Recommended Procurement Webinars for August 7 - 11: Career Breaks as an Opportunity for Redirection
We have sort of an interesting event dynamic this week – three events, all on Thursday between 8am and 1pm ET. Of the three, I think there is one standout event, detailed below. Looking at the current calendar, clearly webinar organizers are expecting the bulk of summer vacations to be over by the week of August 28th, and September is already starting to take shape.

August 10th, 8am ET
I think this webinar is the ‘new’ topic I’ve been waiting for all summer. Unlike the career-long, 9-5, watch at retirement days of old, career progressions today involve a little more meandering and maybe a break or two. What if you pause to start a family? What if you are laid off? What if you decide to go back to school? The speakers in this webinar (a McDonalds Sourcing Director turned Procurement Entrepreneur, a “high flying Procurement Superstar”, and a Recruitment & Talent Expert – all unnamed) will share whether it possible to pick back up where you left off or use a career break as an opportunity to set yourself on an entirely new progression.
