Series top scorers awarded 10,000AED toward procurement based training
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Wednesday, December 23rd 2015 [ME NewsWire]
Strategic sourcing company Tejari, together with CIPS MENA launched the 2015 series of expert briefings in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi this year. The series tailored exclusively for mid to senior-level procurement executives offers a programme of eight expert briefings focused on real world, practical experience delivered by purchasing and supply chain expert Guy Allen, and Peter Smith, Managing Director of Spend Matters UK/Europe.
In conjunction with the series, Tejari offered participants the chance to win the 2015 Real World Sourcing Scholarship for use towards procurement specific training. To qualify for the scholarship, participants were asked to complete online certifications following each briefing, this reinforcing Tejari’s efforts to support education in the region. The top ten scorers across the series gathered over two days alongside Tejari and CIPS MENA representatives to hear the winners of the 10,000AED scholarship fund.
After a close finish, Yousef Dar Ibaid of Emirates Falcon Electromechanical Company was named 2015 Dubai Real World Sourcing Scholarship winner and was presented with the cheque of 10,000AED. The winner said “As a winner also, I would like to thank Tejari and CIPS for this valuable award and scholarship opportunity granted to support and develop my knowledge and qualifications in procurement and supply chain management.” The Abu Dhabi winner of the 2015 Real World Sourcing Scholarship was announced last night and went to Chinedum Ikeagu of Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Ltd (GASCO). The winner said “Winning the award inspires hope in me as I look into the future to see the profession as a fully licensed practice, particularly in public procurement where ‘system sanitization’ is needed especially in developing and third world countries”.
The Real World Sourcing series will return next year under the new name of The Real World Procurement Series with brand new topics to choose from.
