The last two years have represented a weird, once-in-a-lifetime period for most of us.  But it’s clear that 2022 is going to be a critical year for many organisations, and the expectations of top management in terms of procurement professionals and functions have never been greater.

In this webinar, Peter Smith will provide his views of the ten biggest priorities for procurement in 2022, with some practical advice about how we can address these issues effectively and successfully.

Peter will explore:

  • The challenges of inflation, supply chain constraints and geo-political on procurement and how to address them..
  • The positive opportunities for procurement to contribute strategically and step up to huge environmental, social and economic issues.
  • The daunting, but exciting “procurement with purpose” paradigm

Peter started his procurement career at Mars Confectionery, then was Procurement Director for Dun & Bradstreet Europe, the Department of Social Security, and the NatWest Group.

He is a Fellow and was 2003 President of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS), and has served as a non-executive director of two large public sector organisations and a growing private firm.

From 2010 - 18 he was Managing Editor of the Spend Matters UK / Europe website, read by thousands of procurement professionals every day. Penguin Business recently published his latest book in October 2020. 'Bad Buying – How Organisations Waste Billions Through Failures, Frauds and F*ck-ups' which lifts the lid on some amazing global stories of disaster in the business world.

He founded the Procurement with Purpose movement and website with Mark Perera in 2019, and his next book, due later in 2021, will focus on that topic.
