(9/30/2015) Still crazy (for webinars) after all these years...

webinar2Buyers Meeting Point has been listing, recommending, and covering procurement and supply chain webinars for 6 years - if there were an award for most webinars attended, we’d be a shoo-in. You can read our notes from almost 200 of them here. During that time we’ve made an effort to objectively list and honestly recommend the events that we think are the best each week. We’ve also shared our notes and thoughts on the ones we attended.

 

Hopefully you’ve taken the opportunity to attend an interesting event based on our coverage - one that you wouldn’t otherwise have known about.

 

Based on that experience, and our continued love of webinars after all these years, we were recently presented with the opportunity to collaborate with Webinara, a brand new platform for promoting and improving webinars of all kinds. The higher the demand for webinars, the more will be offered. And this is definitely a case of more being more.

  • Why supply market intelligence capabilities are so critical for today's ambitious procurement organizations
  • Steps you can take today to start building a supply market intelligence program
  • The potential return from supply market intelligence in terms of improved results and expanded influence
