Sustainability in the Supply Chain - How you can changeBook Now
Start Date:16/09/2019 18:00:00
End Date:16/09/2019 20:00:00
Event Code:LSC0313
Description:


When: 16 September 17:30 (for 18:00) - 20:00
Where: BDO LLP, 55 Baker Street, London, W1U 7EU
Meeting Point: Reception

Speaker: Simon Pringle, Visiting Professor of Sustainability and Innovation – University of Chester
And Managing Director, Project Rome Ltd

Climate change has been firmly on the agenda of leading businesses for some considerable time.  Those businesses understand that value is both created and protected by focussing on more than just financial capital.  Given the risks to their reputation and shareholder value, some corporates are beginning to provide leadership where governments are slow to act.  

They are doing this against a background where activism is on the rise; placing brands and reputations at ever-greater risk.  Whether that activism is represented by Extinction Rebellion disrupting cities or a coalition of investors with nearly US$10 trillion in assets targeting companies for not reporting their climate change, water security or biodiversity data, the shift in public sentiment over the last few years has been profound.

For most organisations, effective supply chain management is the critical part of delivering on a truly sustainable business model.  The majority of climate impact, water consumption and other resource usage tends to sit in the supply chain. As carbon targets are set and expectations of transparency rise, the need to address it becomes an issue of commercial self-interest.

We risk moving away from a world of stability and international rules-based co-operation to one where change and uncertainty is the norm. If business as usual is no longer an option, how will organisations effectively navigate the changes that are to come?  Our speaker Simon Pringle will talk about supply chain and sustainability, offering a different perspective of how sustainability can viewed, information captured and reported.

Simon Pringle is a leading expert in commercial strategy, innovation and sustainability.  He has over 25 years’ experience of working with organisations to align their commercial and sustainability strategies – helping create value, protect value and manage risk.  He sits on a number of advisory boards and governance panels.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

Making Warehouse Technology Investments Attractive For Your BusinessBook Now
Start Date:03/10/2019 10:00:00
End Date:03/10/2019 14:45:00

When: Thursday 3rd October 2019, 09:30 Registration 10:00 - 14:45
Where: Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, Fawsley, Near Daventry, Northants, NN11 3BA

Long term investments in warehousing technology can too often be considered as a lower priority than investing in other areas of the business. It is important, therefore, to align such large-scale investment needs with the overall business strategy and to demonstrate accurately the value of such investments to ultimate business decision-makers.

This roundtable will explore how you can ensure such business strategy alignment, build complete and robust business cases, adopt the most appropriate solution design approach and gain sponsorship for such key, long-term investment decisions.

You will benefit from an open and honest cross-company discussion, based on real life examples of what has worked well and also where end results have been below what was expected. A round-table attendee take-away will be a pragmatic checklist of things to consider and address for such future important projects.

       

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

Using Engineering Data to Improve Vehicle Uptime and Reduce Maintenance CostsBook Now
Start Date:07/11/2019 10:00:00
End Date:07/11/2019 13:30:00
Event Code:COR0384
Description:


When:
Thursday 7th November 2019 (Registration 09:30) 10:00 - 13:30
Where: Macdonald Manchester Hotel, London Rd, Manchester, M1 2PG

Not only is vehicle engineering data vitally important to use in the transport and logistics industry, but it also helps to reduce maintenance costs of fleets and improve vehicle uptime. Very often, drivers are not confined to a single type of vehicle. Instead, they are often required to drive different vehicles whilst managing their demanding schedules. Using this data will prevent possible damage to fleets, as well as saving costs and notifying fleet owners when drivers respond to warnings.

We are pleased to invite you to a round table event hosted by MiX Telematics and CILT in order to discuss and share your opinions about the best use of the vehicle engineering data!

The roundtable discussion will focus on:

  • How drivers respond to dashboard warning lights.
  • Can you have too much data and how do you strike the right balance?
  • How to use telematics to feed data into operators’ engineering systems: one way or bi-directional / useful or not / perceived benefits and experience?

Predictive maintenance: the holy grail or just wishful thinking?

This is an interactive discussion for fleet managers, engineering managers and directors and operations managers.

Register now to be a part of our round table!



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

Diabetes is an invisible condition, which can cause an individual to suddenly lose consciousness from a hypoglycemic episode. There are strict guidelines set by the DVSA for people driving who have diabetes, if they have not been followed and an accident occurs, it would be a criminal offence. 4.6 million People in the UK today have diabetes and the number is rising.  With this ever-increasing risk, we will be discussing more about diabetes and the legal landscape around the condition.

Calling all Freight Forwarders! Accelerate the Speed, Accuracy, and Transparency of Your Global Supply ChainBook Now

When: Thursday 14th November, 09:30 Registration 10:00 - 15:30
Where: National Motorcycle Museum, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, B92 0EJ
CPD: tbc

Customer experience has become the key differentiator in Freight Forwarding. How do you ensure you are not following the wrong path towards fully integrated data and customer centric solutions?

As a freight forwarder, keeping up with customer demands and deadlines is challenging, especially with manual processes. A Transportation Management System provides automated workflow, compliance, and data insights, to you help optimise cost and service levels.

This one-day event will explore ways to eliminate friction in your supply chain via technology, data, networks and people.


What to expect!

We will explore the why, what and how of data generation and capture across complex global Freight Forwarding networks and question the functionality and deployment requirements for Transport Management Systems operating in this sector.

We will discuss turning data into valuable information to improve decision making capabilities for customers and their clients and how incremental improvements can be made in cost, quality, cash and / or service. From the application of Business Intelligence we will look towards the development of Machine Learning and AI and the hype, or substance, behind the digital forwarding challenge.



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

Leveraging modern technologies helps simplify processes, reduce costs, improve customer satisfaction, develop new offerings, and provide greater predictive control and visibility over your supply chain and logistics services.

Several real-life customer cases will be detailed by our speakers, including Nobia and Tetra Pak.

The event is addressing to experts, managers, directors and executives who are in charge of transformations in Supply Chain and Logistics. They come from the business side (Operations, Supply Chain, Logistics), but also from the IT side (CIO, Technical IT) and Finance (CFO).

Where: Reading Town Hall, Blagrave St, Reading, Berkshire RG1 1QH
Meeting Point: Waterhouse Chamber 

Speaker: Terry Murphy FCILT

Terry Murphy is known across our institute as an experienced and successful senior Logistics/Supply Chain Director and NED. He has worked in the logistics and supply chain industry for almost four decades.  Initially studying Geography at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, he subsequently graduated with a Master’s degree from Cranfield Institute of Technology (now Cranfield University).  

This event will clearly be of great interest to all professionals engaged in supply chain and distribution activity, but Terry is such a logistics icon, winner of last year’s Excellence Award for warehouse operations, and fantastic raconteur that attendees will learn from his experience whatever sector they work in.

He worked for many years with Whitbread, where he was employed in both the drinks and food logistics businesses.  Following this, since 2000, he has concentrated predominantly on non-food retail supply chains, firstly with Argos and latterly with DSG (Dixons), where he was Distribution Director for the Home Delivery operation, responsible for the stockholding and delivery of circa 1.8 million customer orders per annum. 

More recently, Terry was accountable for the John Lewis supply chain for nearly 12 years through the most significant period of change experienced by the Partnership. With Online sales growing significantly year on year, the network designed for store replenishment, required a thorough transformation which was delivered successfully, cementing John Lewis' position as the UK's leading omni channel retailer.





The event will be live streamed on the CILT Thames Valley Group Facebook page, but Q&A will only be available at the venue to allow more robust discussions (so come along and join in the debate!), which will continue in the adjacent pub at 2000 hours. All are very welcome and encouraged to join our vibrant team there.
