ABOUT

Procurement Leaders’ Summit

The pandemic has propelled procurement’s contribution to growth, innovation and transformation like never before. But how do leaders maintain the momentum and make strategic decisions that deliver sustainable and resilient growth?
Find answers to this question and many more at the 2021 Procurement Leaders Summit
The global pandemic has caused a temporary disruption of supply flows and a fundamental shift towards localization of supply and diversification of suppliers, where ever economically possible. After a year and a half of living with a pandemic, we should congratulate ourselves on successfully adapting to the new reality. But as we emerge from the pandemic, new challenges await, brought upon us by the inevitable global economic crisis.
