If you’re scratching your head at the mere mention of ‘Big Ideas’, then the following primer should get you up to speed: Procurious to host world’s first digitally-led event for procurement professionals.

3. Make Powerful New Contacts Around The Globe
This might sound obvious, but don’t overlook the value of networking with your global peers. Someone out there knows the answer to your most pressing procurement questions. They’ve walked in your shoes… So why not tap into their experience, for free?
The Big Ideas Summit is as much about championing the use of social media as it is the big issues. Maybe you’re new to the community and just joined Procurious, or you might be a long-time member and (until now) been content with standing at the back. It’s not too much of a leap to suggest that by being a ‘Digital Delegate’ you want to be on the top of your game. Whether that be by keeping up with the latest trends, issues, or innovations – chances are your fellow delegates will be hungry to devour and analyse the ideas presented through the day. Procurious will also be on the lookout for those ‘Digital Delegates’ with the biggest, best ideas – and by leveraging our network of thought-leaders we can work together to develop these ideas, introduce influential contacts to your network and help make them a reality.
4. Share Your Own Big Idea

We believe everyone has a unique vantage point in the industries, communities and businesses they work in. So here is an opportunity to get your Big Idea across, and boost your own personal brand. How? Join our Big Ideas Summit Group and make a post to the community feed. We’ll also be keeping a careful eye on Twitter for your Big Ideas, just Tweet us @procurious_ using the hashtag #BigIdeas2015.
5. Access Exclusive Content & Learnings
Expand your knowledge, stay informed, and be inspired through swathes of exclusive content only available to Procurious members. On the day we’ll be updating the Group page with photos from the event, highlights from our sessions, and updates on the discussions.
