as well as the younger generation that we need to attract into it.

When booking your attendance at this event, please indicate which of the above groups you wish to book under - student, advisor, sponsor, YP or senior professional.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.
