… that’s how we heard it described by one delegate as we were (snooping) accidentally listening. ‘I’m sure I could be doing other things, he said, but I can’t think what they might be.’ Which we took to be that he’d had a good day.
eWorld Procurement and Supply yesterday was probably busier than we’ve ever seen it – the new venue of the Connaught Rooms at the DeVere on Great Queen Street was more intimate than the QEII but worked very well – plenty of opportunity to assemble in the exhibition hall without being far from the main action, and plenty of places to sit and work too – which makes a change at these events.
If you didn’t manage to get there, here’s a quick roundup of what we heard and we’ll cover more in detail next week. The keynote was delivered by Michelle Baker of KPN, we interviewed her recently and you can read what she told us here. As we expected she delivered a well thought-out and interesting speech, it was standing room only and went down very well. She talked a bit more about what we covered in the interview but with added emphasis on collaboration and motivation. She talked about the journey she has travelled from analogue to digital in her career, and the challenges she’s seen when trying to get people to perform in the face of language and culture barriers.
