Monday 3 February 2014
My name is Chris Brodie and I am a Senior Supply Chain Consultant in the Mining industry. I have over 40 years of experience in mining supply chain in many parts of the world, so you will know from this that I am one of the ‘Silver Power Brigade’.
I started consulting in the mid 90’s but found that before too long some of my clients made me an offer I couldn’t refuse and I stayed on projects in Central Asia and Africa longer than is decent to maintain a thriving consulting business.
In recent years I also ran my own mining supply chain support businesses. In Almaty Central Asia, my company provided consulting and project services, supplied materials and equipment and represented a number of high profile international mining suppliers. This went well before the economic downturn, but from 2009, this became more challenging and at the end of 2011, I passed the company on so that I can concentrate on mining supply chain consulting. Even then, in 2012 and 2013, my (two) projects turned out to be longer-term than planned and at the end of 2013 I decided to change my approach.
As I am far too young and active to think about slowing down, from this year I plan to work on short- to medium-term mining supply chain projects and have created Chris Brodie Consulting for this purpose, see website http://www.chrisbrodieconsulting.com
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT ON THIS SO I CAN IMPROVE IT
I will continue to work in association with a few tried and trusted colleagues, also mostly Silver Power Brigade members.
Now I have prepared the website and started this blog, I’ll go on with marketing though my network over the next couple of weeks.
