Friday the 28th of September represented a significant milestone for the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia as it was the inaugural event for SCLAA NSW.
With close to 250 people in attendance to show their support for the SCLAA, the breakfast function exceeded all expectations for an inaugural event.
SCLAA NSW identified a fresh new venue – the WaterView Convention Centre, a healthy breakfast and lakeside views for their launch. Steve MacPherson, National President and David Doherty CEO of the SCLAA co-hosted the function.
Prof. John Gattorna, author of Living Supply Chains, was the guest speaker for the morning and spoke about people powering contemporary high-performance supply chains. His presentation provided a suggested approach and demonstrated best and worst practice, examples from around the world.
The new SCL Job Board for the SCLAA was officially launched, in conjunction with SupplyChainJobz. The SCJ Job Board has been designed to provide the industry with one-point-of-call when looking for, or placing jobs, across Australia.
The overwhelming response to the SCLAA and SCL Job Board launch in Sydney was a gratifying endorsement of the SCLAA Partners Program.
The approach of the SCLAA is to facilitate the efforts of like-minded organisations seeking to pursue their goals in mutually beneficial activities, to the benefit of SCL Professionals and Practitioners who are the members of the Association and the industry as a whole.
The SCLAA can not thank their partners enough – Logistics Recruitment, Manhattan Associates, SupplyChainJobz - who worked with the SCLAA to organise the event, to Prof. John Gattorna for being our guest speaker and by no means last to the 250 people who came out and showed their support of the SCLAA.
The SCLAA looks forward to the next event in Sydney, on Coles Supply Chain, and then on to the 2007 ASCLA Awards event in Melbourne on the 22nd of November.
According to Logistics Recruitment, it was a pleasure to co-sponsor the SCLAA launch in Sydney. The event featuring John Gattorna's presentation on Living Supply Chains and the launch of the new SCL job board was a great success and we congratulate all involved in hosting the event.
Logistics Recruitment has been sponsoring industry events via its business units based in Amsterdam, Dubai, Shanghai, Singapore and throughout Australia since 1999 and this event was one of the high quality Logistics Recruitment has been involved with anywhere.
Logistics Recruitment was happy to see so many senior executives enjoying the networking event at the WaterView Convention Centre.
The SCLAA launch breakfast in Sydney was a fantastic event that Manhattan Associates were proud to be a part of. Not only was John Gattorna’s presentation relevant and interesting, but the venue was great and the overall atmosphere was buzzing and Manhattan Associates is definitely looking forward to the next one.
The board of directors would like to thank the board of SCLAA for partnering with SupplyChainJobz and SupplyChainJobz looks forward to a strong mutually beneficially relationship.
SCLAA NSW is a division of what was once known as the Logistics Association of Australia in VIC, SA, QLD and WA which was re-named to the SCLAA in November 2006. The SCLAA is run for members by members.
