The Procurement Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive discussion for senior Procurement, Finance, Supply chain, Buying, Sourcing and Merchandising leaders across Asia

Hosted by Coupa Software Inc., the Procurement leaders’ Virtual Roundtable was set up to offer an intimate online forum for procurement leaders from prominent firms across Asia. 

Our discussions are very much inclusive and involve all the wealth of experience from the senior peers.

Building a Resilient and Agile Business

Following years of economic stability and growth, we are now confronted with an unprecedented disruption to global supply chains, consumer behavior, and the free flow of goods, services, and people. Unfortunately, it is certain that the resulting economic disruptions will be felt throughout 2020 and beyond.

Senior business executives, especially in finance and procurement, have the opportunity to lead their organizations through these challenging times, taking action today to thrive in the years to come. The capabilities of company frameworks empower leaders to make the best decisions at the right time, building internal resilience whilst spending smartly and safely. The truly resilient organizations will recover quickly from crises by making the most of unexpected opportunities to gain a competitive edge.

  • How can finance and procurement leaders build a truly resilient company during these uncertain times?
  • Are companies really in control of their current business consumption?
  • What are the main roadblocks when digitalizing finance and procurement departments?
