Simon Frost - Procurement Adventurer
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Hello. I’m Simon Frost
My mission is to turbo-charge procurement and supply chain teams to unlock amazing sustainable value - from cost savings and improved supplier relationships to streamlined supply networks and procurement led innovation.
Several years ago, I noticed that many procurement teams were lacking flair and not always performing to their full potential. Furthermore, procurement consultants were getting mixed reviews, maybe delivering solid results but imparting few procurement skills with their clients. Spotting this opportunity, I set up my business.
When it comes to the way I work, my ethos is simple. I don’t just deliver the fish - I also teach people how to catch them. In this way I’ll lock the skills we learn into the DNA of your business ensuring continued benefits long after I've gone.
I don’t do dull. I don’t use complex jargon or claim phoney cost savings.
I do energy, adventure, hard work and excellent results.
