Get ready to do battle

25 June 2010
We are doing something a little different at SM today, an event we’re calling the “Battle of the Buyers”. We are pitting two teams of seasoned procurement professionals against each other in a test of their sourcing and purchasing skills. These plucky volunteers will be given a limited time to dash round London and try to find a selection of eclectic items (and some surprises) for the best possible deal. And we’ve got judges and cameras going along with them to track their movements and record their progress – to see whether these sourcing specialists sink or swim. Follow the action as it happens on Twitter: twitter.com/steve_bagshaw A full write-up of the day’s events will appear in the 5 August issue of SM.
