SCA Collaborates with IoD

by | Aug 9, 2017

At the Supply Chain Academy (SCA), our overall purpose is to professionalise the supply chain sector. To help achieve this, we build strong partnerships with leading credible educational institutions, professional business and lobbying groups and other business partners both in the UK and abroad.

To advance our reputation and work, we are pleased to announce a new collaboration with the Institute of Directors (IoD). The IoD have been supporting business leaders since 1903 and are a representative voice for business to government, supporting over 30,000 members through 48 regional branches across the UK.

Working in collaboration, the Supply Chain Academy and the IoD Essex Branch are in discussion to jointly deliver global trade themed events, using the Academy as the ‘go-to’ lead on global trade and supply chain disruptions issues.

Opened in 2012 by Lord Digby Jones, the Supply Chain Academy is owned by the Uniserve Group; the UK’s Leading Independent Logistics and Trade Management Provider.

The Supply Chain Academy is the only worldwide learning centre that focuses solely on the supply chain, offering high level insight and tuition for executives through our exceptional facilities. The Supply Chain Academy is proud to be part of this collaboration and is looking forward to contributing to helping the sector overcome challenges.

Uniserve’s Commercial Director, Gary Cobbing, and Institute of Directors (IoD) Head of Europe & Trade Policy, Allie Renison, will be speaking on ‘Global Trade Opportunities’ at our first planned event on 5th October. More details to follow.

For more information on the collaboration, or how the Supply Chain Academy can help your business, please email Alex Mortimer (SCA’s Commercial Director) at am@supplychainacademy.org.uk.
