Recommended Procurement Webinars April 27-May 1: A Crucial Coalition, Unlocking Strategic Value, CPO Rising 2020
In addition to the events listed below, we also get one other fantastic gift this week – we FINALLY get to turn the calendar from April to May. I can’t think that I’m the only person that is past ready to bid farewell to April 2020 forever.
If you are planning your schedule further ahead, I recommend “Contract Management Tips to Prepare for the Next Global Pandemic!” from IACCM and ContractPodAI on May 5th.
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.

In this webinar, Magnus Bergfors, Lead Analyst at Spend Matters, and Todd Ford, CFO at Coupa, will talk about how the power of procurement is in our ability to provide structure in times of uncertainty – and no, that won’t end with the coronavirus pandemic. The time to cement our role as steadfast contributor is now, and the impact to our role and influence will be lasting.
