I quit my corporate job as a Regional Category Manager because I got frustrated spending 50% of my time on “busy work”

If you ask your team, they’re probably stuck on the exact same hamster wheel!

I’ve been a procurement pro since 2002, working in 5 different countries.

After I started out as an independent consultant, I realised that I needed to grow my brand and network. That’s how I came to start a podcast on digital procurement.

It’s why I’ve never been more inspired and excited about our profession’s future.

Digital procurement has huge potential, and it’s way more affordable than you probably think.

If you’re a mid-market business, you’re best to look beyond clunky, expensive enterprise level suites, as well as consultancies who implement them. They’re not built to serve your needs and budget.

And that’s where I can help you.

I speak to procurement software CEOs each week for The Procuretech Podcast. I’ve seen over 30 demos and I maintain a database of over 200 digital procurement solutions. What’s more, I understand the procurement challenges as a practitioner.

If you’re curious, then I’d like to get to know you and your business’s unique challenges…
