CPO Event - October 2020 22nd October, 2020
Celtic Manor Resort

Event Description

Join CPO's from all across the UK!

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:

  • A full day of leading CPO’s discussing the latest industry trends
  • Workshops, panel discussions & Round table sessions led by visionaries within procurement
  • First-hand case studies on the challenges facing procurement

ALL STAR PANEL: THE FUTURE OF PROCUREMENT

09:30 - 10:10

Procurement – The Digital Revolution

In the future, procurement will run on wholly digital platforms. The potential for digitization is greater in the Procurement function than in many other business areas; it represents a tremendous opportunity for Procurement to establish its role as a key source of competitive advantage in the organisation.

Words from our attendees

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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
