In April a few of the Nkuku team, Ali, myself and our children set off for India.  The purpose of our trip was to  host a conference and lunch for all our suppliers.

The venue was in Delhi and our suppliers came from far and wide to join us for a wonderful day of business, socialising and good food!

The event was a huge success even/despite our children doing star jumps off the projector followed by commando rolls!

The day provided an opportunity to thank our suppliers for the amazing work they do and  allowed us to catch up with owners & managers, husbands, wives and children. 

The event kicked off with a presentation from the Nkuku team and ended in an open mic forum allowing our suppliers to share opinions and highlight any issues for discussion.  This proved hugely beneficial and informative.

Lunch consisted of delicious curry’s and other delights and far too much Opera (chocolate) cake! The afternoon was whiled away discussing new lines and  making plans for the future.  It has been an exciting journey so far and many of our suppliers have grown with us sharing their experiences and lessons learned along the way. 

The day ended with four very tired children and an elated Nkuku team excited about the future and pleased to have once again cemented long term relationships with our valued suppliers.

The following day Sarah (Buying Team)  Steph & Chris (Operations) sadly returned to the UK whilst  Ali & myself and our children  were fortunate enough to set off on a  fantastic three week trip around Rajasthan, more to follow…….
