Description


On Tuesday 20th June 2017, Odesma will be hosting their inaugural conference at the Churchill War Rooms in London.

The event, entitled “Making procurement transformation deliver” will see senior procurement professionals come together to discover how they can re-imagine their procurement function and the tools available to help them.

In addition, delegates will be able to hear from professional Triathlete Harry Wiltshire on how the positive growth mindset he uses to train can be applied in everyday business life.

All guests will have the opportunity to look round the famous Churchill War rooms museum as well as network with other senior procurement professionals. The day is set to be informative and enjoyable.

We will be presenting the results of our “Effects of Brexit on Procurement” Survey. To take part in this survey click here.
