Cold Chain Distribution and Temperature Control Management - Dec 2011

Roger Lamb was a fantastic speaker, really engaging and highlighted a topic/issue I hadn’t previously given much consideration to. Also Gerrit-Jan was brilliant for me the most thought provoking speaker, made me think about how we can improve & develop our operation, which is really main objective of event. Lastly, Nigel Cryer was so impressive, he captured my interest and full attention, I would like to see/hear him speak again”
