Fellows
ZOOM MEETING

Fellows Leaders Lounge - Procurement Post Pandemic - new paradigms or more of the same?


As we come through the pandemic, what lasting changes will we see in procurement? For instance, how will firms balance supply chain “risk and resilience” (more domestic supply maybe) with cost pressures? Will “Procurement with purpose” really take off? And what about people – recruiting, motivating, developing – has anything changed, and will teams remain virtual and dispersed? our speaker Peter Smith FCIPS, Author and MD of Procurement Excellence Ltd will aim to make this very interactive session.
