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 400 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.

Fascinating visit to the Royal Mint, the Royal Mint Museum and tour. There will be a lecture on the history and workings of the Royal Mint, procurement in the Royal Mint and other ancient sites in Wales, plus a chance to mint your own coin!

"Moneyers" operated in London from c650 with coins of Alfred the Great struck with the name London in the form of a monogram.CPD 2

The Royal Mint has evolved to become a sophisticated industrial concern, which operates today as a government company. The 1,100 years of its existence track the history of Britain through its wars and political upheavals, its social and economic progress, its technological and scientific advances. Its history is, in short, woven into that of Britain itself.

The Royal Mint Museum

The Royal Mint Museum has a collection of British coins of unparalleled importance. It sheds light not just on the coins as issued but also, through a unique collection of trial and experimental pieces, and artwork and equipment, on their design and manufacture.

The Museum celebrated its 200th Anniversary in February 2016, a few months later the Royal Mint Experience was completed, with a major feature being a large exhibition area featuring hundreds of objects from the Museum’s collection.
