HQP Champion.

   

HQP Champion

In order that our Partners gain the maximum benefit from their relationship with HQP, we are introducing the role of HQP Champion.

The Champions will be keen advocates of HQP and will play a key role in ensuring that their organisation gains maximum value from belonging to HQP. By being the ‘go to’ HQP link, they will help to improve communication between your team and HQP, so that all internal buyers know how HQP agreements can drive savings and add commercial value, whilst senior management teams can monitor how well the relationship is working. Our Champions will also provide essential feedback to the HQP team on how well our agreements are working currently and how they can improve and develop.

We will provide our Champions with a number of benefits including networking opportunities, newsletters and bespoke training days. For this reason, some Partners are already seeing this as a professional development opportunity for the right team member.

To discuss appointing your HQP Champion, please contact Liz Reynolds, Partner Support Manager on 01625 509198 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


 

 

Alison Bruce, Head of Estates and Facilities - HQP Champion at Dorothy House

"As a senior manager of a diverse department, who is also responsible for procurement, being partnered with a nationwide network of experts and consultants is of huge benefit, whether it results in reduction in costs or advice.

Since joining HQP a couple of years ago, we have developed a good working relationship with our main contacts Tracey and Liz, who have offered the opportunity to speak with their supplier and client partners on key issues and potential buying power i.e. catering, refurbishment, stationery, accommodation issues. 

To have all of this expertise and business support in one place is beneficial and reassuring, particularly when considering expenditure and budgets.  We all came together recently at Dorothy House to meet with other senior managers to give everyone an opportunity of better understanding the services and benefits of being part of this partnership.  At Dorothy House, we are very conscious of keeping spend within our region as well as considering our carbon footprint, HQP also take this into consideration. 

I am currently engaging in client relationship meetings with my current suppliers and contractors, the outcome of these discussions will be to encourage further partnering with HQP, and other value for money opportunities”.

Thanks Alison! Our Champions play a key role in ensuring that their organisation gains maximum value from belonging to HQP. By being the ‘go to’ HQP link, they improve communication between the hospice team and HQP so that all internal buyers know how HQP agreements can drive savings and add commercial value, whilst senior management teams keep tabs on how well the relationship is working. Our Champions provide essential feedback to the HQP team on how well our agreements are working now and how they can improve and develop.
