This AOP Live session is based on the 3rd annual Data Quality and Governance study run by N. C. State… which… isn’t actually read for publication yet. The good news is that we have study co-author Joseph Yacura, former CPO at companies like Fannie Mae, IHG, Bank of America and American Express. He has a ton to say about the current state of data quality and therefore our digital readiness. Sign up today and AOP Host Philip Ideson will ask your questions live tomorrow!

Procurement has done our fair share of lamenting about the difficulty of getting the attention of the C-suite. If the problem isn’t our ideas, maybe it is our way of communicating them. In this webinar, Paul Vincent, Global Head of Services Procurement at Hays Talent Solutions, David Swift, Global Head of Corporate Procurement at Novartis and William Johnson, Managing Director of Openside Group, “will cover the do’s and don’ts of presenting your ideas to the C-suite and how to talk their language.” The advice they share will be on their own experiences speaking with – and winning over – the C-suite.
