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.

In these challenging times, the need for logistics, transport and supply-chain professionals to compete effectively and efficiently is more critical than ever. Glacially slow economic growth, austerity measures and reduced budgets require that companies supply chains are operating as efficiently as possible.

The purpose of this CILT event is to highlight the benefits to your business that benchmarking will provide. Benchmarking involves a review of your business processes aimed at providing a comprehensive understanding of your performance in relation to similar organisations and with overall industry best practice.

The CILT LogMark Benchmarking Club is a business management tool that facilitates gap-analysis of logistics, transport and supply-chain operational activity using widely accepted KPI’s that cover inventory management, transport management, risk management, human resourcing, customer service, operations management and other business disciplines. LogMark provides its members with a comprehensive survey, guaranteed data security, a club-based benchmarking network, and independently audited results.

Come and join us for breakfast here at the institute where our speakers will discuss the benefits of benchmarking your supply chain operation. Our speakers include:

  • Clare Bottle FCILT, Coca Cola European Partners
  • Colin Spurrier, Whitworth Bros Ltd 
  • Daryl Chesney, CILT

This is a free event, however spaces are limited, therefore if you would like to attend please confirm at your earliest convenience.
