The eBF Procurement Festival is a rich source of experience and inspiring messages. For example, Mr Martin Zelinka was one of the speakers who made a great impression on the audience, pointing out that in times of turbulent changes we must always be prepared, even if we don’t know exactly what for. Not only for cementing, but also for boosting the position of procurement, there are key factors such as building relationships, critical thinking and self-education. "It is up to us to face the challenges. It is important to recognise both your suppliers and your customers and work hard for each other," he said at the conclusion of his emotional talk.
