The Leeds City Region Supply Chain Programme have been working with a number of Large Enterprises (LE’s) in the North of England to develop a series of workshops looking at “what makes a good supplier” to them.
As part of the work, it has been agreed that LCR SC Programme will run a number of invitation only workshops, assisted by the LE’s to support the SME’s to increase their potential for working with these LE’s by becoming a supplier of choice.
Therefore, LCR SC Programme is happy to announce that second event of the Supplier Excellence Series will take place on 10th of March with Quality as main theme. This is a follow up from the launch event which took place on 12th of November last year.
The Quality SES workshop is scheduled for the 10th March 2020 from 17:30 to 19:30 at the 3M BIC in Huddersfield. The workshop will be run by the Supply Chain team with significant input from representatives of BAE and Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices as the main Large Enterprises (LEs) in the workshop. The focus will be around identifying what is important to LE in their supply chain from quality point of view. In addition to the LE point of view, we have invited SMEs such as Witt UK and Brandon Medical, who will explain their journey to becoming suppliers of choice to similar LE’s in their sectors.
This is “by invite only” event, therefore aimed only at current Leeds City Region Supply Chain Programme participants.
Therefore, if you would like to attend series of events, receive technical and financial support for your operations and you are not yet Supply Chain Programme participant, please register your interest here.
