A Few Year-end Thoughts from Buyers Meeting Point

A Few Year-end Thoughts from Buyers Meeting Point

To everyone within reach of the Buyers Meeting Point community,

I know that you have a lot of options for where to spend your precious (and scarce) discretionary time. For every minute you spent on BMP in 2016, thank you. The content that I provide on this site, via my podcast, and on supporting sites is a labor of love. I’m not a marketing person or a sales person – I’m a procurement professional that has found a way to combine my love of learning with a format that allows me to reach and connect with like-minded professionals all the world over.

Over the next week, I wish you warm, happy times with friends and family. I wish you all the optimism that comes with the start of a new year. And most of all, I wish you rest – because come January 3rd, we have a lot of work to do!

I can’t wait to see what 2017 has to offer us all, and I look forward to being a part of your own personal, evolutionary journey. If there is ever anything I can do to help, don’t hesitate to let me know.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year… I’m already looking forward to reconnecting with you in early January!

Kelly Barner

Owner and Managing Director, Buyers Meeting Point
