We’re throwing open the doors to the world’s first digitally-led conference for the procurement profession – Procurious Big Ideas Summit 2015.
Planned as a unique think tank event, our Big Ideas Summit will draw on 40 of the world brightest minds from established thought-leaders, senior business leaders and commentators to discuss outside-of-the-box cost solutions.
What’s the Big Idea behind it?
The aim of Big Ideas is to inspire a new generation of business intrapreneurs to drive innovation and change in large organisations. Structured around three topics – RISK, PEOPLE and TECHNOLOGY, the event aims to change the world’s mind about cost and tease out solutions which will drive competitive advantage, agility in unstable markets and long term value for organisations.
The face-to-face component of the event will take place in London on 30 April 2015, however, with ideas and content amplified through Procurious, we’re welcoming more than 4,500 procurement professionals from across the globe to submit questions to speakers in advance as well as tune in, learn and participate in real time.
Who will be speaking?
We’ve secured a high calibre of thought leaders and keynote speakers, including:
- David Noble, Group CEO, CIPS
- Chris Sawchuk, Principal and Global Procurement Advisory Practice Leader, The Hackett Group
- Professor Jules Goddard, London School of Business
- Professor Olinga Ta’eed, Director Centre of Citizenship, Enterprise & Governance

Why take part?
As savvy social networkers you’ll already be of the mind that social media can be used to create a global stir. We want to amplify these Big Ideas throughout the global procurement community, connect with one another, start meaningful conversations, and ultimately drive change.
All keynote sessions will be captured on film and offered exclusively to registered attendees. As a ‘digital delegate’ you’ll also be able to access a rich collection of supporting material including; articles, interviews and video content post 30 April.
Who’s sponsoring it?
For an event that explores the biggest trends impacting procurement we thought it only necessary to bring onboard similarly hot-ticket sponsors. The Big Ideas Summit 2015 is proud to be sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) and The Hackett Group.
