The BIC Breakfasts have been introduced for 2013 as a series of short, informal monthly breakfast sessions for BIC members & non-members to pop along to before work (sessions will be approx 90 mins) to chat about any industry supply chain issues/success/challenges of interest or concern.
These sessions cover a specific topic each time and will also serve as great opportunities for networking and are open to all levels of membership.
Sessions (with breakfast) are free to all BIC members and there is a small charge for non-members.
