Plan IT for Our Planet


In Larry’s own words:

Want to make a difference where you work? Get up to speed on what value is all about.

“I have spent the past decade working in the social procurement arena. This is one of the most important strategies which procurement people need to be savvy with.

I’ve taken a pragmatic approach on how to explain what social procurement is and how to implement it in your organization.

No more time for another course? Good-my book will save you the time. You’ll get a primer on social procurement practices on this must know subject.

We cover the economic, social and ethical benefits. We define the roles of stakeholders such as public buyers, private business operations and financial institutions. We quantify the benefits of SP with many examples and models-making it easy to grasp the concepts.

I will tell you how the trade agreements enable local sourcing with specific exemption and exception clauses.
We provide case studies to illustrate how SP is making a difference to people everywhere and it does not cost more money. There is a social return on investment which we will review and go into the economic multiplier effect-which is often left out of decision-making.

I’ll share best practices on how to communicate SP, which resources you might need, and the challenges of change management.

After reading the book you will be well aware of how SP works and how to advocate for affecting values-leading to actions you can take.

The book has lots of examples to draw from and outlines the scalable solution which can be adapted everywhere.
Get ahead of the curve and be comfortable with this new found tool for business decisions.

Impress your boss with your knowledge-you can read Plan It for Our Planet and put it to work the next day.

For $5.99-you can’t afford not to!”
