Sainsbury’s, BOSCH and Dyson among speakers confirmed for leading supply chain debate

The 16th SCALA Annual Supply Chain Debate is coming up 27 June, with
a roster of five speakers confirmed from supply chain and logistics
leadership roles at some of the UK’s biggest brands.

Chris Marrow, director of logistics at Sainsbury’s, will be joined by
Jim Gallagher, supply chain director at BOSCH Home Appliances; Peter
Broome, supply chain director for UK and Ireland at Ferroro; Simon
Hobbs, director of Aerospace, Hi-Tech and Pharma at Kuehne + Nagel
Ltd, and Rebecca Attoe-Butt, who heads up supply chain for the UK and
Ireland at Dyson.

Collectively the five speakers have decades of experience in logistics
and supply chain management, and the debate promises to be a lively and
informative session exploring the latest supply chain issues,
including some of those identified in SCALA’s recent Third Party
Logistics Report. Based on a major UK survey to ascertain companies’
satisfaction rates and areas of concern regarding their third-party
logistics providers, the report sets out recommendations for building
better business relationships for the future across the supply chain

The event is the 16th in SCALA’s series of annual debates,
recognised as one of the major events in the supply chain calendar. It
will take place in the stunning grounds of the historic Coombe Abbey
in Warwickshire, and includes drinks, canapes and networking, followed
by presentations from the speakers, opportunities to ask questions of
the panel, and a buffet supper with further networking.

John Perry, managing director of SCALA, said: “We’re delighted to
be welcoming such a high-profile and experienced panel of speakers to
our Annual Supply Chain Debate. Over the years, we’re proud that
these events have established a reputation for lively debate,
innovation and imagination, and they bring together many of the
leading lights across the industry.

“With the recent publication of our Third Party Logistics Report,
we’re looking forward to exploring different perspectives on
third-party logistics providers – what they get right, where they
can improve, what customers are looking for and where the industry is
heading next. I’ve no doubt that our five speakers will have some
fascinating insights to bring to the table.”
