Speaker: Yurda Burghardt
Negotiation Advisory Group
The business economist has been involved in purchasing for 20 years. As a senior partner at the leading consultancy for purchasing and supply chain management, Yurda Burghardt gained profound insights into many different purchasing organisations in various industries. Most recently, as Managing Director, she built up the specialised HR consultancy and placed executives and key positions in the field of purchasing and SCM. From a multitude of different client projects, she knows how different positioning and appreciation of purchasing is in organisations and how purchasing has changed in recent years. The discussion about the value proposition of purchasing and its future direction need to be re-discussed and calibrated accordingly.
