Automating the Procurement Process

Automating internal processes can be seen as risky, especially when it comes to the procurement function. However, there are many benefits that any growing business can benefit from, such as optimising spend, streamlining supplier management, reducing risk and ensuring best-value purchasing across the business

 

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

  • 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 concise, factual and easy to follow course. Presentation was very good.” - Margaret Wearing (ATT)
  • 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.

    - John Nother - Group CIO, Card Factory
