Redesigning Procurement for Agility

In an uncertain environment, only those that are responsive, adaptable and agile will thrive. What is Procurement's role in enabling this?

Words from our attendees
  • This was our first experience with Global Business Events and first impressions are important. I was impressed by the level of seniority at the event. The venue worked well, the size of the event was good for networking and the 1−2−1 business
    meetings were strong. Well done and I look forward to the next event’.

    - Rob Simms - Sales Director, BOX
  • The CIO Event is a truly global event with international perspectives on current IT trends. These include the usual Social, Mobile, Cloud, Security, 'Internet of Things', Big Data/Analytics, Etc. It's somewhat unique in its format in that it provides keynotes, one-to-one meetings, workshops and open areas for discussions. Its strength also lies in the networking of its attendees both at the events and between times through social media environments such as LinkedIn. 

    - Mal Postings - Global CTO - Quintiles

  • I thought the quality and mix of contributions and the engagement from the audience was excellent. 

    It felt more like an interactive team exercise in some respects, than a sit back and listen conference, and for me was more enjoyable and genuinely helpful for that. Similar folks, passionate about their brands and their work, but with different best practice to share – very collaborative, which I personally like.

    So all good and thanks for the chance to take part. It’s always a drain on time, which none of us have, but it was worth it.

    - Tim Sinclair - Marketing & Retail, Alrayan Bank
  • Another great event − one of the best I have attended ! Please pass on my thanks to all of the team at global events
    which has helped make this CIO event one of the best I have attended. A great event theme, with good topics,
    interesting round table discussions, super location and excellent gala dinner event with both Tori and the cancer research theme.

    - Vince Sparks - IT Director, Stobart Group
