Recommended Procurement Webinars July 6-10: A Post-COVID World, IT Collaboration, and a Summer Reset
Another week, another 9 new webinars. I think we’re seeing a meaningful shift this week from all-COVID-all-the-time to a longer term look at what’s next, whether that means the economy, changes in how we manage our supply chains, or significant industry restructuring.
If you are planning your webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend the next AOP Live session featuring Christopher Eyerman and David Clevenger from Denali: Embracing the Ecosystem: Building Your Unique Digital Roadmap. You have until July 14th to register and submit your questions to be asked live during the event.
If you would like to join me for a live webinar this week, I am moderating a conversation with CIPS Americas' VP of Operations Bill Michels to discuss the first ever CIPS/Hays North American salary survey, July 8th at 2pm ET.
BTW: If you haven’t already, sign up for our mailing list to be sure you get my weekly recommendations in your inbox each Monday.

With most people being away from the office for the last few months (and in some cases the foreseeable future), the time may be right for a procurement reset. Join Romain Rousseau, Axbility Consulting Director, Pierre Lapree, CEO-Founder of Per Angusta, and two former CPOS, Jordan Jansen (Deutsche Bank, CPO of Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino and more recently the CPO of Savers), and Eric Germa (Macy’s, Ann Inc., HP Services, and The Gap), as they share their insights regarding procurement people, processes, and technology.
