“After three years as a Startup, this year we are represented as a full partner at the Procurement Summit for the first time – and on stage three times. I am particularly looking forward to my dialog with Franziska Seewald about the Procurement of Consulting Services on 22 June.“Gregory N. Vider, Co-founder of apadua.
Meet the makers: What is expecting you there
We are very pleased to be represented three times in this year’s Procurement Summit program. Be prepared for the cumulative load of apadua paired with valuable insights from and with our two founders Gregory and Markus:
1. Video killed the key account star – A provocative dialogue about the procurement of Consulting Services with Dr. Franziska Seewald (Siemens) & Gregory
22.06.2022 | 15:00 CET | Stage Masterclasses 2
Management Consultants used to seal deals with C-level big shots on driving ranges and fancy skiing slopes. For many years Procurement simply had to swallow these executive selling cases. Then digitalization and the Pandemic changed many things we thought we knew. In today’s world: How do Senior Partner Key Accounts maintain their relationship with Management Boards and (finally) even Procurement? How do tender processes and pitches unfold in the remote environment? And just how smart is it really to negotiate the final price against a camera?
Dr. Franziska Seewald (Siemens) and Gregory N. Vider (apadua) explore these and other pointed questions in their Masterclass that is being held as a top-secret fireside chat. New Normal Reloaded. All killer, no filler. Please bring your seats in an upright position. All tricky questions highly welcome. Summit-Life the way it should be!
Jeopardy: Professional Services Edition – What you always wanted to know about the procurement of Professional Services – but you’ve never dared to ask out loud.
23.06.2022 | 13:30 CET | Stage Masterclasses 2
Every profession has its myths. Procurement is no exception. Many of these misconceptions have been passed from generation to generation. Time to demystify – according to Markus and Gregory. Once started and socialized in purchasing, the two founders of apadua are equally bound by their many years of experience in Management Consulting. They speak the language of procurement and know the challenges in working with Professional Services Firms.
In this interactive masterclass, these procuretech entrepreneurs take up a game show classic. Provocatively formulated statements of procurement basics of Professional Services invite you to participate and to get in touch with the ‘showmasters’. In this protected area, you may and should ask all the questions that you would otherwise not dare to ask out loud. Get ready for a very special masterclass.
Corporate meets Startup – What and how Corporates and Procuretech Startups can learn from each other.
22.06.2022 | 16:45 CET | Main Stage
Moderated by Philipp Weber (White Label Advisory), Lukas Warwla (Archlet), Florian Körner (MBition) and Gregory will discuss how collaboration between Startups and Corporations can help both sides. Furthermore, it will be about finding out what they can learn from each other.
