This year’s event engaged procurement and business leaders with peer-to-peer thought leadership sessions, panel presentations, and product deep dives in an online event experience.

Main stage highlights from Amazon Business Reshape 2022 include:

 

Procurement strategies for the c-suite

Strategic sourcing continues to be a leadership priority to drive organisational objectives such as cost reduction, digital transformation, and responsible purchasing. In this keynote session, hear from Shashi Mandapaty, Chief Procurement Officer, Corporate Tier at Johnson & Johnson and Barilla Group’s Purchasing Director for Indirect Materials, Services, Energy, and Investments, Eliano Apicella, as they share how they are using digital purchasing solutions to build supply resiliency, enhance productivity, and promote their strategic purchasing goals.



Meeting business objects with purchasing agility:

Organisations are recalibrating what it means to be both efficient and agile. Hear how Endre Støgård, Global Category Director for Accenture, is using agile procurement processes to adapt decentralised work environments and manage risk exposure while building supplier redundancy.

 

“Amazon’s vast logistics network is certainly a big benefit for Accenture as a truly global workforce that are now disparate in villages, cities and towns all over the world.” 

Endre Støgård, Global Category Director, Accenture

 

Delivering on the digital agenda:

Digitising procurement operations has allowed many organisations to meet sourcing demands, boost productivity, and optimise costs. Join Kuwait Petroleum International’s Chief of IT, Vincenzo Maniaci, as he shares ways to use intelligent procurement, powered by machine learning and analytics, to simplify processes and make better data-driven decisions.



Empowering employees with digital purchasing: 

For businesses of any size, digitalisation is no longer an option. Hear from Darryl Stead, Head of Procurement EMEA for Link Group and Harry Walker, Procurement Manager UK for Busy Bees, on how they are simplifying employee purchasing with a one-stop shopping experience, customised buying policies, and convenient delivery options—all with the familiar purchasing experience of Amazon.



Fostering socially responsible procurement:

Even with environmental and sustainability goals in place, many organisations don’t have effective sourcing strategies or the right technology to purchase more responsibly. Learn how Union Pacific’s General Director of Supplier Diversity and Procurement Operations, Andrea Deichert Oswald, is identifying, sourcing, and tracking spend from credentialed diverse, local, and small businesses, and products with sustainability certifications.


“With Amazon Business, we give our employees access to something that many of them already know how to use. Ultimately, digital procurement streamlines processes and helps employees focus on meeting supplier diversity goals.”

- Andrea Oswald, General Director of Procurement Operations and Supplier Diversity, Union Pacific
