Best & worst practice - by clients & agencies
Procurement ‘toolkit' including e-auctions
Golden Rules and Hints & Tips
Winning with Procurement will impart a real understanding as to what makes Procurement people ‘tick',
and how best to work with them - particularly for new business purposes, and how to ensure that great PR receives the respect and remuneration that it deserves.

Rosie Doggett, RAD Consulting Ltd.
Rosie spent more than two decades as an account handler with agencies such as Publicis, GGT/TBWA, FCB, Saatchi & Saatchi and Borkowski. Her roles included board director, client services director, marketing director and MD.
She ran many pitches and accounts for clients including Boots, Comet, Holsten, Blockbuster, Mercedes Benz, Tiscali, McCain, Virgin Megastores, Bhs and Nurofen. Managing high profile (and often temperamental!) creative directors and sometimes difficult clients was an integral part of the job.
7 years ago Rosie was headhunted to help a large client with their marketing procurement, so jumped ship to client side and set up a marketing procurement consultancy. She works with a number of clients across all sectors including food, finance, automotive, retail, travel, fashion and alcohol - for domestic and global companies. No marketing discipline remains untouched - media, advertising, digital, POS, PR, Sales Promotion and DM.
During those 7 years Procurement has become increasingly involved with marketing budgets and pitches, and their ways of working frequently appear at odds with creative services. Rosie runs a variety of training courses for clients and agencies, including the UK's MAA's ‘Surviving Procurement' course and the EACA's (European industry body) ‘Winning with Procurement' courses. She is a Director of the MAA (Marketing Agencies Assn.), and a member of CIPS (Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply).
