WTG Webinar

The Manufacturing & Supply Chain Webinar Division

Our 60 minute webinars are organised in partnership with leading solutions providers, making illuminating connections for senior executives working in Manufacturing, Supply Chain & Logistics and Packaging.

The sessions are designed to provide you with the opportunity to be inspired and informed; to keep up with the latest solutions to the challenges that you face and develop strategies to provide performance improvement and cost savings – all without leaving the office.

All of our webinars are free to attend. It’s always best to attend the live session, to ensure that you have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with our speakers. However, all sessions are also archived OnDemand so that you can watch them at any time. Just choose a session from the listings and sign up – it’s as simple as that.

We work with some of the best solutions providers in the world to ensure that our webinars are providing timely, accurate information. We are always open to topics and speaker suggestions, so please get in touch with us to let us know what we should be covering.
