TT Talk - Business on the Move
Are you a winner in the global supply chain game?
'Business on the Move', a board game created by former teachers in the context of the UK education system has been so successful in its mission to engage all ages in learning the critical role of the supply chain in business that it is going global!
TT Club has been involved with the initiative from an early stage, instantly seeing the opportunity to promote greater awareness among young people and encouraging them to seek this vibrant industry as a career.
Huge global brands have been queuing up to get a spot on the board, supporting this imaginative educational tool and taking advantage of a unique branding opportunity. M&S, DHL, Tesco, Unilever, John Lewis & EY all feature on the UK game.
The global edition is now nearing its launch date with 80% of sponsorship confirmed. TT Club fully supports the project and calls on readers to invite yet more powerful brands, retailers, banks or other global businesses with which they have influence to explore sponsorship opportunities by contacting the organisers and helping raise the profile ofBusiness on the move.
