Daniel Weise, Managing Director and Partner at BCG attends Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE 2022

During this yea'rs, Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE: The Risk & Resilience Conference, Daniel Weise, Managing Director and Partner at BCG took to the stage on two occasions. 

The first, in a solo keynote where he discussed the upcoming book - Profit from the source: Transform your business by putting suppliers at the core’ - as well as the changing landscape of the procurement function.

“The world is fundamentally changing,” began Weise. “Procurement will change with digitalisation. While the cost of procurement will be the same, teams will be smaller and much more effective as a result, driving greater value from the investment made.”

Watch Weise’s keynote below:

Taking to the stage for a second time, Weise was joined by three others: Geraint John, Vice President of Interos Resilience Lab; David Shepherd, Global Head of Strategic Partners Director and Risk at LSEG; and Scott Birch, Chief Content Officer at BizClik Media Group.

The panellists discussed supply chain risk and resilience, looking at how organisations can improve supply chain visibility, manage known vs. unknown risk, build a ‘risk-aware culture’, create value in the supply chain, and monitor analytics.
