25 Apr 2024
Theatre A

The interviewer will ask the interviewee some of the following questions as well as asking the audience to ask some questions of their own:

  • Can you give us a quick summary of your career journey so far within supply chain leadership and any highlights that really stand out for you?  
  • Why do you think sustainability is such a priority for the food industry currently when they are also dealing with the challenges of cost of living, changing legislation and international wars?
  • How can retailers and their partners build frameworks for collaboration in an industry renowned for being hugely competitive?  
  • What steps can the retail sector take today to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions effectively? 
  • Why is data quality so important for communication and decision making up and down the supply chain within retail and how can this be measured?
  • Data can mean many different things to different parts of the supply chain so how do we make sure it is aligned and used effectively? 
  • How can smaller retailers with smaller budgets make their supply chain more sustainable?
  • How would this work in practice and what does success really look like in challenging times?  
  • We know consumers are wanting to make more sustainable buying choices so how can this information help them in this quest?
