With a keen interest in the power of the customer and employee experience, he tested and implemented strategies for improving experiences in a variety of sectors.

The supply chain challenges of vaccinating 8bn people: Part 2 - a chat with Chris Roediger
This is the second of my two part podcast series on the challenges of vaccinating everyone against Covid-19. If you missed episode one with Alina Gross, you can check it out here. Background - in August a colleague of mine Alina Gross (@gross_alinaa on Twitter) penned an excellent in-depth piece of Forbes titled The Next Supply Chain Challenge: How To Vaccinate The World. I was reminded of that recently when Pfizer and BioNTech announced the successful results of their vaccine trials. A couple of days later I was made aware that SAP announced its Vaccine Collaboration Hub (VCH) to address many of the challenges highlighted in Alina's article. I reached out to Alina, and members of the VCH team to see if they'd come on the podcast to discuss this unique supply chain challenge, and they agreed, so here we are. In this episode Chris Roediger talks about how SAP's Vaccine Collaboration Hub is addressing many of the issues facing the successful rollout of a vaccine to the world's nearly 8 billion people. This was a really interesting episode of the podcast. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I learned loads, and I hope you do too. If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

Millionaires steer clear of debt. Millionaires have a mentality of abundance vs. scarcity. They embrace change and usually see adversity as an opportunity for growth. Millionaires are frugal, not flashy. They spend less than the general population on groceries, restaurants and clothing.
