PA Consulting at ProcureCon 2016

PA Consulting is delighted to sponsor ProcureCon Europe 2016, Europe’s most strategic procurement conference for CPOs and senior procurement executives. Over 200 procurement professionals will gather in Berlin on 8 – 10 November 2016 and PA have a huge amount of activity going on during this time.

Presentation: Procurement, Energy, Innovation

JJ Van der Meer will be speaking on Tuesday 8th November at 9.50am.

Speaker bio: JJ Van der Meer has over 20 years industry experience from global leadership roles in FMCG and Pharmaceutical companies including Unilever, FrieslandCampina and GSK. He was Global VP Procurement for Unilever, and his most recent role before joining PA was Head of Procurement / CPO for GSKs Global Manufacturing Division, responsible for the supply of all materials and services to around 75 factories around the world.

Talk overview: Procurement has a significant contribution to make to up front innovation and growth but this is not always well-recognised. The audience will learn from JJ’s personal experience and PA’s innovation research about entrepreneurial behaviours for Procurement to become Entreprocurial and how those behaviours really make the difference.

2016 Procurement and Innovation report

Natalie Henfrey has been working with our global cross-sector procurement experts to produce our 2016 Procurement and Innovation report. Our results indicate that procurement has not yet found its natural space in innovation and that there is a huge opportunity for it to deliver real value in this area. Copies of the report will be distributed during the event or you may register for one below.

Meet the PA team

Come find the PA stand where JJ, Natalie and the PA team will be delighted to talk further about our report findings.

We will also be running a live vote during the conference to see how Entreprocurial the audience is. All votes receive a ticket for our draw (not open to service providers). Prizes include an iWatch and a “golden ticket” for lunch and a tour of our world-leading technical centre in Cambridge.

You can get a bonus ticket for completing our 2016 Procurement Soft Skills survey – copies will be available at the stand.
