Here at innocent, we’re excited to say that we’ll be hosting an IBF meet-up event at our home in Fruit Towers, London. If, like us, you’re really passionate about S&OP and forecasting* we’d love to invite you to pop down and join us.

It’ll be a relaxed, informal evening with a few short talks from our friends at IBF as well as a little bit about our innocent story. You’ll hear how we believe forecasting and S&OP is a critical part of delivering on our mission to make natural, delicious, healthy drinks that help people live well & die old.

There will be loads of time for chatting and meeting new people which we hope will begin to build a community of S&OP and forecasting enthusiasts. We’ll work on our group name later.

We know it can sometimes be tricky to stay awake at the end of a long day so there’ll be loads of smoothies (obviously) as well as some decent snacks and a few drinks to keep you going.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Andrew Scuoler, Managing Editor at IBF, will provide a brief introduction to IBF. James Davenport, COO at innocent drinks, will tell our innocent story, and why, as a leader, he’s so passionate about S&OP and forecasting being key to our success. Jennifer Thornton, Global Business Delivery Lead at innocent drinks, will then discuss the importance of partnering and purpose in S&OP and forecasting.
