KNOW YOUR OWN VALUE

By Andrew Leighton | 27th March 2018

The yacht 'History Supreme’ - a boat plated with 100,000 kg of gold and platinum, costing $4.5million and labelled one of the most expensive ‘things’ in the world.

Expensive yes. But is it valuable?

Some would argue that “the most expensive thing in the world is trust - it can take years to earn and just a matter of seconds to lose” - Tupac Shakur.

And as Angela Gaskell, head of sourcing and compliance manager at UK-based plus-size fashion retailer N Brown Group, said during a recent interview with just-style.com: “You can't have a partnership if you don't trust either the retailer or the supplier."

So for sourcing professionals working in the apparel industry, how do they build a successful business based on trust? 

What value do they place on a trustworthy supply chain compared to the cost of a damaged reputation?

It’s a topic that came up during a recent discussion filmed between just-style editor Leonie Barrie, managing director of Olah Inc Robert Antoshak, CEO of InclusiveTrade.com Rupa Ganguli, and myself - and you can watch a clip of that discussion below.

re:source will help you decide where to source your products from and when to change your sourcing plans.

So ask yourselves, what price would you pay for trust?
