Join CPO's from all across Europe!
The business world is ever changing and becoming more complex year on year. As a result, the role of the CPO is forever changing and, in a way, has forced the CPO to put themselves in the shoes of the CEO and focus on key business drivers to stay ahead of the curve.
Discussing key topics such as Procurement transformation, the uses of IoT, Data Analytics in Supplier Management and how technology is shaping procurement, CPO Event gives you the opportunity to meet leading decision makers under one roof at one time, to be part of the discussions that are shaping the future of procurement and to network and develop contacts that will strengthen your business.
The programme is driven by our senior level Advisory Board including representatives from BBC, Engie, Ladbrokes Coral, Office of National Statistics and TUI.
The CPO Event brings together leaders from across the public, large enterprises & mid-market sectors. The Procurement event will provide you with a strategic and practical toolkit to help drive transformation including:
In 2018, research indicated that category managers are spending up to a quarter of their time on low-value, administrative tasks that aren’t contributing significant value for the organization. On top of this, buyers can be spending hours sourcing the long tail items in order to save cents, a poor return on investment when CPOs are increasingly pressured to free up resource time to focus on strategic projects.
Paul Harlington, Group Procurement Director at TUI and CPO Advisory Board member, and Molly Dobson, Head of Enterprise Customer Success, Amazon Business UK, will discuss opportunities to simplify procurement, empower the organization, and free up buyer resources through controlled self-service.
Paul will speak openly about the implementation of Amazon Business for self-service at TUI Group, including the benefits gained and lost, the lessons learned, and the opportunities for the future.
A very informative and insightful day. Would highly recommend this event to any progressive procurement professional/organisation- David Golding - Head of Procurement, JLL
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’.
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- Shane Stowells - Sales Director, Tangoe
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
