Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategic and International Management and Deputy Dean at the London Business School is the author of 'Reinventing Management'. Earlier this year The City Bin Co. had the opportunity to meet Julian when he was giving a seminar at the 'Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards' where The City Bin Co. won a ‘Deloitte Best Managed Companies Gold Standard’s Award'. Juilian spoke about the key traits that make up a best managed company.

The City Bin Co has won the Deloitte Best Managed Companies (Ireland) Award  in 2009, 2010, 2011 & the Gold Standard Award in 2012. Why does this matter? It sets the bar in creating an excellent level service for customers. Like the actor who gets an Oscar for delivering a quality performance, The City Bin Co. has made the practice of excellent performance part of its culture. The big winner is the customer.
