“No, not an “Iceberg” from Greenland, an Iceberg Lettuce! What does the humble underpinning of a classic prawn cocktail have to do with supply chain design and the MBA? Well, it’s your chance to find out.
Professor Marc Day will pitch an engaging ‘take’ on a headline concept for supply chain management and connect it to business strategy. He’ll use a living, breathing lettuce, a short video and rely on plenty of audience interaction.
You will be able to experience the typical learning dynamics of an EMBA – Global workshop including interactive discussions and group work and get to meet potential other students on the programme. Come along and find out how the lettuce can make you a more unique and superior performer!
One final thing: a warning in advance – a lettuce will be harmed in the process of this taster lecture.
