Supply chain engagement: Bringing your ideas to market

Date(s) - December 2 2021
2:30pm - 5:00pm


Facilitating supplier/customer engagement is important to our members and for 2022 we are keen to seek your views on what you would like to see so we can build on what we’ve done over the last year.  Join us for this last formal networking event before Christmas to:

  • Discuss future ‘meet the customer’ opportunities/ideas and ‘SME Challenges’ (including some very specific local MML Network Rail needs)
  • Hear from one source of support; the Innovate 4 Rail team including two case studies from companies who have benefitted from the scheme
  • Participate in a short workshop/discussion to identify the barriers and solutions to commercialisation with a key focus on what actions RFM can take in 2022 to help and
  • Network with fellow RFM members over mince pies and mulled wine.

This afternoon event is designed to not just update members but also to provide an opportunity for us to seek your views on some key issues around client engagement going forward. We are keen to hear your views as we develop our 2022 programme of activities and events.
