TTA attends ‘In-procurement Live’ event in York

TTA, one of the North West’s leading logistics training organisations were delighted to attend the recent In-tend ‘In-procurement live’ event. TTA Directors, David Coupe and Rachael Scanlin, represented the company on the day. The networking and collaboration event, which brought together a host of like-minded buyers and suppliers and a fantastic array of guest speakers, was held at the Principal Hotel in the historic city of York on March 28th. As was to be expected, the event was very well supported by a wide range of exhibitors and suppliers.

The ‘In-procurement Live’ event was organised and delivered by In-tend Limited, a subsidiary company of the University of Sheffield. In-tend are a leading provider of e-procurement solutions to the public and private sector, with over 400 organisations like Universities, Councils, Colleges, Housing Associations, the NHS, Parliament and Emergency services, and thousands of suppliers accessing the tendering solution worldwide.

The purpose of ‘In-procurement live’ is to provide a platform for suppliers to raise the profile of their business within the public sector. By exhibiting and showcasing their products, suppliers are able to market their goods and services to a range of public sector buyers.

A panel of excellent speakers from a wide range of bodies, spoke on a range of topical seminars from sustainability in the tertiary education sector, social accountability and the ethical code of conduct and planning and environmental procurement, to digital marketing and advertising, strategy and programme delivery and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The speakers at ‘In-procurement live’ included:

Sheri-Leigh Miles: Co-Founding Director, Net Positive Futures

Hena Jamshed: Director, GSUK

James Neill: Landmark Chambers

Cliff Fox: Chief Operating Officer, Pure Technology Group

Aisling Green: Marketing Manager, The Security Company Limited

Speaking after the event, TTA Director, Rachael Scanlin said:

“David and I were delighted to attend the ‘In-procurement live’ event on behalf of TTA. All of the speakers were interesting, and a great deal of what they all said was very enlightening and thought-provoking. I was particularly interested by Cliff Fox’s seminar on GDPR. The new mutually-agreed European General Data Protection Regulation will soon come into force – May 25th, 2018 – and will change how businesses and public sector organisations handle their customers’ information data. It was good to get the views of experts in the field in light of the fundamental changes that we will soon have to comply and deal with.”
