“I worked with Kavita, as her business development contact while she was procuring a new TMC, on behalf of her client. Firstly, Kavita is a pleasure to work with. She has truly mastered the art of harnessing a genuine and professional relationship with whom she comes into contact with. She is innovative, forward thinking and her commitment and hard work far outweighs her remit. Her friendly but ‘hard bargaining’ technique ensures suppliers feel empowered to offer competitive rates, as we can see the true value of a partnership with whom she recommends. On a personal level, I am inspired by Kavita’s driven attitude to her career. She is becoming quite the trailblazer to women especially, making it abundantly clear that anything is possible, when you have the right attitude.”

Kavita and her team at Novo-K have the skills, resources and experience to support organisations with everything from individual projects to providing a fully functioning procurement support team. At The Children’s Society, we have benefitted from their clear and plain-speaking approach and flexibility in adapting to our evolving needs.

Paul Robbs de la Hoyde

“We were very impressed with Novo-K throughout the RFP. The process of investigation into the supply chain, gaining insight into the individual suppliers and their capabilities enabled Novo-K to rationalise, delivering best value and service whilst also simplifying supplier management for the Client.”

Duncan Marrison

Managing Director, Mosaic Fulfilment Solutions

In September 2017, we ran two workshops at eWorld: Procurement & Supply sharing our #SMARTprocurement model and demonstrating how collaboration within organisations can make a difference with our tools and templates.

“I found the Novo-K workshop at eWorld very helpful. I am already using some of the tools they shared to promote procurement within my organisation.”

Novo-K have been our key partner in procurement development. Kavita was key in helping us to find a solution to our needs by listening closely and feeding back to us.

Lisa Kiew

Head of Finance and Resource, Quakers in Britain

“Kavita and Novo-K were employed by my charity Livability when I was Procurement Lead there. I have no hesitation in recommending Kavita for any role that she feels that is appropriate for her. I found Kavita to be knowledgeable in her role of consultant advisor, adding this to her verve and intelligence the project she was employed to assist in was concluded to acclaim and success. She and her company were diligent and timely with responses to questions and statements too. I would employ Kavita in any project in the 3rd Sector that requires expertise and experience in the procurement function.”

Ian Kirsch

Head of Procurement, Liveability

“At Maudsley Charity we have been impressed with Novo-K, who helped connect us to an excellent company for our stationary needs. The communication with the Novo-K team was smooth and timely, and they took the time to really understand our needs. We’re looking forward to a good relationship with the new company, who we would not have found without Novo-K.”
