We would like to invite you to this month's Business Growth Lunch which will be held at The Venue, Wigan Youth Zone.
Ian Walker, founder and MD of 3P Logistics, will be our guest speaker at this month's event. Ian will talk about the journey he has taken from launching 3P Logistics to turning it into a market leader within the outsourcing world of logistics and fulfilment services.
As well as talking about his career, Ian will also discuss some of the business challenges he has faced, touching on the lessons learnt and the risks that have paid off, and how he manages an end-to-end supply-chain business to gain a competitive advantage.
