As December rolls around we’ve been writing our list and checking it THRICE. We take our inspiration from our esteemed colleague, the organiser of the greatest supply chain success story of all time, Father Christmas. Kudos to St. Nic, that is one long list.
So, if you’re a dishevelled friend, loved one or co-worker of a super deserving event organiser, here are some gift-giving ideas so you can channel Mr Claus rather than the forgetful Mr & Mrs McCallister in Home Alone.
