The Grand Category Debate

Thursday, June 21, 2018 6:00 PM (1 day(s)), Basel, Switzerland

CPD 2This is the arena for procurement categories to argue their case of attention, resources and, yes, their very existence.

Leading practitioners, each representing one category, will attempt to impress, charm or bully you into making them the survivor.

Setting the scene for this gladiatorial contest, we are honoured and delighted to have Wolfgang Rauch, Group CPO of Novartis.

Anything goes. There are no rules of fair play. And the tragic show-down will be decided only by you, the audience

Will this be a procurement masterclass or a painful melodrama?

Whatever…networking afterwards should be lively
