This year’s conference kicked off with a keynote address by Duncan Brock, Group Director of CIPS UK. Titled ‘Back to the future of procurement’, his address took a look at what Artificial Intelligence and BlockChain means for procurement professionals. Other topics of discussion included the effects of corruption and unethical behaviour on the countries of the world, making Big Data count, and using current legislative provisions for the growth of small businesses.
More interestingly, the 12th annual Smart Procurement World hosted a series of thought-provoking panel discussions, which catered to the more conversational needs of attendees. One such discussion revolved around attracting and retaining superior talent in one’s company. Moderated by DR Abdul Mahomed, the conversation tackled the importance of behaviour and ‘soft skills’, while answering the all-important question of what skills and experience are currently in most demand.
