"Here was a group of SC experts who were very willing to offer their experiences to help others solve their issues."

- CD, Head of Supply Chain, Pharma multinational, UK

"The interaction between participants through such round table discussions were surely more fruitful and the level of knowledge and experience shared was excellent and beneficial."

- BE, Lean Processes Leader, Global electronics manufacturer, Germany

"Understand there has to be a link with suppliers but it is done in a nice way. Much more about building relationships than a quick short term sell."

- JS, Supply Chain Director, Major F&B brand, UK

"Reinforced some of the things I am doing as a SC Leader and gave confidence to keep on doing them! Reminded me of things I had let slip - the Leadership session was excellent. Gave some insights into how to implement some key initiatives e.g. Real Time Visibility"

- MH, Supply Chain Director, Fast-growing bio-tech, UK

Special thanks to our network-recommended partners

About Intent Member Meetings

  • Capped attendance (to maintain a private and safe setting for genuine sharing)

  • Private, by-invitation only, Chatham House Rules

  • Cross-sector, Director level, pre-profiled (all attendees receive full details on participating members)

  • Mutually agreed 121 meetings based on common interests (no obligation or pressure)

  • ONLY Advisory Partners hosting roundtable discussions

Concurrent roundtable discussions

​The roundtable discussions are concurrent / simultaneous and they run FOUR times during the day so members choose their top four discussions to participate in.

Members submit questions and agenda points and we work with the discussion hosts to tailor the agendas for participants. Each member receives a personalised agenda with the times of each of their chosen discussions. No competing companies are scheduled on the same session.

Matched introductions

​We schedule member-to-member and member-to-partner 121 meetings for all attendees (that wish to). These meetings are based on common interests and are agreed in advance. There is no obligation to attend any meeting that is not of interest.

What else?

Each meeting also includes two or more of:

  • Member viewpoint/experience sharing: a member shares a short, honest review of a recent project or improvement made in their business, with a focus on 'lessons learned'.

  • Expert Q&A: we invite a subject-matter expert on an important theme for our members and then invite them to ask whatever they want

  • Leadership "refreshers": knowing what to do is only half the battle...our members then need to make things happen! We invite inspirational coaches to equip our members with new tools and ideas to help them realise their goals

  • Something totally different: we invite interesting and unusual non-industry luminaries whose insights and experiences can provoke tired assumptions and stimulate new thinking

  • Rapport-building activities: we end each meeting with some fun stuff so that you make new friends, not just new contacts
