IMCD Supply Chain hosts the Augustus Connect platform meeting

On Thursday 28-05-2015 IMCD Group hosted the Augustus Connect platform meeting for Supply Chain Directors.

Augustus Connect brings together professionals and organisations on the basis of knowledge, experience and trust. This method of sharing knowledge and expertise offers great opportunities for organisations, enabling participants to look ‘from the inside out’, reflect objectively and avoid tunnel vision.

When organising a platform meeting Augustus Connect works together with expertise partners such as but not limited to; Erasmus University Rotterdam, Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), University of Tilburg, Ernst & Young, Deloitte etc.

During the platform meeting at IMCD we discussed the topic of “Partnerships with Suppliers”.

We had a very interactive afternoon where we shared visions, experiences and best practices.
