Procurement has transformed vastly over recent years. Gone are the days when managers employed primarily financial tools, as they now favour a range of technical and soft skills to support businesses like never before. With this in mind we wanted to bring you a forum to help guide tomorrow's leaders with a deeper understanding of this evolving world of procurement. 

Businesses are now looking to procurement for guidance, creative strategies, and to take a stance on broader issues which affect relationships with suppliers and the public. Tomorrow’s leaders will need a deep understanding of social and technological issues, to be experts in cyber risk, masters of inclusive and diverse relationships, and to be visibly championing responsible practices - all while maintaining the expertise which sits at the core of the profession. 

At our 2023 forum, we will discuss the new and increasingly important issues professionals face, and the need to embrace disruption and share ideas on how to use change as an opportunity followed by a drinks reception.

 CIPS members qualifed for 7 CPD points by attending this event.


"It's a real pleasure to welcome you to this year's Supply Management Forum 2023. At this live event you will be able to connect with colleagues and peers, and share knowledge on how you have overcome common challenges and plans to address emerging social issues.

A fundamental part of this journey is leadership, and the forum will provide a platform to discuss the issues our future leaders will face and the skills required to achieve this. It's sure to be an enlightening experience and I look forward to joining you there in person."

Ceri Jones, Editor, Supply Management
