January 23-27: Finance Transformation, Tech Spending, Executive Predictions


From famine to feast! December may have been a slow month for industry events, but January has been packed full of new topics, speakers, and perspectives. As procurement works to better align with the objectives of the business as whole, we’re broadening the range of webinars on the calendar, so check it out and explore all of your options.

If you are planning your procurement event schedule beyond this week, check out ‘The CPO Agenda – Top Priorities for 2023’ on February 8th from The Hackett Group.

And now for this week’s recommendations… 


Transformation is the only way for CFOs to thrive! (Proactis)

January 24th, 9am ET

We’ve talked about procurement transformation for a long time, but does that mean transformation by procurement or transformation of procurement? I guess it depends on who’s speaking. Conversations that impact procurement are happening with a number of different C-level executives… CFOs included. Join Richard Hughes, CFO, Proactis and Chris Argent, MD and Founder of GENCFO for a different look at transformation.


How Your Company Can Be More Strategic About Its Tech Spending (Harvard Business Review)

January 24th, 12n ET

Just like conversations about transformation, conversations about spending may involve lots of stakeholders beyond procurement. In this webinar hosted by the Harvard Business Review, Paul Leinwand, Jenny Koehler, Mahadeva Matt Mani from PwC will provide tech spending advice that I’m guessing is aimed at the CEO. And if someone is talking to your CEO about controlling spend, you should probably know what they are saying.
