The event will be hosted at the Oxford and Cambridge Club at 71 Pall Mall, meeting in the Drawing and Dining Rooms of the former Schomberg House, home to Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Helena, and her husband Prince Christian, and subsequently to their daughters Princesses Marie Louise and Helena Victoria. The rooms retain their decoration, carried out in 1862-3 by T.H. Wyatt, and provide a rare surviving experience of Victorian high society life.
This event allows Fellows to experience the past – soaking up the feel of a soirée in a Victorian princess’ home – whilst reflecting on a very different future which lies ahead.
The rate of technological change is accelerating and the force of its impact on procurement will increase.
One of Britain’s most renowned technologists, Prof Jim Norton, will explain how logarithmic growth in processing power will dramatically alter the role of computing and robotics in business, and Stuart Brocklehurst, Chief Executive of CIPS’ Knowledge Partner Applegate, will place this in the context of developing trends in procurement.
The cost to attend this event is £15.00 inclusive of vat which will be added at the end of the booking process.
Afternoon tea will be provided on arrival with refreshments following the presentation.
The dress code for the event is jacket and tie.
