The session will look at the importance of knowing your customers and the associated processes that can be used as part of the procurement process on an ongoing basis and will features guest speakers:

  • Andy Rayner - CTO Nevion
  • Mark Fisher - Procurement, East Suffolk Council
  • Darren Lewis - Head of BT Accelerator

This follows the success of a previous knowledge sharing event, titled ‘Company Credibility – Smoke and mirrors or the real deal?’ held in February, which provided attendees with an overview over key issues faced by anyone planning to build a public image for their company and establish confidence in potential customers and partners.
