For many out there this is the ‘January’ of the working world. A new financial year, new plans, strategies, hopes and dreams…. 

 

My Supply Chain Resolutions are as important now as ever. In this blog, I’m going to look deeper into my second Supply Chain resolution “Focus on Your Core and Trim the Fat”. It’s all about inventory policy and Core product identification.

Why I chose recruitment by Conrad Johnson

Many people ask me why, having a sales career already, I decided to move into recruitment?
