How will Innovation in Blockchain Technology Shape Supply Chains of the Future?

As part of the Intereskt Festival’s “Blockchain Day”, Australia’s first Fintech Festival, The SCLAA hosted its final Thought Leadership event for 2017 last night at Deskworx in St Kilda.

The buzz and excitement in the room was evident throughout the evening. We had a fantastic turnout with over 60 attendees to hear from industry experts on what the future of blockchain looks like in the supply chain industry.

Thank you to Alexar Pendashteh, Paul Sidhu and Julian Smith for their involvement, Vertical Talent as the major supporting partner of this event and the SCLAA committee for their hard work in making this event run smoothly.

SCLAA 2017 Women in Logistics Lunch

The Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia held the much anticipated 2017 Women in Logistics Lunch at Leonda by the Yarra last Friday 20th October, 2017.  The event hosted over 150 people and was a great success.  A special thank you to Leadership Management Australia/Think Perform (Gold Sponsor) and Maxitrans (Bronze Sponsor) for their valued contribution.  To our supporting partners Cash flow Finance, Vertical Talent and our latest National Partner Employsure, SCLAA appreciates your continued collaboration

Amanda O’Brien, SCLAA Chairman, was delighted to chair the day. There were many key messages which included, taking gender out of our conversation, overcoming adversity and encouraging change – messages which transport and logistics professionals understand well. Women working in logistics are competent and purposeful individuals who strive to work and be heard in an unyielding industry.  It is not just about being invited to the table, it is about being asked to make a contribution at that table that counts.  It is only through continual collaboration with industry that unified voices will be heard.

The key note address by Mr Peter Anderson CEO of the Victorian Transport Association sent a strong message on the value of work carried out by women in the Supply Chain.  Thought provoking, inspirational and well-articulated deliveries on the need for change and the continuation of this conversation, were expertly delivered by Lydia Kendray, Erica Gilcrist and Christine Tolson.

“Women in the workforce is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. It’s about outcomes, productivity, resource, liability, risk and return.  It is really important that our processes and policies; how we think and behave are reliant with and support our objectives in terms of employing women in logistics.  So have a think about what you are going to do differently from this day forward.  How and where are you going to critically examine and perhaps change strategy, policy, process, behaviour or language?  It matters not whether the change you make, the thing you do differently, is large or small, what matters is that you make a difference” – Christine Tolson (Air Commodore – Director General Logistics – Airforce)

For your viewing pleasure please link to the highlights from the day.  We look forward to seeing you all again next year.

Please do not forget to book to attend our prestigious Australian Supply Chain & Logistics Awards Gala Dinner coming up on November 17th at the iconic Luna Park.  This is our most celebrated event of the year.  Head to the Awards Gala Dinner event page for more information and to make your reservation.
