Opening Panel Discussion

To Be Confirmed

10:00 - 10:40

Buying green, the rise of Power Purchase Agreements

What is so alluring about these agreements for commercial, industrial, and institutional buyers? And why are businesses like Google, Amazon, and Walmart placing PPAs at the center of their energy strategy?

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.

Optimising Strategic Procurement through AI & Big Data

Where will AI take the profession & How do we ready ourselves in order to move procurement up the value chain

Words from our attendees
  • 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.

    - David Golding - Head of Procurement, JLL

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
