Progressive helps organisations unlock and commercialise new growth opportunities more rapidly than their competition and more effectively than traditional innovation programmes.
The Catalysts Podcast focuses on the key benefits of corporates and startups working together and how these partnerships can become a catalyst for change for the future. In each episode we will discuss a key topic area behind these partnerships with either a startup or a senior corporate stakeholder.
Today's focus area is the 'Role of Procurement' and the pivotal role that it can play in ensuring that the partnership between a start-up and corporate works to it's full potential. Our guest is Tina Fegent, who is a global leader in Marketing Consultancy Procurement and whose clients include Adidas, Age UK, BBC TV Licensing, British Land, Debenhams, Deliveroo, DFS, Dreams, KPMG, Moneysupermarket.com, RNLI, SSE, Selfridges, Vodafone, Yopa, William Hill and John Lewis and Waitrose. In today's show we discuss many areas including, 'Is Procurement misunderstood, does it get a bad rap?' 'What is Procurement's true purpose, why is it important?' and 'What can large Procurement department's do differently when it comes to working with start-ups?'
