What’s keeping procurement leaders
up at night?

Tuesday 26th January 2021 @ 10am

Preparing for procurement in 2021

Lack of spend visibility, poor budget control, colleagues not using COVID-safe products, supply chain disparity, varying product quality, no tail management…

During a difficult year there are plenty of things keeping procurement leaders up at night.

But as you ready yourself for what will hopefully be a more stable, streamlined and healthier 2021, how do you overcome these challenges, regain control and revert to more strategic decision making?

OfficeTeam is here to help you buy smarter and create a ‘workplace’ fit for the future. So we’ve invited some of the most respected names in senior procurement to join us on Tuesday 26th January 2021, at 10am for this straight-talking virtual roundtable event – and you can put your questions to your peers, live!

Meet our panellists

Leading experts in procurement from various industries across the UK.

Steven Schools

Head of Procurement
Provident Financial Management Services

With 17 years’ strategic procurement experience – including 11 spent in the financial services sector – Steven is responsible for Provident’s entire indirect spend, across all categories and in multiple geographical locations. He heads up a five-strong procurement team, in an organisation with a 100-year history which has – until the outbreak of Covid-19 – relied entirely on a face-to-face business model.

Sunil Bhatt

Head of Procurement
Four Seasons Health Care

With 12 years’ supply chain and procurement experience, Sunil moved from the retail catering sector, into care, in 2014. He joined one of the UK’s largest independent health care providers, and progressed from Procurement Manager to Head of Procurement in February 2020 – just before the Covid-19 outbreak. Alongside his six-strong team, he is responsible for managing Four Seasons’ entire supplier base, from product to strategic performance level.

Paul Kefford

Global Head of Procurement
Halma plc

With 15 years’ procurement experience, Paul has created – and currently leads on – the global procurement projects for all 60 Halma companies, within multiple geographical locations. This senior position sees him manage different stakeholders across Halma’s safety, medical and environmental sectors, to leverage strategic value for everyone within a highly decentralised setting.
