nimble media project

A cross between '80s classic game shows ‘It’s a Knockout’ and ‘Krypton Factor’, the Big Logistics Diversity Challenge is a fun, all-inclusive event providing team-building and networking opportunities for logistics companies.

By engaging teams in a series of fun physical, practical and mental team challenges, the Big Logistics Diversity Challenge effectively promotes the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion across the logistics industry, by demonstrating the business benefits attained when companies improve diversity.

The event’s informal setting brings together logistics professionals to explore how to tackle diversity collaboratively and collectively. The Big Logistics Diversity Challenge is the perfect platform for the industry to share best practice, network, team build and help shape what the profession does next to support a more inclusive sector.

Supporting The Big Logistics Diversity Challenge demonstrates your industry leadership and shows your active commitment to promoting a professional and diverse industry; something which is sure to impress key existing and potential new customers.

Team Wincanton absolutely smashed Big Logistics Diversity Challenge!

Amazing day of fun coming together with other leading logistic companies, all to build upon on ensuring inclusivity within our industry.

Thank you to the event organisers and all the sponsors that put on an amazing day.

On Thu 16 Sep 21 RAF OTA and RAF Coningsby Logs Sqn teamed up to enter two teams into the Big Logistics Diversity Challenge at Newark Showground.

This ridiculously fun, challenging, and competitive event saw the teams complete 12 challenges against 20 other teams from across the country. The eclectic events ranged from the Haka, Soapbox Derby, It's a Knockout, cryptic mental challenges and a dance off to name but a few, and all were done completely sober!

The key message was of diversity, unity and teamwork as well as learning more about all our team members. The RAF OTA teams were clearly doing something right as they battled for the top two places.

We send our thanks to Nimble Media for organising this fantastic event and we look forward to returning next year with hopefully even more teams from across the RAF stations.

It’s been a hard couple of years for everyone, and my team like many others has had ups and downs with people on furlough, isolation and now helping out where we can with drivers crisis & previously BREXIT.

It was SO SO NICE today to get out to the Big Logistics Diversity Challenge with the team and just do something as a team!

This was our second year, and every time we come away from it more together as a team! If you’re looking for something to do in 2022 which will just be a nice break for the team to just get some space - absolutely recommend this!

Thanks so much to the team that pulled this together from Nimble Media Ltd & Talent in Logistics from all the Yusen Samurai

What a fantastic day yesterday with our Emerging Talent team at the Big Logistics Diversity Challenge!

Thanks to Sharon Ross for organising such a fantastic event. Thanks also to my line manager Tia Wallace for such a warm welcome into my new role this week and also supporting me on getting involved in such opportunities.

First major event since the past 18 months and it certainly was great to meet the wider team in person! An amazing day with amazing people!

We didn't come 1st place but coming in 3rd place is still a great achievement. What mattered more was the team spirit and blast of a time we all had.

I know it may sound a bit like a losers speech but I mean it!!! (Losing does hurt though).🥺

What a day we have had at this years Big Logistics Diversity Challenge!

We have seen challenges that brought team collaboration, communication, mental ability and physical ability. A fantastic event to get involved in to promote #diversity, #equality and #inclusion in the workplace, and it was great to see so many #logistics organisations involved!

In all, Talent in Logistics was proud to be this years delivery partner and we can’t wait to get involved again in 2022

A great team building day that encourages colleagues to work together on a number of different challenges - requiring teamwork, collaboration and (perhaps most of all) encouragement! The event was well organised, executed and fun, all whilst promoting the importance of diversity across organisations.

It was really a fantastic event. As students, we could not only adapt to communicating, working and coordinating with different people in a diversified environment in advance, but also get a better understanding of how diversified working environment of the logistics industry is.
