Oliver Wight hosts 3rd annual conference in Amsterdam
Leading business transformation consultants, Oliver Wight, are hosting an exclusive conference on how to achieve business transformation through Integrated Business Planning on 11th and 12th April in Amsterdam.
This premium event for Oliver Wight clients, both past and present, is at the Sheraton Hotel, Amsterdam. The two-day event will include a Class A Awards Dinner with guest speaker, French Paralympic Biathlon champion, Anne Floriet, followed by a full day of informative workshops, insightful presentations and valuable networking sessions.
Presenting at the conference, Oliver Wight CEO, Les Brookes, and Partners, Anne Marie Kilkenny, Birgit Breitschuh, Liam Harrington and Stewart Kelly, will demonstrate how to successfully implement Integrated Business Planning (IBP) for proven transformational benefits, and inform attendees why engaging leadership is critical to delivering business transformation.
“In a dynamic and demanding world, business leaders are tasked with delivering stakeholder value and implementing strategy, typically aimed at growth and innovation. Yet many businesses lack a collaborative management process that allows them to manage deployment and implementation of that strategy,” states Les Brookes, CEO of Oliver Wight EAME LLP. “Integrated Business Planning (IBP) brings that truly strategic perspective, helping to deliver real business transformation and helping the business to get it done” he continues.
Attendees will be given the opportunity to see first hand what IBP can deliver for their business, by gaining an understanding on what the process involves and what it takes to get the sustainable results needed. Through market insights and informative client presentations from adidas Group, Saint-Gobain Weber and Amgen Breda, the conference will discuss the importance of the implementation process and the best ways to achieve it.
Oliver Wight believe that delivering business transformation starts from the top and leaders must be on board from the outset. The consultants will share their knowledge and understanding, showcasing the need for management to walk the talk and excite their people about change and the future direction of the company.
Oliver Wight has worked with some of the world’s best known organisations to achieve sustainable growth; companies such as: Wrigley, BP, Heinz, , Revlon, adidas, Pfizer and 3M, have achieved Class A status.

Integrated Business Planning
At the leading edge of management thinking and practice, our Integrated Business Planning (IBP) model lies at the heart of our clients’ journey to outstanding business performance. Oliver Wight are the originators of sales and operations planning (S&OP) and IBP can most simply be described as advanced S&OP. However, unlike S&OP, IBP brings a truly strategic perspective, integrating diverse processes - in the extended supply chain, product and customer portfolios, customer demand and strategic planning - into one seamless management process.
Supply Chain Design and Optimization
Oliver Wight supply chain design and optimization allows organisations to understand their position within the extended supply chain; identify where value is being created and destroyed; develop profitable relationships with suppliers customers and consumers; and optimize their supply chain (however complex) for the ultimate in customer service and business performance.
Performance Benchmarking for Supply Chain
Oliver Wight Performance Benchmarking provides a qualitative and quantitative assessment of supply chain performance, allowing organisations to identify opportunities for improving customer service at the same time as dramatically reducing supply chain costs.
