10:40 am - 11:10 am Networking Break

• Marketing can be the most complicated category to source - and often, the organisational structure can be just as complex to figure out. Who should marketing procurement report to, and where should the function sit? 
• Is the traditional category management structure still fit for purpose, as the lines blur between categories and suppliers?  Is a more project based approach the way to go, or operations spend vs new investments, or a partner facing vs business unit focus? 
• Should Marketing Procurement be managed by indirect or stand alone as its own separate function – or be integrated into the Marketing function itself?  
• What terminology and structural transitions are happening within your company to reflect the digital revolution?
