What is it?
The Big Ideas Summit is the world’s first digitally-led think-tank for procurement and supply chain professionals. It is powered by Procurious.
When is it?
30 April 2015. Expect to see most of the action between 09.30 – 17.00 (GMT) However the thought-provoking discussions and lively debate will continue long after, and we’ll also share video footage throughout the month of May on Procurious.
Where is it?
Although the event itself will be held in at a central location in London, due to its digital nature Procurious members will still be able to get involved.
How can I join in?
You’ll need to be a registered member of Procurious – join here for free if you haven’t already. Then simply access the Big Ideas Summit Group page (which can be found here) to soak-up thoughtful opinions, participate in insightful discussion, and share your own Big Ideas with the Procurious community.
We’ll also be live tweeting throughout the day, so make sure you’re following @procurious_ to share and respond to our tweets.
Will it be live-streamed?
Procurious boasts a global audience of 5000+ procurement professionals from more than 100 countries. If we were to cater to all of these timezones, it would be a tough job – so rather than live-streaming (and making you keep awkward hours) we’ll instead share video with those who’ve registered.
I’m on the fence – why should I take part?
We’ve listed 6 of the most-compelling reasons here.
Who are the ‘Influencers’?
The term ‘influencers’ refers to the specially-invited thought-leaders who will be sharing their Big Ideas with the room and you – the Procurious community.
Our experts span the worlds of procurement, technology and social media. There will be CPOs from organisations including: Burberry, NHS, AstraZeneca, Hovis Ltd, and Exchequer Services, media from Spend Matters and Redactive, and experts representing the bleeding-edge of tech. As well as CIPS, McKinsey & Co, The Hackett Group, Jules Goddard from London Business School, and Rio Tinto’s CFO, Chris Lynch.
