Procurement Talent event – a special offer for our readers

On March 6th,  in London, I’m chairing what we think is the first ever conference dedicated to “Procurement Talent”.  I agreed to do that because it seemed to me a good idea that someone was doing something constructive in that field, when there is so much talk about the topic these days.

There’s a strong agenda in place, with speakers from leading firms such as SAB Miller, ABF, M&S, AstraZeneca, Fujitsu, and delegates from organisations such as Mars, Associated Newspapers, Aviva, Trelleborg and the MOD.  And as Chairman I’ll make sure we get time for some real discussion and interaction as well as the formal side of things.

You will be pleased to know I’ve also agreed with the organisers that we can also offer a substantial discount to our readers.  The fee under this special offer is £350, (over £200 off the list price)!  That should make it much more accessible to a lot of people, I suspect. (And the day is worth 7 CIPS CPD hours if that’s of interest).

Pretty much every organisation or senior procurement executive I meet talks about how people are their main asset, or how developing skills in procurement is their top priority. So this is a chance for you to act on that intent – come along, learn from others, contribute your own ideas, and I hope we can actually use the event to move forward the profession’s thinking about challenging people issues.

How do we create more “star” procurement people, and improve the skills – technical and behavioural – of everyone in the profession?  What’s the balance between technical and behavioural skills? How do we motivate the generation coming into the workforce now? What effect is globalisation having on the procurement workforce? And there are many other questions....

To book and access the special offer, on the conference homepage scroll down to the ‘Buy Tickets’ box and click the yellow button in the bottom left hand corner titled ‘Click here to enter a promotion code’

Hope to see some of you there!
