Clubhouse offers the simplicity of listening to live conversations between thought leaders on topics none of us have easy answers to.
This couldn’t be more true for the world of procurement. Whether leaders are tasked with building more resilience into their supply chain, simply surviving the pandemic or transforming their organisation to be more sustainable, there’s no doubt they can’t do it alone. And because of this, business leaders are reimagining the role procurement plays in business strategy and transformation. There are already some fantastic figureheads in procurement who have built their profile on Clubhouse to share their experiences, have fascinating conversations and start the movement for reimagining procurement. We’ve created this list as a guide to who you should be following on Clubhouse to embed your procurement knowledge with a variety of rich conversations.

Matthias Gutzmann (@matthiasdpw)
Founder, Digital Procurement World
Matthias is an aficionado when it comes to digital procurement and exploring platforms to bring the procurement community together. He started Digital Procurement World because he was frustrated by the state of conferences for procurement: prohibitively expensive, no investor presence and they failed to attract an audience of startup businesses. So, whilst he’s on his mission to drive digital procurement and innovation, we have no doubt he’ll bring a lot to the table when it comes to Clubhouse.

Nandini Basuthakur (@nandinibasu)
CEO, Procurement Leaders
This list wouldn’t be worth a thing if we didn’t include Nandini Basuthakur. And, to be frank, the Clubhouse procurement community wouldn’t have the potential it does without leaders like her taking an interest in it. As the CEO of Procurement Leaders, she knows a thing or two about building deep knowledge and how to share those. Might there be a Clubhouse Procurement Leaders group soon? Time will tell, but in the meantime, we’ll settle for some of the rich insights that Nandini might share in our existing sessions.

#procurementtransformation #thoughtleader #suppliercollaboration
It’s when you start creating a list like this that you realise what a rich community of founders, investors, expert practitioners and thought leaders exists in Procurement. And we’re firm believers that it’s a platform like Clubhouse that will bring the procurement community together to ignite collaboration and innovation that will drive the transformation we want to see towards purposeful procurement practices. We’re looking forward to updating this list every quarter as Clubhouse grows and we welcome new procurement individuals to the space!
P.S. Look out for our Thursday afternoon sessions on Reimagining Procurement.
