Together For Success
17 June 2016
Growing Our Businesses Together was the theme for the 2016 Costain Supply Chain Conference.
The conference, held at the iconic Crystal building in London’s Docklands, attracted 200 members of Costain’s supply chain plus 70 members of Costain’s senior team, including Main Board and Executive Board members.
The event was hosted by David Taylor, Group Commercial Director who, in his opening address, highlighted safe working, collaboration and innovation as key ingredients in growing our businesses together.
David said. “I think of the Supply Chain as an extended Costain family. It’s very important that we gather periodically to present our corporate strategy and our thoughts on how we go about successfully winning and delivering work.”
During the day a variety of speakers provided an insight into the ingredients for success. Chief Executive Andrew Wyllie gave a presentation on the Group’s progress and future strategy. There were also some excellent case studies from the supply chain itself as well as a presentation from Gary Wright, an external expert in client procurement.
In addition, the event recognised high performance and Richard Howell, Group Head of Supply Chain and Dan Rennison, Group Head of Design Management, handed out awards to five suppliers in the following categories:
Design Services – Mott MacDonald
Value Creation – Walters UK
Innovation Portal - Tarmac
Collaboration – 4Way Consulting
Supplier performance – WJ North
The conference also provided supply chain members with an excellent opportunity to network with senior Costain executives.
