Keynote 1: The Pertinence of Productivity To Climbing The Value Curve
Einstein himself highlights that ‘time itself may not be all it seems.’ Why do some achieve so much (predicting or acting to create future success) with the same amount of ‘hours’ as others? What do we do with the time we have plays a significant role towards value creation: a pre requisite for success.

keynote 4: Declutter your Communication: Make sure you are not ‘flagged for later’
Decision makers routinely receive north of 200 emails a day and not uncommonly take home hundreds of pages of papers and packs to review and rework each weekend. The same people tell me that if they can’t grasp what a person is asking them very, very quickly, they will flag the email (or paper or pack) for later, and then often take a long time to come back to it. To cut through this clutter as Procurement Professionals wanting to add greater value to our businesses, you must know how to get their attention fast.
