About the presenter:
Steve's subject knowledge is based on over 30 years experience in manufacturing, predominantly in the Aerospace, Defence and Automotive sectors, as well as several other commercial companies.  Practical, hands-on experience in senior positions such as Supply Chain Manager, Head of Materials & Manufacturing, Operations Manager and Lean Change Agent is supported by key qualifications including MCIPS and MSc Procurement.
