Successful partnerships don’t just happen; rather they are reliant upon organisations setting clear foundations for business relationships and nurturing them over time. There are clearly risks and benefits to be had on both sides.

This event will provide best practice guidance, knowledge and insight from a range of leaders with experience in the field.

Speakers will share their experiences on managing strategic partnerships; the associated risks across the supply base when dealing with complex organisations and systems; and examples of how to build effective governance to support a successful relationship.
