The Procurious Big Ideas Summit that is scheduled to take place on September 28th in Chicago promises to bring across the pond the same energy and insights as last years event in the UK.
To do this, the organizers have lined up an impressive array of speakers, one of whom will be joining me today.
Over the next 30-minutes, I will be talking with Sibylline CEO Justin Crump, and we will be focusing on the following discussion points;
1. Your bio states that you are the CEO of Sibylline Ltd, which is an international intelligence and risk analysis consultancy based in the UK, and that you have a personal focus on international jihadist terrorism, strategic affairs, military evolution, and intelligence operations worldwide. While I did not see an immediate or direct connection with the procurement world, you will be discussing the disruptive forces headed toward procurement pros in 2017 at the Procurious Big Ideas Summit. So here is the question; how do you link or correlate expertise in jihadist terrorism with procurement?
2. In the past when the subject of disruptive forces and procurement came up, factors such as financial environments, political change, technological advances, socio-cultural change, and environmental fluctuations were usually cited as areas to watch. How do these align with your disruptive forces?
3. Asking the obvious question, what are the disruptive forces about which you will be talking at the Procurious Big Ideas Summit later this month, and what makes them unique to 2017 - or for that matter any particular year?
