The Big Ideas Summit 2015 – the world’s first digitally-led think-tank for procurement and supply chain professionals was held in London in April…and amplified to more than 5000 members of Procurious across 100+ countries.

The event sparked vigorous debate across social media and #BigIdeas2015 was mentioned 759 times in 24 hours (reaching a potential audience of 1m+).

In the first of the panel discussions from the summit, Sigi Osagie, Sarah Trota, Helen Mackenzie and Andrew MacAskill discuss what it means to be an authentic leader in procurement.

From the power of public sector procurement and the figure of the leader clearing the path through the procurement jungle, to the brand of the profession and setting the belief, the discussion created some fascinating points.
