The Solvint Procurement Academy would like to invite you for a unique 2 day Procurement Excellence Event on November 19/20, 2018.

With this event we want to bring together a select group of Procurement professionals from leading companies from different industries to share and discuss the latest developments in our profession.

We will focus on 4 key areas that drive the development of the Procurement function.

  Digitalisation - Enabling the digital transformation of Procurement

  • How will 'new technology' impact the role & responsibilities of Procurement?

  • What can Procurement do to be at the forefront of digitalisation?

  People development - Shaping the future of the Procurement professional 

  • What are the key skills of the Procurement professional in 2020-2025?

  • What can organisations do to create high performing and agile teams?

  Innovation - From buzzword to tangible impact

  • How can innovation be made tangible and drive enterprise wide performance?

  • How should Procurement innovate to become an enabler for the entire organisation?

  Collaboration - Driving end-to-end value

  • How to build sustainable relationships with key suppliers, whilst reducing cost, driving growth and managing supply chain risks?

  • How can Procurement become a true business partner, driving impact?

During the 2 days, we will facilitate several workshops on these 4 key areas to allow for ample sharing and discussion amongst the participants. These workshops will be facilitated by Professor Dr. Frank Rozemeijer of Maastricht University in The Netherlands. Next to holding the NEVI Chair in Purchasing & Supply Chain Management, Frank advices several senior executives in Europe in further developing their Procurement & Supply Chain functions. Co-facilitator will be Manu Matthyssens, founder and Managing Partner of the Solvint Group.

During the 2 days, several senior leaders from industry will join to share their perspectives, including Geert Van Acker, Vice President Strategic Growth Initiatives at Lonza, and Raffaele Muscetta, Group Vice President Supply Chain Management at ABB.
