I joined ProcureCon 6 years ago and I kept coming back because of the level of content, the quality of attendees as well as the speakers that are coming to the event
Procurement has been evolving and I think that ProcureCon has been evolving with it.
We're able to discuss specific subjects, relevant to ourselves, rather than just being in a big room having presentations from companies, which can be interesting but in some cases are very repetitive.
When I see ProcureCon from where it started to where the latest sessions were, I see a community that is achieving more from an exchange of information, more high quality discussions and more small groups discussions.
ProcureCon has achieved that over the years, it provides more exchanges, more relevant and niche topics, high quality discussions and the community really appreciates that.
I’ve been participating at ProcureCon in different areas; most recently I have been leading round table discussions. I’ve also been at breakfast briefings and have been also involved in the Women in Procurement Initiative.
The roundtable discussions as well as the breakfast discussions were probably the most valuable activities for me. The quality and the level of interaction are always very intensive and people there are more open to share and discuss their problems because we are in small groups. If you think about it, not everyone wants to express themselves in front of 200 people, but in small group that’s a lot easier and as a result we have a better reaction, with more people keen to speak out.
The event has helped me to increase my network of contacts, it also helps reinforce relationships with colleagues I don’t necessarily meet throughout the year, but meet once a year at ProcureCon.
Being part of this community, you really appreciate the opportunity to visit and re-discuss your challenges, we all have the same issues and challenges, and it’s very helpful to get input from peers on occasions like that.
ProcureCon leads to the right combination of presentation and information exchange, as well as the opportunity for high quality smaller group discussions.
