Engaging City firms in a supply chain diversity programme
We worked with one of the organisations commissioned by the City of London Corporation to deliver its Ready to Supply the City programme.
The programme provides developmental opportunities for small companies looking to become 'fit to supply' to City firms, and has resulted in City firms finding new local suppliers.
Our role involved engaging and facilitating the involvement of City firms in hosting roundtable discussions/workshops/ networking events for small, local suppliers, providing an insight into accessing their supply chains.
One example was a roundtable event joint hosted by service delivery partners Telereal Trillium and MITIE, who together shared with small business attendees an insight into the extent of the supply chain and the different entry points that potentially exist to them.
