Young Forwarder Network Event - Wednesday 17th November 2021
BIFA's latest session for its Young Forwarder Network took place last week.
Our Young Forwarder Network runs a number of events throughout the year allowing the next generation of talent to come together and share their experiences. We are lucky to have many industry leaders join us and last week's guest speaker was Alan Platt, the CEO of Good Logistics.
Alan shared his career journey with us; reminding us of the many avenues of opportunity that exist as a result of working in our industry.
Our network were also invited to submit their questions to Alan across various topics, including his advice to those just starting out, his top hacks for self-motivation plus the challenges he has faced and how he overcame them.
Wednesday's session had a great turnout, with over 60 members of our industry taking time out of their day to attend. We'd like to thank everyone who came and hope that they enjoyed the session. Thank you also to Alan for joining us.
Our sessions wouldn't be possible without the support from our YFN Committee so finally we would like to thank Laura Hobby (F.S Mackenzie), Josh Clark (John Good Logistics) and Katy Hopkinson (Kuehne + Nagel) for helping to facilitate this event.
Stay tuned for updates on our next session!
