Recommended Procurement Webinars June 29 – July 3: Redefining Jobs, Quality of Influence, Data Categorization
In addition to the events listed below, this week also marks the release of the ISM-New York Report on Business and other major economic reports. Obviously, we are all watching them closely as they provide yet another month’s worth of insight into the global economy and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you are planning your webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend Get your Spend & Procurement Team in Shape for Summer from Per Angusta and Axbility on July 9th at 1pm ET.

This event slid into my inbox late last week, and I think it offers an interesting take on our current workforce challenges. We’ve all been so focused on where we are working from, that we may be missing some opportunities to think about the meaning of the work we are doing and how we get it done. Featuring Ravin Jesuthasan, Managing Director at Willis Towers Watson and coauthor of ‘Reinventing Jobs: A 4-Step Approach for Applying Automation to Work,’ and Susan Cantrell, senior consultant at Willis Towers Watson and coauthor of ‘Workforce of One: Revolutionizing Talent Management through Customization.’
June 30th, 1pm ET
What is the scale of the opportunities that are lost when procurement is not sitting at the right tables to be part of the right conversations? This podcast is being presented by Pierre Mitchell, Chief Research Officer at Spend Matters, and Corey Matthews, Secretary of ISM-Dallas, and will focus on recent CPO-based research. While this session will focus on influence and metrics, it is the first of a series of planned lunch-hour webinars, so keep your eyes out for more. Note: This webinar is for practitioners only.
July 2nd at 2pm ET
Have you noticed the increasing number of articles, posts, and webinars focused on the poor current state of procurement’s data quality? Unfortunately, there are more ways to look at the problem than there are readily available solutions. In this webinar, an impressive panel of speakers will address technology-enabled data categorization in complex spend environments. Featuring Magnus Bergfors, VP European Research and Lead Analyst at Spend Matters, Jenny Draper, General Manager Europe at Spend Matters, Sebastian Kahlmeyer, Senior Vice President SCM Digitalization & Data Management at Siemens, Dominik Rheinheimer, Senior Manager SCM Digitalization & Data Management at Siemens, and Adriano Garibotto, Co-Founder, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Creactives.
