Hi ##Name##,

In the November 2018 edition of Bespoke Bulletin, we speak to the CPO of MTN Group, Dirk Karl, about his achievements to date and his plans for tackling procurement and supply chain in the telco giant. We examine the fundamental differences between strategic sourcing and category management, explore the ins and outs of what Industry 4.0 means for supply chain and then we take a look at how master data management can function as a strategic opportunity. Finally, in our soft skills piece, we give you workable tips for transforming your job interview game. Our top pick of our not-to-be-missed events is included.
