A roadmap for purpose, growth and opportunity

It’s clear that procurement has a position of influence which can be used to introduce real purpose-based strategies.

With the new era of Total Procurement upon us and purpose being a north star and key driver of success, CPOs and their teams must bring creativity and imagination to drive commercial success with purpose.

Join us in May 2023 to debate these issues with a global group of peers and thought leaders to find new approaches that facilitate purpose driven, long lasting & meaningful change.

Passion. Storytelling. Grit.
