January 10-14: 10 Procurement Priorities, Sourcing in 2022, and Handling Supply Uncertainty
Happy New Year! In addition to being the first recommended events post of 2022, this week also marks the start of the LinkedIn Creator Accelerator program I am a part of. I was one of 100 creators selected out of thousands of applicants. My project, focused on supplier diversity, will run for 10 weeks starting this week, with 4 new pieces of content each week. My interviews have been underway since before Christmas, so don’t miss out! You can find the content by following me here or searching for #SupplierDiversityDiscussions on LinkedIn.
If you are planning your webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend Art of Procurement Digital Outcomes 2022 on March 8-10. Registration is open and free! Click here to sign up.

Peter is the master of this information. Join him for practical advice about how procurement can make the most of the year ahead.
