This webinar topic is timely, critical and broad enough to offer something for everyone. Supply chains are strategic, risky, directly tied to the bottom line and competitive advantage - and they lead to the creation of a TON of data. In this webinar, the team from Tradeshift will discuss supply chain trends and opportunities as well as the technologies (yes, this includes AI) that can help us meet the analytical requirements of fast-paced, enterprise supply chains.

I love it when a company I’m familiar with presents a first-person case study on a topic I’m interested in. In this case, we have an event featuring Gerald Dunning, lululemon’s Director of Financial Shared Services, and Michael Van Keulen, their Director of Global Procurement, as they provide insight into their procure-to-pay transformation journey.
