“Procurement & The Brexit Bombshells”

Dr John Glen, Centre for Customised Executive Development, Cranfield University

With Article 50 triggered and the countdown now begun, CIPS Economist John Glen discusses potential impacts on the procurement function of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU in 2019 – both post-Brexit and over the next two years.
