There is so much more potential for businesses to grow and improve profitability, yet business leaders are stuck in the “day-to-day” transactional activities like a bird trying to fly against gale-force winds.  

Ishan will help you build capability in your business to manage the day-to-day and to improve its performance “year-on-year”.

How is this done?
Through implementing processes and building capability over four stages: 1) Stabilise, 2) Unlock, 3) Propel and 4) Excel 

Ishan has been in the Manufacturing Excellence space for 20 years, with the last 15 years specialising in the food sector with multinational companies such as Kellogg’s and Campbell Arnotts. In his most recent role, he was a member of Kellogg’s global team that developed its Supply Chain Excellence program.

Ishan has a wealth of knowledge in the field of Productivity Improvement and Leadership Development, working across six countries for nearly two decades.
