I love travelling, I love educational programmes, and I love giving something back to the Supply Chain industry which has given me so much fulfilment over the decades. Combine these three elements and you will understand why I want to take my Supply Chain Secrets venture on a global tour in 2020.
I’m Going Walkabout With My Supply Chain Secrets Seminars
It’s definitely happening! I’m going to be touring the planet in 2020 as a one-man, self-contained ‘travelling seminar’.
Adventurer that I am, I plan to take my popular Supply Chain Secrets seminars to cities, regions, and countries where there is a dearth of such educational programmes. Countries such as Nepal, Gabon, Peru, Kenya, Brazil, and the eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus.
And I want to offer these very informative supply chain seminars at very low cost, or even for free!
Spreading the Word—And Helping Those in Need
As part of the everyday activities of my specialist supply chain and logistics consulting company Logistics Bureau, we like to help those less fortunate around the world. This is why we signed up as a Business Partner of the B1G1 Giving programme in mid-2012 and have already impacted the lives of millions of people (see how we are going right here).
But now I want to do something more practical—more hands-on, so to speak.
And I can’t think of anything more satisfying than travelling to out-of-the-way places, delivering the kind of seminars which have proved wildly popular in Australia, Thailand, and Vietnam. This global adventure promises to be as eye-opening for me as for those taking part in my educational outreach programmes.
What Will be on the Stop-And-Teach Agenda?
I have in mind to offer two separate one-day seminars in every place I visit—a basic one dealing with the fundamentals of supply chain management, and an advanced one covering more complex topics such as supply chain benchmarking, cost-to-serve, and strategy.
But my main motivation is to empower people who have had little access to the type of educational programmes that many of us can often take for granted.
I am still in the process of finalising the 2020 programme, but a stopover in Nepal is definitely on the cards. I have long wanted to visit this picturesque mountain kingdom and I can’t think of a more satisfying way to explore Kathmandu than by holding Supply Chain Secrets seminars in the heart of the capital.
And this will just be the start of what promises to be an exciting year of hoofing it around the globe with a ‘travelling seminar’ rucksack on my back.
