Post-Conference Workshop: Thursday, 27 February 2020

Ensuring supplier integrity, transparency and sustainability is a critical task an organisation has to go through not just during the contracting and selection phase but also with existing suppliers on a continuous basis. With advanced supplier management tools and practices in place, an organisation can safeguard their own image and supply network, both of which have financial and non financial impacts.

The workshop will enlighten the audience with best practices to ensure the highest level of transparency and compliance and how organisations can ensure a rigid, efficient and a risk managed supplier network

The published programme is correct at time of printing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This is always regrettable, and we will always try to replace the speaker with a speaker with equivalent insight.
