The Digital Shift in Procurement

Paul Harlington is the Group Procurement Director for TUI, the world’s number one tourism business, and also a Fellow of CIPS. In this talk, he will speak about how the worlds of IT and Marketing are merging into “digital”, and what CPOs can and must do in order to ensure that they keep up with this emerging trend.

Corporate Travel Management and the gaps in duty of care

Risk management has expanded over time, largely due to technological advancements and the ever changing world we conduct business in. Corporate travel risk management is an important addition, specifically, ensuring the safety of employees while traveling both abroad and domestic. This still remains a challenge for leaders to effectively put into place due to gaps in corporate travel risk management practices and technologies.

Words from our attendees
  • A very informative and insightful day. Would highly recommend this event to any progressive procurement professional/organisation

    - David Golding - Head of Procurement, JLL
  • Having been a salesperson for over 20 years I have been to many networking events over the years and I have to say, this has got to be one of the best! It was well managed from the outset but the calibre of attendees was far superior and the timings of all meetings were kept. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone who is serious about networking and lead generation. Looking forward to the next one!

    - Greta Read - Business Development, Pickfords
  • 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
  • I just wanted to say congratulations on a great event and thank you all for your help, especially Ceri and Sarah who have spent time in advance and at the event with me to help me get the most out of the days here.I have really enjoyed the event, and made some good new contacts as well as insights into common challenges we are all facing in the CIO community. It’s been run superbly so thank you, and I look forward to the future events.
