Bridging the gap
Supply chain processes that run like a well-oiled machine form the backbone of any retail outlet. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, many of these processes suffered due to the lockdown and transport restrictions. However, the effect of another such outbreak can be mitigated with appropriate preparation. Identifying the processes that are the worst hit in a disease outbreak and making contingency plans for them is no longer a luxury for retailers. As the world gears up to live in the new normal, robust supply chain processes that can survive a large-scale outbreak should be the norm.

Meet Our Certified Menterns
It was amazing! I learnt so many things like creating engagement on social media platforms. The 1:1 with mentors were super helpful. I learnt how to create Instagram ads, identify goals & do competitor analysis- so many things.
There was a lot of interactive sessions with Mentors. The Menternship I completed gave me a new perspective to how work has to be done. I truly enjoyed working with real figures & actual industry case studies. 
My experience was great as I got a chance to explore subjects like Analytics which are difficult to look for. The Menternship allowed to get subject knowledge and see what goes behind the making and delivering of a product.
My experience was very useful as I learnt so much about Fleet Management & Digital Marketing connected to the real-world scenario. I learnt how to actually work with social media channels like IG & Facebook.
