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.

A full write-up of the day’s events will appear in the 5 August issue of SM
