The Procurement Show takes a different approach to the subject of procurement. Hosted by procurement expert Jonathan O'Brien, it's the show that tackles the topics we all need to think about and sets out to explore the more interesting bits of procurement.
Powering Procurement for the Future
In this episode, Jonathan and Paul are joined by Andy Martyr-Icke, who leads the environment team at National Grid - the organisation responsible for electricity distribution in the UK. They discuss what procurement teams should be looking out for in the future with regards to power, electric vehicles, sustainability and those businesses claiming to have net zero targets.
Sustainable Procurement in a Creative Industry
In this episode, Jonathan O'Brien and Paul Philpott are joined by Annabel Kaur-Barry, who leads digital and production procurement, for Interpublic Group - one of the 'big four' advertising agencies globally. They discuss how sustainability might apply when what is being sourced is less physical and not as tangible in the world of creative procurement.
The Coming Food Crisis
Jonathan and Paul discuss the coming food crisis, following a recent article in The Economist. We look at what the crisis actually means for all of us, and what procurement functions should be doing to find their way through the challenging months and years ahead.
