Delta Talks 2021 in association with Procurex National
Public procurement is changing fast. New demands, new rules, a higher profile and an unfamiliar landscape to charter as the UK emerges from the twin challenges of Brexit and COVID-19. It’s a lot to get your head around and there’s not much time to do it.
Hosted every month by Delta eSourcing in association with Procurex National 2021, our free ‘Delta Talks’ webinar series provides clarity, reassurance and straightforward answers to the questions buyers across the public sector are asking. In a complex and changing world, these interactive events are a unique opportunity to gain insight into procurement reform, increase knowledge and develop best practice approaches.
Led by experienced procurement professionals and featuring guest panellists from major buying organisations, these are valuable sessions for anyone involved in procurement strategy and delivery.
Each ‘Delta Talks’ attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the ‘Transforming Public Procurement Green Paper’ report, in addition to the latest edition of our Public Procurement Market Trends Report, which highlights where new opportunities for collaboration are emerging.
