How will your team thrive in the Era of Change? We live in an environment where sudden disruptions have become part of our daily operations – and while we can’t predict the nature of the next upheaval, we must prepare to face it. 

To meet this challenge it is imperative that procurement fortifies itself, to make agile, strategic working practises the status quo. This too requires a shift, from that of a fixed to a growth mindset.  

We consider the pathway to organisational growth, with workers and managers equipped to take on new and emerging issues which may arise across people, systems and environment. As, while new legislation may affect your entire supply chain and social and environmental targets put pressure on resources, both will require adaptive workforces aided by effective and high-functioning digital systems. 

At our 2023 forum, we are asking the big questions around the varied aspects of effective and sustainable change management; bringing leaders together to discuss how to ensure teams and organisations adapt and thrive, to share knowledge and experience, and establish connections that will support professional excellence. 

 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
