We wanted to ensure the forum was accessible for all in the private sector and we understood how much people wanted to get back to networking and even though the Covid-19 crisis has changed the way we network in a live capacity, we were still able to do this virtually!

The Virtual Forum took place on 27-28 April 2021, dedicated to giving private sector procurement professionals insight and advice. The forum is an ideal opportunity to better your procurement knowledge.

Technology is synonymous with progress, however, we can’t roll out a new resource then rest on our laurels. As with any other part of the business technology needs to be put to work and the degree of success depends on your ability to fully understand and leverage that potential. 

Join us at the Supply Management Private Sector Forum - Transforming Procurement in the Digital Age on 27-28 April where we will explore the digital tools that underpin the future of procurement and supply chain management. 

From key challenges around risk and deep insights to talent retention, and gaining the most from digital intelligence and monitoring, it will be an opportunity for knowledge sharing and networking with experts in the field. We look forward to seeing you there. 

Ceri Jones, Editor, Supply Management
