Evolving regulatory pressures, declining budgets and rising customer expectations coupled with the uncertainty of an impending Brexit future are putting procurement and supply chain teams in the hot seat. They must show transparent approaches to delivering long-term solutions that simultaneously mitigate risk, deliver innovation, promote national productivity and demonstrate value for money.

The Utility Week Procurement and Supply Chain Engagement Conference, which takes place in Birmingham on 11 May 2017, looks to prepare procurement professionals for the regulator’s direction of travel, and share best practice on how to balance cost, risk and the need to innovate to meet long-term challenges in a sustainable way.

This CPD-certified conference will equip you with the tools to:

  • Adapt your strategy to prepare for enhanced regulatory pressure and uncertainty
  • Balance cost and customer considerations to deliver value for money
  • Unlock innovation within your supply chain and move towards a shared risk model
  • Mitigate the impacts of big projects on procurement
