SCLP Event Summary - Networking Mixer for
Supply Chain & Logistics Professionals
Thursday 25 January 2018 at The Volvo Race Village
Thank You for attending our networking mixer for Supply Chain & Logistics Professionals (SCLP) on Thursday 25 January, held at the HGC VIP Pavilion, The Volvo Race Village, at Kai Tak Park - part of the Volvo Ocean Race and Festival in Hong Kong for the first time ever.
Guest speaker Andrew Pindar OBE DL, Volvo Race Ambassador, shared some fascinating insights about the logistics aspects of the Volvo Ocean Race, which is considered one of the toughest sport competitions in the world - an eight month around-the-world sailing race, stopping at twelve cities - this year including Hong Kong for the first time.
‘As I travel the world with our business GAC Pindar, delivering the logistics for the Volvo Ocean Race, we get to attend many business functions but I can readily say that Mark Millar and SCLP have found a winning formula. A measure of success at these events is the number of business cards that you hand out and collect, and - on the basis that I have had to send for a reprint - this SCLP evening was outstanding!’
Andrew Pindar OBE DL, Volvo Race Ambassador
