Andrew Neil is after-dinner speaker

1 March 2017

On the night of the Spring Budget, political pundit and host of This Week will speak at the CIPS Annual Dinner

Guests at the CIPS Annual Dinner this year can expect to be treated to some irreverent political commentary – with the former Sunday Times editor Andrew Neil taking the stage, after a day analysing the newly published Spring Budget from chancellor Philip Hammond.

Neil, the no-nonsense presenter of the BBC’s This Week, Sunday Politics and Daily Politics, is known for bringing his dry wit and incisive take on politics and politicians.

A former UK editor of The Economist and The Scotsman and former executive chair of Sky Television, Neil is a versatile opinion leader, who continues to cover events in the UK political scene.

Neil will present to an expected audience of 300 guests at the prestigious CIPS networking dinner, and follows on from adventurer Levison Wood who, last year, regaled procurement professionals about the importance of ethical supply chains and sustainability.

The event is being hosted at 8 Northumberland Avenue in London on Wednesday 8 March and is an opportunity for procurement teams to celebrate the best the profession has to offer, and the chance to make new connections.
