Brexit is Coming – What Should Procurement Do NOW? Join our Webinar To Find Out

Unless something extraordinary happens, the UK will leave the EU in just six months time.  Well, probably …

While many organisations have been adopting a wait and see approach, that is becoming increasingly untenable as the clock continues to tick. This is not the time to assume that all will somehow be well – organisations need to be proactive and take some actions now as well as planning for the different options which are still on the cards. (Actually, from what we have seen recently, anyone who assumes that our politicians will “make it all right” needs their head examining).

Procurement is of course one of the business functions most impacted by Brexit.  Issues range through the potential for different sourcing strategies, perhaps looking at more local supply, to tariffs and issues around logistics – you know, the 200-mile-long queues at the ports that will stretch the length and breadth of the country (if you believe some people).

So, while we didn’t rush into talking about Brexit for various reasons, the time feels right now to run a webinar, titled “Brexit is coming – what does procurement need to be doing NOW?”

In the session, we will take a look at some of the issues and highlight where we believe thought and action are needed now. It is aimed at both public and private sector professionals – many of the issues will be the same – although we will touch briefly on some of the “EU procurement” questions that are still relevant, as well as those issues that are relevant to everyone such as transport and sourcing strategies.

I’ll be presenting along with Richard Hogg, UK MD for software firm Jaggaer, with another speaker to be announced shortly. Please join us on November 15th at noon (UK time) for our webinar – as always, we’ll make sure there will be time for some questions and discussion. You can register here, free of charge of course, and even if you can’t make the time, registering now will get you immediate access after the event so you can then listen at your leisure.
