  • Symposium 2022 Round Up


The industry continues to enjoy exponential growth as companies continue to embrace new technologies and services to transform their business processes and operations. But how will this play out against the backdrop of an impending recession, the geo-political situation and on-going talent crisis? And then there’s the all-important ESG agenda as we consider the future of not just the industry, but the planet and the people within it.

The GSA’s annual Symposium, with the theme of Sustainable Resilience, took a laser-focus view on our changing industry and provided thought leadership and best practice to guide the industry through the clear opportunities and many challenges that lie ahead. The Symposium also culminated the work of the GSA throughout the year and delivered thought leadership through keynotes from industry leaders, panel discussions, launches of GSA best practice guides, fireside chats and more.

We took a look at topics including:

  • agile sourcing
  • socially responsible procurement
  • ESG and contracting for sustainability
  • supplier diversity
  • ethics when contracting for technologies
  • attracting new talent and retaining existing talent
  • open talent
  • impact sourcing
  • industry standardisation

The GSA would like to thank executive member DLA Piper for hosting the symposium in their client suites in Aldersgate.
