Fellows' Events

Our newly expanded portfolio of regular events dedicated to Fellows of CIPS provide an excellent opportunity for you to meet and be inspired with thought provoking discussions on key issues, and to exchange ideas and experiences. 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.

Previous fellows events and details about the CIPS Fellows group are available here.

Bravo Solution

Whatever ‘floats your boat’ there is something for everyone on this fantastic event. From messing about on the river, good food, history, sporting glory and inspirational young people down to networking with your peers this promises to be the highlight of the Fellows Calendar. Once again thanks to the amazing contacts and reach of the Committee combined with the generosity of our sponsors Bravo Solutions, we are able to offer our Fellows the opportunity of a lifetime to enjoy a day not normally available to those outside of the rowing fraternity.

The Leander Club based in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire is the largest and most historic rowing club in the world. It is home to rowing heroes such as Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Matthew Pinsent and James Cracknell and with 111 olympic medals boasts more success than any other club.

Starting with drinks on the lawn overlooking the river (weather permitting) and an opportunity to get to catch up with, and make new contacts the day will be followed by a boat trip down one of the most beautiful stretches of the Thames and a three course lunch with wine served in the Club dining room. Each table will be hosted by a member of the GB team giving you the chance to find out the dedication it takes to be a world class athlete. The day will conclude with an optional guided tour of the club filled with the history of the place including the boathouse and gym.

The day has been deliberately planned for a Friday to enable Fellows and their guests to take the opportunity to stay over in Henley for the weekend and explore the glorious delights of the Thames Valley. Limited accommodation is available at the Leander Club or in a nearby Hotel du Vin and can be booked directly through contacting Sheila Harrington 01491 575782 or visiting http://www.henleyaccommodation.co.uk/
