UKUPC - Addressing and mitigating supply risks in challenging times Webinar


On the 25th January NWUPC Members joined Peter Smith MA FCIPS FRSA for the third UKUPC webinar brought to you by NEUPC. The session on 'Addressing and Mitigating Supply Risks in Challenging Times' was a big hit and there were some very interesting and informative points raised by Peter and questions from the audience.

 The 90-minute session covered a range of current challenges that many procurement people and functions are facing including: 
  • Inflation, price, and commercial challenges
  • Supply availability and supply chain resilience
  • Reputational risk and environmental impact
With the procurement industry seeing more supply disruptions and shortages than we have for decades. Meanwhile, inflation is taking off, which brings challenges to everyone, but particularly for organisations where revenue and budgets are also being squeezed.
The webinar provided practical ideas in terms of managing cost, value and risk, with thoughts on how "procurement with purpose" can be meaningful and positive for any organisation. Peter also covered steps that procurement professionals can take away to help their organisations through these unique times.
