Efficio hosted the CPO Leadership Club dinner at The Savoy on Thursday 9 March 2017 with Martin Baggs, former CEO of Thames Water, as guest speaker.
The evening’s discussion focused on the topic of “The CEO's view of Procurement: strategies to engage the C-Suite”: What a CEO expects from the CPO and what the CPO can do to gain alignment with the CEO, be a better partner with the business, and gain a stronger voice in the C-Suite.
The event began with a champagne reception in the Mikado Room followed by dinner and discussion in the Gondoliers Room. Guests included CPOs and senior procurement professionals from Amey, G4S, The Co-operative Group, AB Foods, Metro Bank, Babcock, Essentra, Willis Towers Watson, and Aggreko. With discussion taking place under Chatham House Rule, guests were able to share challenges and experiences they have had in their organisations.
