Seal Software seminar – risk management through the contract lifecycle

We featured Seal Software a few months back, and indeed wrote a research paper for them at that stage titled “Getting to grips with Contract Management”.  Their “contract discovery” software is truly remarkable, in that it enables you to find and capture key points from contracts stored anywhere in your organisation’s computer files and folders – contracts you may not even know existed.  It greatly reduces the time taken to get to grips with the contract population, automating to a large extent work that was historically highly labour intensive.

So on May 7th, from 3 pm till 5 pm, I am speaking at an event  Seal and PWC are hosting in London, titled “Procurement’s role in risk management throughout the lifecycle”.  We will be talking about key elements of contract discovery, the risk elements of contract management,  and related topics – it’s certainly not a hard sell for Seal, I should stress.  But we will look at how and why understanding the entire contract landscape of the organisation is such a critical part of the wider procurement and supplier risk management picture.

As well as my contribution, Tim Cummins is speaking. He’s CEO of the International Association for Contract & Commercial Management, a “global non-profit organisation devoted to raising the quality and results achieved from trading relationships”.

Tim is incredibly knowledgeable on contract and risk management related topics  and always has interesting viewpoints. It’s not often we are on the same platform together, so I’m really looking forward to that, and I suspect we might have some quite sparky discussions! Then we also have Simon Chard of PWC – he leads a team “helping clients review, improve and transform capability in procurement, outsourcing, off-shoring, risk management and governance.  of PWC”.

Places are limited, (and understandably not available to folk from other software providers, or major consulting firms given the Seal / PWC involvement. ) I’m sure it will be a worthwhile session, so if you are interested, there is more information here,  and you can register directly via this link.

 And after the event concludes at 5pm, there’s a chance to network and continue the discussion over drinks and snacks at a very pleasant nearby hostelry.  Finally, if you haven’t got a copy of the Paper I wrote (mentioned above), that can be downloaded – free on registration – here.
