Held in exclusive and stylish venues, the events are designed to be interactive and to encourage learning, discussion and debate through presentations by senior procurement leaders, opportunities to build contacts, and restaurant dining.

Our active and growing Fellows’ LinkedIn group has over 300 members and is open to all Fellows. This essential networking tool can help you to engage with senior procurement professionals online, sharing knowledge, insights and opportunities.

CPD 2

Nigel Crutchley lost his nine-year-old son Ben to brain cancer in 2012. Out of this profound tragedy, Nigel, his family and his colleagues are on a mission to raise £1 million for cancer charity CLIC Sargent in Ben’s memory. Nigel’s Insite Message.

As part of this mission Nigel has made the inspiring decision to share his personal experience with other leaders and how he applied that to his leadership style as CPO at the Royal Bank of Scotland.

Through the benefit of hindsight Nigel’s journey covers 4 main themes:

1.       Making every second count – How a different environment can change what you can achieve
2.       Motivation – How to turn the impossible into the possible
3.       Accessing your ability and enabling others when all around you is dark
4.       Changing your focus to achieve your goals

This is likely to be a heartfelt and emotional session with a real opportunity for Fellows to see how they can apply Nigel’s approaches to a less serious situation and potentially share your own stories should you wish.

The presentation will start at 6.30pm and last approximately 1 hour, after which there will be networking and drinks.  Approximately half of the ticket price will go towards CLIC Sargent and you’ll be able to make further donations on the night should you wish.

This event is being kindly supported by Lorien Resourcing.

The cost to attend the event is £30.00 inclusive of VAT which will be charged on completion of the booking process.
