SCA & IoD To Hold Event

by | Aug 16, 2017

As we accounced last week, the Supply Chain Academy will be collaborating with the Institute of Directors (IoD) to jointly deliver global trade themed events, using the Academy as the ‘go-to’ lead on global trade and supply chain disruptions issues.

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.

The first joint event will be a ‘Global Trade Opportunities’ Thought Leadership Dinner, to be held on Thursday 5th October 2017 at the Supply Chain Academy headquarters in Upminster, Essex.

Allie Renison, Head of Europe & Trade Policy for the IoD and Gary Cobbing, Commercial Director for the Uniserve Group (the UK’s Leading Independent Logistics and Global Trade Management Provider), will be speaking on ‘Global Trade Opportunities’.

Allie will explain what the IoD is doing to get as much clarity and certainty from the government as possible, as well as joining Gary to cover:

  • Top tips on best practice and advice on  how businesses can maximise global trade opportunities
  • An in-depth look at Customs and VAT
  • An update on Brexit negotiations

In addition, Allie and Gary will be taking specific questions about what companies should be doing now to prepare for Brexit, which is almost certain to have a big impact on business.

Guests should arrive at Upminster Court at 17:30hrs for networking and drinks. Dinner and speeches will begin from 18:00hrs, and the event is anticipated to end at around 20:30hrs. A paid bar will be open after the event until 23:00hrs.

Register your place at the event now.
