Driving Value, Innovation and Growth

Supplier Collaboration: Driving Value, Innovation & Growth

Industry disruption is forcing companies to be more agile and innovative than ever, and many are turning to their supply chains for future success. Once thought of as zero-sum game designed to drive as much savings as possible out of suppliers, progressive procurement organizations are developing mutually beneficial relationships with suppliers that contribute strategic value. Attend this panel discussion to hear examples of this in action and how greater collaboration with suppliers helps to build trust, overcome mutual challenges, and drive success.

  • Congratulations on a superb event! A well worked agenda with relevant content and an invaluable opportunity to meet with a senior audience in an environment as stunning and inspiring as the Celtic Manor.Throughout my esteemed career I have attended more events than I care to recall, but this one really stands for me as being amongst the best! I would like to thank the team at GBE for their diligence and commitment to creating a outstanding event from start to finish. Thanks

  • 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!
