MSDUK Business Opportunity Fair

I had a real feeling of sadness on Friday. The conference was over, and everyone was packing to go their separate ways. It’s like when you attend events like these you enter a bubble. You form a little community, everyone gathers together, sharing and discussing, you eat together, stay in the same hotel, and the rest of the world is all but blocked out. I’ve made so many new friends, and have many business opportunities to action. The whole event was extremely rewarding, insightful and has expanded my knowledge and network. I am on a mission when I get home to organize Indigenous businesses to come to the next Minority Supplier Development United Kingdom (MSDUK) Conference here in 2018. The

MSDUK Knowledge Forum

I am so tired. I still haven't adapted to the time difference, and feel like if I don’t have another red bull, I’m going to die right now. I haven’t felt home sick at all, but I have wished some of my Indigenous business friends were here to share in the experience. I’ve checked in with my business partner Katina about business, and I rang my best mate Mitch Ross just to brag about what he was missing out on.

MSDUK International Day

International Day was the first day of the MSDUK (Minority Supplier Development United Kingdom) Conference hosted especially for International minority businesses from the USA, South Africa, Canada and me the only Aussie. There were approximately 80 delegates in attendance who represented UK ethnic minority businesses and supplier diversity professionals from USA and UK corporations. The event was held at the Grange City hotel which was a short 5 min walk from my hotel at Tower Hill. The panel I was speaking on was first up on the agenda for the day. I was extremely nervous, but nothing a little rescue remedy couldn’t solve. The panel was titled ‘Global Opportunities: Next stage of growth fo

I'm off to London

This weekend I jump on a big jet plane and head to London. But what makes this more exciting is, this ain’t no holiday. I’ve actually been invited to speak on a panel at the Minority Supplier Diversity UK (MSDUK) 2016 Conference on ‘Global Opportunities for Minority Businesses’ alongside the Presidents of Global Supplier Diversity Council’s from the UK, Canada and USA. I’m pinching myself right now about this. Is this really real? Am I actually adding an International Conference speaking engagement to my C.V.? I’ve come a long way since my journey with Supply Nation, (Australia’s supplier diversity council) began in 2012. I knew nothing about supplier diversity or working with Corporates o
