The second annual ‘Go-To’ Supplier Awards has celebrated the contributions of suppliers that have delivered service excellence or innovative solutions.
The ceremony, held at Barclays’ head office in London, was hosted by Diane Eshleman, former Chief Procurement Officer. The audience also heard from Antony Jenkins, Barclays former Group Chief Executive, and Shawna Butler of the Singularity University.
The event celebrated the contributions of many of our suppliers, with discussion centred around how taking opportunities through disruptive technology; seeking pleasure in problem solving; embracing unexpected innovation; and forging stronger and new partnerships could deliver exponential benefits to both Barclays and wider society as a whole.
Diane said: “The criticality of collaboration and partnership is clear. It is the strength of our relationships with our suppliers that will result in better outcomes and services for our customers, and immense opportunity for our business. Working together we hope to develop more innovation and transformative solutions.”
