I’m also presenting a webinar this week, along with Jaggaer and WNS Denali: How can you control rogue marketing spend?

If the decision making role of bots (AI and RPA, not robots) is on the rise, at what point will humans be rendered obsolete? In this webinar, Procurious and IBM give us reason for hope. They will talk about the strategic potential of cognitive technology and how we can let it advance our careers rather than ending them.

It has been said that a squirrel is just a rat with a press agent. If that is true, where is the press agent – and can procurement sign him? We may have a well-established internal image, but it isn’t anything most people would proudly claim as a brand. In this webinar, Jon Hansen (Procurement Insights) will look at where we stand on brand today and what we need to do to improve it.

There is no shortage of big challenges for procurement to address in the supply chain. In this webinar, Spend Matters’ Jason Busch and Coupa’s senior economist and risk expert Ahmad Sadeddin will talk about how the economy, environment, and regulations can be prepared for and handled with more poise than panic.
