Last week we had a triumph of a day, running an eAuction masterclass at The Birmingham Botanical Gardens with lots of familiar faces of current clients filling our venue!
The day consisted of a very informative and productive agenda, which started with two of our Directors, Nick Drewe and Alun Rafique giving a fruitful insight into Market Dojo and eAuctions.
Three of our clients gave fantastic presentations showing how eAuctions have worked for them and what they have learnt from using an eSourcing tool within procurement, thank you to Paul Haycock from Nortek, Andrew Russell from Housing and 21 Stephen Wrighton from Plastipak, all their presentations can be found on our website here.
We introduced our eAuction game to the day which allowed people to try what it was like being the supplier whilst using our tool in which everyone seemed to really enjoy and learn a lot, including the importance of sticking to price margins and the difference in performance during auction from a virtual negotiation platform as opposed to face to face.
Since the game had such a good response from our guests, for our future events we plan to get our guests to run the game from the host side as well as the supplier side so they can see what the typical auction behaviour consists of.
If you happened to come along on the day, from all here at Market Dojo we would like to say a big thank you! We hope you enjoyed the day and learnt something new!
Lots of guests stayed the whole day and at the end got the chance to ask lots of one to one questions to our directors to have a more bespoke and intimate feel of market dojo and answers to their queries before having a stroll around the beautiful grounds to end the day.
(Just in case you didn’t notice the dojos in the Japanese Garden next to us here’s a picture – completely unplanned!)
