Halloween is special for many reasons, and this year there is one more – it is the day of the CIPS UK Conference.
The agenda is complete, the speakers are ready, and there are just a few places left for those who want to hear first hand from CPOs and leaders in the profession about the most vital procurement topics of the moment.
The conference takes place on Wednesday 31 October, at QEII Centre, London.
It is an opportunity to meet the new Group CEO of CIPS, Malcolm Harrison FCIPS, who will open the conference. Harrison’s expertise in procurement covers public and private sector, packaging and pet food, and more.
CIPS chief economist John Glen will discuss the current economic landscape and how it may affect the profession, and a panel of experts will follow with a debate on how to manage the unknown and find security in unstable times.
As well as senior procurement professionals sharing their knowledge and views on topics such as how to keep procurement at the heart of business strategy and the business advantages of socially responsible procurement, hear from a professional hacker – a technology expert who can break into your IT systems and connected technology to show the business weaknesses.
And for those interested in technology, people or resilient supply chians, there is a separate stream through the day dedicated to these topics.
