The Procurious Career Boot Camp, sponsored by Michael Page Procurement and Supply Chain, is a global professional development event for procurement and supply chain professionals. The 2017 series, featuring five, fifteen-minute podcasts will be hosted on Procurious.com and has been designed to help the most ambitious professionals amongst you to upgrade your skill-set.
The series will run for one working week with a daily podcast released on Procurious each day, which you can access via the Procurious eLearning hub. Featuring tips, insights and guidance from the best in the business, each of our five CPOs will dedicate their week to coaching you on becoming the best procurement leader you can be! Each daily podcast will be accompanied by a blog from our speakers and there’ll be vibrant group discussions aplenty on Procurious.com.
Starting on the 4th September, the Career Boot Camp will run for five working days. The podcasts will be accompanied by daily blogs from our “Career Coaches” and group discussions and articles on Procurious.com. When the series is complete, all five podcasts will be available via the Procurious eLearning hub, FREE of charge.
