    Collaboration in action – a case study

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Much of the coverage of initiatives around sustainability understandably focuses on the activities of large organisations. With constrained resources, SMEs may not have as much opportunity to engage. In this talk we present a case study on a current initiative at the William Jackson Food Group aimed at giving SMEs a voice in how we run collaborative projects.
