Find Businesses to partner with & develop collaborative working

25 April 2024, 10:00 AM

We're putting on this event dedicated to meeting other businesses who are also exploring collaborative working.

We'll give an overview of the things you might want to consider leading up to becoming ‘contract ready’ in a partnership and we'll explore what the key areas of focus are for businesses wanting to work together to secure work in the public sector.

We’ll explore what the make or break elements are of preparing to work with others.

This highly interactive workshop will be an opportunity for businesses to meet, greet, exchange details and explore how to form new working relationships. Come along and introduce yourself and your business and hopefully you can find new contacts and connections for future work.

We'll be talking about Supplier Diversity. it's such an important topic and we want to get everyone not just talking about it but taking action. This event can be attended by both buyers and suppliers keen to chat about supplier diversity, about both the challenges and the opportunities.

We're delighted to be joined by Krystle Sands, Head of Supplier Diversity for Meta for the EMEA Region who will talk us through what they are doing to transform supplier diversity. Meta's goal is to create opportunities for diverse-owned companies to do business with Meta, and the people and communities that Meta connects.
