09:50 AM - 10:30 AM KEYNOTE INTERVIEW Being Entreprocurial – How can you place the consumer at the heart of your Procurement function?

JJ van der Meer, Partner and Member of Management Group, PA Consulting Group Pascal Gielen, CPO, Thales Christian Voland, Procurement Director MEA, Bunge Martijn Visser, Procurement Director EMEA, Godiva

The world is changing fast – product life cycles are getting shorter and consumers are demanding increased attention to detail. Personalisation and customisation are highly sought after.

While some parts of the business, such as Marketing and Demand Planning, are usually aligned to consumer categories, Procurement has remained stubbornly commodity aligned. This means that they can lose sight of the consumer and the value which Procurement can bring is not realised.

  • How can you best get access to the consumer?
  • To what extent can you use data analytics to understand the consumer?
  • How can you best use consumer information to inform your procurement organisation structure?
