Procurious’ annual Big Ideas Summit invites global procurement professionals to connect, collaborate and expand their thinking with fresh perspectives from top global speakers.

London, UK – February 18, 2020 – Corcentric is Proud sponsor of Procurious’ annual Big Ideas Summit. Hosted in London on Tuesday 11 March, this year’s Big Ideas Summit is set to fire up brain cells, spark vigorous discussions and crowd-source ideas for the future of the procurement profession.

The London event features Rugby World Cup Winning Head Coach and former Olympic Team GB Director of Sport, Sir Clive Woodward OBE, speaking on why talent is never enough, while award-winning journalist and author David Adam will delve into ‘Smart Pills’ – what are they and should we be using them?

Joining these top speakers will be Determine’s Northern Europe Business Development Director  Philippe de Grossouvre and Corcentric’s Senior Director of Global Services and Delivery, Diego De La Garza, exploring what a Chief Procurement officer of 2070 will look like.

“How far in the future can you see of where Procurement is going? 2030 / 2040 / 2050 / 2070 ? What type of value will be delivered by Procurement when there are no more savings to be made? In an age of information overload, what trends will have an impact on the Procurement function during the next decades? We’re thrilled to be part of the Big Ideas Summit’s speakers panel and to discuss with you what the CPO of the future could look like and sketch with you the future of the function.”
