Another Great Sourcing Debate. And free drinks*

You may remember (indeed, you may have got sick to death of me talking about it) our first Sourcing Debate a couple of months ago. Well, BravoSolution liked it so much they’re sponsoring another. The event will be held on May 18th, 5.30 – 8pm in the Empire Bar at the Lamb public house, Lambs Conduit Street, London WC1N 3LZ.  Food and drink courtesy of BravoSolution of course!

I’ve again managed to pull off the trick of chairing it, which means I don’t have to do any real preparatory work, unlike the four lucky speakers, who will be proposing and opposing the motion;

This (public) house believes that the UK should pull out of the EU Procurement Regulatory Regime

Good controversial stuff!  And we have some excellent speakers; proposing will be my good friend Martin Webb, ex CPO of Orange who also acted as a reviewer for several of the OGC Procurement Capability Reviews of government departments. Opposing the motion will be the erudite and amusing Mr Lee Tribe, Procurement Director of the Metropolitan Police. In support, we have  John Jones, a supplier to Government who will no doubt tell us about his experience of EU regs, and Peter Micklewright, an experienced IT expert and a supplier to many public organisations.

Speeches are strictly limited by the ruthless Chairman to 7 minutes maximum, so there’s no time to get bored, followed by aggressive questioning from the audience, and a vote – just like being at the Oxford Union in fact, except we’re a bit older, no-one wears a gown and you have a glass in hand while you listen!

There are limited places and they’re going quickly, so please register here as soon as possible if you’re interested.
