Thank You Procurement!
You’ve had supply chain disruptions, some closures, a reduced workforce, and new telecommuting policies to deal with – and yet you’ve risen to the occasion, with guts and heart, and working around the clock to find a way for our goods to arrive. You are an inspiration. All of you.
We can’t wait until we’re back in a room, hearing your stories of drive, purpose, pride, and innovation.In the meantime, please look after yourselves, keep washing your hands and phoning your loved ones. We look forward to gathering with you again when it is safe to do so.
With huge thanks, and best wishes,
