As the lock down continues, Bis Henderson Consulting will be providing insights and expertise at various virtual events throughout May. Our Digital and Strategy Director Louisa Hosegood will be providing content and hosting a series of peer-to-peer discussions at two ongoing events this month: SC Intent Group and The Retail Hive.
If you’re looking to learn, solve challenges and network with like-minded peers – we’re finding virtual events are the next best thing to traditional conferences and Round Table events.

Consumer habits have changed / are changing / will change permanently. We’ve seen considerable differences of opinion on this in recent discussions, so how do you prepare for consumer supply chain post COVID?

How are others see how others are preparing? And what they’re expecting to see?
