Procurement and risk training- What is the purpose?

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

The purpose of Brian Farrington training input is to spare participants’ time and error – in delivering your business aims.

Our ‘grey haired’ resource is part of the toolkit of leading organisations, including 33 of the current FTSE100. We instil, reliably and effectively, techniques and solutions which have taken the very brightest and most determined of leaders in the field of procurement, a tireless effort to solve. Many of the techniques and examples of best practice are available elsewhere – there is no shortage of procurement ‘consultants’. You can find the answers on the Internet or in best-selling text books. However the problem in accessing these assets is that they need to be effectively filleted and skilfully dissected to be readily applied to your business.

That’s where we come in…

It is rare to find subject matter experts with strong presentation skills; the natural ability to engage with a group- motivators with depth. Established as one of the world’s first procurement consultancies, we have the experience and expertise to help you deliver your business aims.

Question: What is your ambition for developing the skills, knowledge and behaviours of your people engaged with suppliers?

We have collaborated with many of the leaders in procurement for over 35 years. People just like you, tell us we enhance procurement learning and development programmes. If you can spend a few minutes on the phone with Steve Ashcroft on 01744 20698 we can assess the ROI of working together. Or email here
