What do Des O’Connor, Victoria Wood, Joan Bakewell, Lawrence Dallaglio and Joe Calzaghe all have in common?
Unless you spent the weekend on Mars, you must know that they have all received honours in the Queen’s Birthday Honours which were announced on Saturday.
All of which is a way of highlighting the fact that recognising and honouring excellence is an essential aspect of our society – and nowhere is it more important than in the supply chain
All too often supply chain professionals are the unsung heroes of business. Companies can make excellent products, they can run brilliant marketing campaigns, but the performance of the supply chain can make the difference between delighting and disappointing the customer.
And a key way of recognising outstanding achievement is through The European Supply Chain Excellence Awards.
In fact, the entry deadline for the awards has just been extended to Monday 7th July so now is the time to get working on your entry.
You could join an elite group of Europe’s leading companies – past winners include: Sainsbury’s, Dell, Vodafone, Cisco Systems, Coca Cola, Marks & Spencer, GlaxoSmithKline, Infineon, Tesco Direct, TNK-BP, Johnson & Johnson, and Jaguar.
And you could see your achievements recognised at a glittering Awards Dinner at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on 28th October.
