Event description

Description

With Brexit now officially underway, business optimisation and operational efficiency utilising business analytics have become all-important to UK-based companies. At Kent Business School, we can help you run your business more effectively and efficiently, resulting in a positive economical impact.

At the next Business Soundbites event, our Management Science group, together with Tim Waggott (CEO - Port of Dover) and Neal Williams (CEO - Priorty Freight), demonstrate, through case studies on the Port of Dover and international freight forwarder Priority Freight, what optimisation looks like and how it can transform the way you conduct business.

Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to meet other guests for a drink in the atrium of the new, state-of-the-art Sibson building.
