About me section iconAbout me

My Procurement journey continues unabated with my first foray into the management of an entire Procurement team, covering for maternity leave, before sliding sideways to have a greater focus on major IT integration and creating a global supply chain with links to our team out in Shanghai. Still learning day-by-day and there's always good knowledge to come by if you keep your eyes and ears open. Plus, there's always the chance to do some writing on the side for Procurious!
