It’s a new year and a new opportunity to get things with your business progressing! And what could be more useful then the return of our flagship event Doing Business with Big Business?

Doing Business with Big Business is our event where you’ll be learning all about procurement directly from major brands, so you can get a more complete understanding about what they’re looking for and the best ways to approach them. It’s a brilliant way to gain more insight into the often-mysterious world of procurement, meet other entrepreneurs in your position, and to assess whether your business is ready to take the step of working with big business.

This time we’re proud to announce that we have buyers attending from John Lewis, Tesco, Wholegood, Gategroup, Virgin Trains East coast, and the founder of Tickeat.

Doing Business with Big Business

From John Lewis we have the Senior Beauty and Fragrance Buyer, whose extremely impressive experience includes leading on a flagship new stores and refurbishment programme, as well as securing major brands such as Marc Jacobs and Charlotte Tilbury. The buyer has previously held roles at other major household brands, including Head of Product Development and Product and Merchandising Manager.

From Wholegood, a London-based food and beverage wholesaler, we have the Head of Brands and Sales. Wholegood has been supplying organic fruit and veg to hundreds of accounts since 2008, and the role of the Head of Brands and Sales is to hand-pick quality brands that complement the existing portfolio. With over 13 years of experience in branded beverage sales and operations across a range of companies, from SMEs to global giants, it’s an exciting opportunity to gain insight into a range of procurement environments.

We’re very excited about this event - it’s shaping up to be a special one indeed. Get your tickets now and join us for a day of learning, networking, and benefitting from exclusive information that will help you grow your business.
