Sainsbury´s Technical Management Academy

Sainsbury's and Campden BRI have joined forces to bring you the Technical Management Academy® (TMA), a leading edge technical development programme. It is designed to deliver Sainsbury´s and their suppliers joint vision of having the best technical management in the industry

"The Academy provides a stimulating professional development programme with the following objectives:

Bertrand Emond – Event Director


All workshops will be industry–focused, practical with up–to–date information, interactive and tutored by experts from Campden BRI and from industry.

The workshops are not training sessions as such on each topic. It is assumed that the participants are already familiar with the subject and theory. The sessions concentrate on reinforcing knowledge, challenging practices/beliefs and sharing experiences. Some pre–course work is included.

Target group and entry criteria:

The Academy is designed for individuals in Technical Management roles in manufacturing companies supplying Sainsbury's own brand products. TMA workshops are for the Sainsbury's aligned personnel only and on no account should personnel dedicated to other retailers' accounts attend the training.

Format and duration:

The programme consists of a number of separate workshops. These can be completed in any order.

Each workshop runs regularly with no more than 20 delegates, to ensure maximum interaction.

The programme also includes the TMA annual conference held at Campden BRI to discuss hot topics with invited guest speakers and to foster networking. Date for the Annual Conference is 6 July 2017 at Campden BRI, Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, GL55 6LD
