This two-day event is dedicated to strengthening procurement’s business partnerships, helping you deliver increased business value through innovation, revenue generation and competitive advantage.

Expect to be challenged by industry experts and inspired by case studies from your peers, all while growing your network for benchmarking and idea-sharing long after the Forum ends.


Key themes on the Forum agenda include:

- Improving procurement’s brand within the wider business; Showcasing the ways in which procurement can think strategically and embed behaviours that work to further the goals of the business – first and foremost.

- Pivoting procurement’s role to include value-add activities; Being defined by cost savings is limiting and risky. If procurement teams want to be decision makers, they need to demonstrate the capabilities to create real value for their business partners.

- Developing a team that shares the vision of procurement as a business partner; Building capabilities to meet business need requires a balanced combination of acumen, leadership and commercial insight. True leaders create an environment for those traits to flourish.

- Using innovation as a catalyst for ongoing co-creation & collaboration; Innovation doesn’t just happen, it requires aptitude, workflows, buy-in and a culture that embraces working beyond the normal remit of procurement.
