  • The Shopping Behind the Logistics - article by Kirsten for the Women in Logistics page for Storage Handling and Distribution magazine in March 2017 edition - looking at the continued impact of e-commerce growth on logistics.
  • How to Understand the Retail Supply Chain - a piece written by Kirsten for a post on LinkedIn in February 2017.
  • Assessing the Culture of a Provider - article by Kirsten for the Women in Logistics page for Storage Handling and Distribution magazine for the June 2016 edition - about how to have confidence when selecting a logistics provider.

  • Construction congestion - a vicious circle - a blog piece by Kirsten, published on the FTA's website in March 2016.
  • Kirsten's groundbreaking and influential piece: There is No Driver Shortage - if you find this piece interesting, you may be interested in our page on the driver crisis.
  • Reducing the Risk of Strategic Decisions - leaflet written by Kirsten as a handout for the Women in Logistics conference in June 2015. It was written in advance of the conference and is based on Kirsten's own experience in this area, but will be updated to incorporate ideas that came out of the workshop on the day ...when there's a spare moment to sift through the mass of post-it notes - the session was described as post-it paradise!
  • Data Collection for Logistics Outsourcing - leaflet written by Kirsten as a handout for the CILT Outsourcing & Procurement forum in February 2015. Not the most exciting topic, but it is based on both Kirsten's own experience in this area AND input from the CILT Outsourcing & Procurement Forum Committee. It's been written to be reasonably easy reading as well as useful.
  • European Transport Costs - not given to a live audience, but a slide pack pulled together in July 2014 as a part-paid/part-favour project for a client interested in market cost predictions for transport across Europe.
  • Making Logistics Decisions - presented by Kirsten to CILT's Supply Chain Network in November 2013.
  • Logistics Buyer's Toolkit: Data that can help you was given to the CILT Benchmarking Outsourced Logistics event in November 2013. Kirsten was asked to give a repeat of her previous presentation on this subject - all slides reviewed and the majority updated. Also here is an updated page of links that Kirsten compiled as an additional handout for this event. If you find any new useful links or any that don't work, do let us know and we'll update the sheet. Kirsten says "This page of links is so good I still use it myself - in 2015 there's only a couple that don't work".
  • Logistics as a career? was given to CILT's University of Northampton event on Enhancing Graduate Employability on 23 October 2013.
  • The Retail Supply Chain: Beyond the Text Book was given to University of Westminster MSc Logistics & Supply Chain students in March 2013.
  • How to Understand the Retail Supply Chain was given to University of Westminster MSc Logistics courses as part of "An Industry View” in March 2012.

  • Changing Perspectives was given to the Women in Logistics AGM at Norbert Dentressangle's NDC in Stoke on Trent as one of the "WiL Success Stories" in January 2011. You can see Kirsten speaking at the WiL AGM in the left hand panel (top two photos - you can click on the photos to enlarge).

  • SSI Schaefer presentation. We're hoping to reinstate the link to a write-up of the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport event.
  • Membership Demographics: the obvious uncovered was given to MemCom2007, a case study of an assignment carried out for the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport - Kirsten was asked by CILT to apply some of the techniques she would use in logistics assignments to analyse its membership database. Also see article further down this page.

Other presentations have included: an invitation to visit Klaipeda to speak at a staff conference organised by Kursiu Linija (now part of Eimskip) as part of its celebration of Lithuania's membership of the European Union in 2004; speaking at CILT London Region events on Home Shopping (1998) and European Supply Chain Location Strategy while working for Marks & Spencer (latter published in Focus in 1994 - see archive material at bottom of page); and standing in for a senior colleague on SS Canberra as part of Logistics 92 (reported by the trade press as having given one of the best speeches - but this was before PowerPoint was routine, so no slide pack!).
