UKWA/AIWA – the joint trade association representing the logistics industry – has announced details of its plans to launch a new business mentoring scheme for supply chain executives.
Mentors are experienced businessmen and women who are willing to share their business experience with others.
“There is plenty of evidence to suggest that business mentoring has a positive effect on a company, whether it is a new start-up or an established organisation,” says Roger Williams, UKWA/AIWA’s chief executive officer.
He continues: “A mentor can provide guidance on developing and improving a business; offer help with difficult decisions; suggest ideas for new products or services, or ways of working; give business tips based on practical experience and provide access to a network of contacts built up over many years.
“A business mentor can also help an individual to develop key business skills, improve problem solving abilities, build confidence and work on personal development.”
UKWA/AIWA’s mentoring team will comprise retired or semi-retired warehouse operators who remain close to the industry. Each individual will have a lot to offer today’s busy supply chain professional, as Roger Williams explains: “During their careers UKWA/AIWA’s mentors may have built up a warehousing business, found finance, hired and fired, squeezed assets, bought and sold companies, negotiated successfully, learned the principles of effective marketing, leadership, and lots more. They will also have extensive contacts within the industry.
He adds: “We believe that by making use of the collective talents and experience of such people UKWA will be able to provide a service that will be particularly welcomed by the owners or MDs of companies – particularly smaller companies – who may not have an obvious and qualified ‘sounding board’ available to them.”
If you would like to find out more about UKWA/AIWA’s logistics business mentoring scheme or would like to offer your services as a mentor, please contact Roger Williams, UKWA/AIWA’s chief executive officer on (tel) 0044207 836 5522.
