Monday 18th September marks the beginning of PPN's 4th annual Focus Week. There will be a whole week's worth of events, blogs, research, executive interviews and podcasts touching on the key points of change and interest across finance, P2P and procurement, hearing from some of the most respected voices in the industry.
The week starts with the theme of innovation, and will cover interviews with Savita Mace, CPO in the NHS covering the Sussex region and Steve King, Source to Contract Improvement Manager from Sony, who'll be discussing whether we're at risk of robots taking our jobs and the kind of skillsets needed to stop that from happening. During the day there will be a chance to hear from PPN's award winner - Kelly Dawson, winner of the P2P Manager of the Year award, plus a look at how innovative P2P drives growth and stability, as well as a look into Generative AI and what that could mean for finance teams.
Throughout the week the themes will be:
- Monday - Innovation
- Tuesday - Career and Leadership
- Wednesday - Fraud and Risk
- Thursday - Controls and Compliance
- Friday - Future and Digitisation
With rapid change facing finance and procurement departments, PPN have brought together some of the industry's premier thought leaders to shed light on topics as they relate to finance, P2P and procurement such as ESG, Climate Change, the 4-day week, VAT in the Digital Age (ViDA), how to shift your finance function from transactional to strategic, why so many P2P frauds follow the same pattern, what it means to be "Excellent," the global impact of eInvoicing adoption in the US and more.
We're delighted to be supported by some of the most innovative solution providers in the industry, with conversations and insights shared with leaders from Proactis, FISCAL Technologies, APMatching and Ivalua.
