CILT - Supply Chain Network

Supply Chain Network

The Supply Chain Network was established by Kirsten Tisdale as part of CILT's London Region activities in September 2004. It is a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. After over 100 events, as at late 2018 it's been in a period of transition, but it looks as if we'll be having meetings in the Baker St area again in the fairly near future...

I'm pleased to say that someone has come forward to continue this group - Nick Eggett with the support of his company has agreed to do that. Nick shares my feeling that it’s important to have a forum to meet like-minded people, share experiences, raise awareness of what’s happening in the sector and celebrate what is achieved. With that in mind, and conscious of the sensitivities around data, if you haven't already done so via email, could I ask you confirm to me that you would be happy to remain part of the group and that you would be happy for Nick to have visibility of your personal contact details. Once we've sorted this out, we can then get the meetings back on the road! If you want to receive future mailings, contact Kirsten Tisdale - just put 'Supply Chain Network' in the comments box on the contact form that this link takes you to, as well as completing your contact details.
