RESA June eNews

Welcome to the June RESA eNews.

We are  half way through 2016 and have also just reached the halfway point of our [DEVELOP] supply chain development program, so we thought we would take a moment to share with you a few key lessons that have come out of the seminar and workshop sessions.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with 12 great companies who are looking to grow their business and succeed in the resources supply chain, and some of the discussions throughout the program have been incredibly enlightening, see this month's blog post for an insight to lessons learned and [DEVELOP]ments made!
