On Wednesday 21st September, we were present at the CIPS Excellence in Procurement Awards and unfortunately, we didn't win in either of the two categories we were nominated in, losing out to two very well-deserved winners.

The Awards

The CIPS Awards are usually a very tough awards to get shortlisted in - let alone win - and the fact that we were finalists in two different categories is testament to the incredible talents we are lucky to have at the LPC. Being nominated alongside huge national and global corporations is a very big achievement and something we should all be proud of.

The Winners

Now, let's talk about the eventual winners. Up first was the category of Best Practice in Supply Chain Integration and the winners were MTN Group for their 'Digitizing Supply Chain Ecosystem' submission. Click here to read all about their incredible work to drive business efficiencies.

Next, in the category of Outstanding People Development Programme the winners were Lloyds Banking Group, for a unique skill uplift programme they conceived to upskill hundreds of staff members. Click here to read all about their winning submission.

Huge congratulations to Lloyds Banking Group, MTN Group and every winner on the night for some of their excellent work. It was most definitely a great evening and one that we will hope to be winners at in the future!
