Oliver Wight lead exclusive supply chain optimization day at ESC2012
Supply chain design and optimization specialists, Oliver Wight are offering the exclusive opportunity for supply chain leaders to attend the pre-conference day at the 10th annual Extended Supply Chain Conference on Monday 16th April 2012, for which they are Lead Sponsor.
The consultancy firm has a limited number of tickets available for the pre-conference day, which kick-starts the three day ESC2012 event at Radisson Blu Hotel, London, and brings together key thought-leaders and innovators in supply chain optimization from across Europe. In addition to providing the opportunity for delegates from a range of industry sectors to network, there will be a series of interactive workshops, panel discussions and presentations on how to increase visibility, lower inventory and improve efficiency across the entire supply chain – critical in the current economic climate.
“The health of any organisation depends more than ever on its ability to successfully meet the demands of its customers,” explains Oliver Wight CEO, Les Brookes. “With this comes increasing pressure for businesses to become more agile, reduce inventory and drive efficiency. It is no longer enough to have your own business under control; optimizing your supply chain is essential for achieving an efficient, profitable business and gaining competitive advantage.” Brookes will be presenting at the event, along with a number of other leading Oliver Wight partners.
The day will include presentations on a number of supply chain topics, including performance benchmarking and Integrated Business Planning (advanced S&OP), as well as a session on the role of technology in the supply chain, from supply chain solutions provider, Infor. There will also be inspiring case study presentations on global food manufacturer, Heinz; packaging company, Nampak Flexible; and the UK military.
“This conference day is all about helping organisations meet the increasing demands of customers, combining blue sky thinking with the realities of their existing supply chain footprint and infrastructure,” concludes Brookes.
Tickets are available from Oliver Wight. For more information contact Zoe Davis on 01452 397200 or [email protected]
