Welcome to Chief Procurement Officer Exchange
Moving Beyond Buyers to Strategic Thinkers & Collaborators
The life of the CPO has changed dramatically. The standard procurement tactics of buying and negotiating processes with suppliers is no longer enough to ensure security of supply and drive a competitive edge for the company.
Now is the time for Procurement to advance its relationship with all its stakeholders. To create and sustain true collaborative relationships with suppliers.

Testimonials from Past Attendees
"It was great to meet a company that provides services in an area that we are struggling with and feeling resource constrained."CPO, Mastercard
"I thought it was absolutely outstanding! The agenda was awesome, filled with insight and great presentations. The debates were very meaningful and allowed much time for audience participation.
One new concept that I enjoyed was the brainweave, but I had to leave through a couple of meetings due to the other business meetings scheduled for McKesson. In addition, I thought that the Value Propositions presented by keynote speakers were very instrumental of providing an outlook on current and future strategy.
The food, venue and organization of the meeting was phenomenal! I heard many peers indicate that they thought that the meeting was the best that they had ever experienced. I have been too many forums and this was one of the best in which I attended as well." McKesson Corporation
"Well organized, informative session that covered the real issues and trends - not just those that are academic"MGM Resorts
