Recommended Procurement Webinars Feb 18-22: Sourcing Optimization, Cost Transparency and 2019 Tech Trends

This week and next week are busy, with 8 webinars currently scheduled for each. One thing I’ve noticed since starting back up in January is that webinar hosts are posting events with a bit less lead time than usual – sometimes less than a week – so make it part of your routine to look at our full calendar each Monday (or Friday afternoon) if you’d like to see a complete list.
