Some of our members who attended our last event MMXII in October 2009 will be familiar with both our guest speaker and host. John Charles runs a successful SME catering company in South London who has over the last 18months attracted the attention and investment from several corporate buyers. This exposure has also led to Catering 2Order receiving several national recommendations and awards. John himself is no stranger to civil servants and senior government ministers with regards to issues around small businesses.

John will speak candidly to the delegates in attendance about the importance of “minding your own business” when it comes to stage one of any procurement opportunity, the application process. This subject is timely given the emerging opening up of tier 7 opportunities for Games contracts in March 2010.

Also imparting his experience of tendering for the Olympics is Daniel Taylor,Founder & Managing Director, Metro Design Consultants.   Metro Design Consultants is responsible for shaping revolutionary workplaces for iconic organisations. With Daniel’s leadership the company proves that good design promotes efficiency in both environmental and monetary terms.
