Where innovation meets implementation, coming to you live from London

From September 28th-30th, network with C-level executives, gain insight from industry pioneers and walk away with actionable insights that accelerate your career. By the end of the week, we promise you’ll have the skills to solve the world’s most pressing supply chain and procurement challenges. 

Whether you attend virtually or in-person, you’ll strategise how to cope with global disruption, learn from industry pioneers—Charlotte de Brabandt, Technology and Negotiation Speaker at Amazon; Stephen Day, Global Chief Procurement Officer at Kantar; and Amanda Nazareno, Senior Product Manager at Apex Logistics—and walk away with tips, tactics, and tangible connections. 

 

How to Attend

In a COVID-disrupted era, we know that the majority of people would rather avoid travelling for events─why take the risk, right? In response to the continued disruption, BizClik Media Group has decided that Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will offer the best of both worlds through hybrid accessibility. 

That means you and your peers can attend the event in person or virtually ─ with no disadvantages for people who choose not to make the trip to the Tobacco Dock venue. 

 

In-Person

Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will be held at the Tobacco Dock in London, an industry-leading venue that is renowned for delivering world-class events. For attendees’ peace of mind, the venue is working to the government-endorsed AEV All Secure Framework, alongside mia’s AIM Secure and ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, they will ensure that we achieve a COVID-secure environment to facilitate all of your networking needs. 

 

Virtually

Our physical venue is both historic and stunning, but it has no bearing on the information that you and your peers can gain from the event. You can still absorb it all, interact with other attendees, and enjoy the conference experience on your alternative, virtual platform. 

The platform will feature live feeds from all of the stages, as well as virtual networking areas. So, if you want to avoid travel, it’s not a problem! You can still get involved and enjoy the entire experience from the comfort of your own home.

Communications Specialist, Critiqom, secures four-year multi-million-pound agreement for supply of postal services with Scottish Procurement

Critiqom, a Scottish-based communications business, recently announced its ground-breaking multi-million deal, which will see those accessing services through Scottish Procurement given the option to modernise their communications approach. 

By providing an increased amount of choice in communications, the company says it will succeed in ensuring a reduced environmental impact linked to mail production. 

The Opus Trust Communications company, which is accessed by the likes of local authorities, police, universities, central government, and other public sector bodies, insists that choosing a local supplier to aid in enhancing the efficiency of public sector communications would subsequently speed up its goal to go green.

“This is an opportunity to look at the bigger picture and to use our knowledge to accelerate change for public sector organisations in Scotland,” says Director at Critiqom, Gerry Crawley. 

“We know that we can deliver great efficiencies and cost savings by encouraging the public sector in Scotland to adopt a new approach that embraces digital technologies.”

The tender also introduced a second lot, focusing on digital communications and hybrid mail, in an attempt to administer reduced costs for its customers. All services within the framework agreement will also be delivered in-house. 

It seems the overall aim for the deal with Scottish Procurement lies with innovating and modernising the communications sector, resulting in lower prices and an increased focus on sustainability. 

Who is Critiqom?

Based in Bellshill, Scotland, Critiqom supplies omnichannel solutions for companies, businesses, and organisations, all while claiming to provide innovation and drive engagement simultaneously with reducing the costs of its operations. 

Its vision: to become the UK’s multi-channel communication service of choice. But how is it aiming to get there?

Critiqom insists that by spearheading customer communications with partnership and modernisation, they can achieve exceptional levels of service and choice delivered to their clients. By churning out consistently high-quality operations and by generating revenue with an emphasis on sustainability, it intends to achieve the reduced costs in communications that its clients are looking for. 

Why sign the deal now?

Increasingly, more and more companies are being put under pressure to ensure their carbon footprint and sustainable strategies are aligned with, or surpassing, competition in their field. As attention is drawn to the climate and concerns arise over the sustainability of large companies in the future, the majority of businesses are battling with time to decrease their impact on the environment and ensure policies are put into place to show their progress.

Crawley states that, where possible, the company aims to provide as little distance as necessary between manufacturing and the recipient. The tender boldly claims it looks to help steer the direction in which organisations think and showcase how digitalising communications can only serve to benefit the economy and environment on a large scale.
