Capgemini - Sponsor Success Story

Capgemini is a global leader in consulting, technology services and digital transformation, who offer an array of integrated services combining technology.

We spoke to Xander de Jong the Senior Manager - Procurement Transformation Lead at Capgemini Invent to see why they sponsor ProcureCon.

Who: Capgemini

Where: ProcureCon Europe

When: October 2018

What: All star panel, Speaker, Track and Roundtable

Benefits: Excellent way to get ahead of competitors and showcase products making the brand instantly recognizable. The all star panel, roundtable and speaker positions helped to shape the agenda and influenced the discussions of the day.

We sponsor because we want to have a platform to launch our digital procurement research, and we felt that this was a good platform to use because it's still rather small scale, but you have very senior attendees. Therefore we felt that this would be ideal to have a booth, to be able to have a short presentation as part of the plenary session to position the research and position ourselves.

I think that the whole venue and the atmosphere is good. It's not too formal or informal. It hits right where it should hit it.”

“It's a smooth running conference. The all star panel was really great; the preparation put everyone at ease. Meeting everyone before hand, and chatting for 10 minutes went very well. Overall the interaction was great, it wasn’t too structured which meant everyone gave authentic unrehearsed answers. It was good.

My colleague was very positive about the roundtable he ran, he wants to do it again next year because it's very interactive.”
