Procurement Events This Week – Pub Debate, Real World Sourcing and Procurious

A new week dawns! Here are our final reminders for three procurement events which you might like to consider, and although they are London-centric in two case, the third is digitally available to everyone, anywhere!

Let’s take them in order.

Tomorrow we have our Procurement Pub Debate at the Red Lion Pub in Whitehall, London, 5.30 – 7pm. The motion is “This House believes that the result of the General Election will have no impact on public procurement.” Tickets are free, courtesy of Procserve, we’ve got around 30 registrations, but we still have room for a few more and you can register here.  Heck, if you're in the area, come along, we'll fit you in! (It is downstairs in the private room apparently, if you can't see us when you arrive). My colleague Jason Busch from Spend Matters US will be joining us to if you want to come and say hello to him.

Then on Wednesday, my friend and colleague Guy Allen is leading the latest Real World Sourcing session with BravoSolution, at the Jugged Hare restaurant near the Barbican in London. The topic is Category Management ; a Fresh Look . Guy will be giving us some thoughts on latest thinking and practice in that key area, including issues such as localisation versus globalisation. As of Friday, there were only three places left, but follow the link and there may be some late availability!

Then on Thursday, we're at the Procurious Big Ideas Summit on April 30th in London. Physical attendance is by invitation only but you can participate digitally, hear the sessions, ask questions and so on if you register. The aim is to really look at the big questions in procurement and develop some "IP" and new thinking through the day. It's an innovative approach , and we're looking forward to meeting and hearing people such as Helen Mackenzie (see our article here) and Jules Goddard of London Business School, whose article here is highly recommended.

 

A busy week – and hope to see some of our readers at some point in the next few days!
