Procurement in a Radical Change Role!

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

So we’re all set for our next event on Thursday at the Emirates Old Trafford.

15 senior procurement professionals are joining me, Ray and, of course, Brian to invest their time in exploring “Procurement in a Radical Change Role!”

You know what?

We were a touch concerned about the ‘appetite’ from CPOs and company directors for a thought provoking procurement update – aiming to provide inspiration and momentum for their businesses going forward.

So “hats off” to the folks joining us from a range of organisations including,, Wigan Council, NHS, Cheshire East Council, Balfour Beatty, Veterans Council, Cabinet Office, Atkins and Peel Ports.

It should be an insightful and valuable event – with no ‘flannel’.

The house is full for this one – although there is a wait list :)

And we’re planning our next one at Lord’s, continuing the sporting venue theme.

Keep a look out – maybe we’ll get to meet you at the Home of Cricket?

Are you on Twitter?

The #hashtag for our Emirates Old Trafford “Procurement in a Radical Change Role!” event is #Radical15.

We’ll be posting insights and pictures and links, so you can get a taste of what we’re up to.

For a digital copy of the event briefing docs drop me a note and I’ll get them across to you.
