February 2017: On Demand Session

On demand of our members we organised a session about Best Value Procurement.  Jeroen Van De Rijt, Dutch expert in BVP, brought a very interesting presentation about the methodology.  BVP requires a completely new way of thinking about procurement.  Instead of telling the suppliers what they should deliver and how, with a lot of detailed specifications, you should listen to them and let them make their best proposal, based on their expertise.

December 2016: Pascion Year End Event

On the 8th of December, Pascion organised its Year End Event in the Atomium in Brussels. With an amazing view over the city of Brussels, the Atomium offered the perfect conditions to look back at the different events which were organised this year and we also revealed to our guests the calendar for 2017.

We had an interview with the winner of the Procurement Excellence Award 2016, Wouter Machiels, who inspired the attendees on why every company should enter their procurement project in 2017. At the same time, Wouter announced that he accepted to join the board of Pascion and that he is eager to contribute his knowledge to the world of procurement and supply chain. Welcome on board Wouter!

We would like to thank everyone for their ‘pascion’ during all of the events this year!  Enjoy the Christmas holidays and hope to see you again in 2017!
