Oct 17-21: Key Priorities, State of Supplier Diversity, Risk and Regulation


In last week’s episode of the Dial P for Procurement podcast, I followed the career of (former) Apple VP of Procurement from its sharp rise – to its spectacular fall. But what is the true reason he was fired? Listen here and then share your point of view!

If you are planning your virtual procurement event schedule beyond this week, I recommend ‘Managing supply chain risk in a changing market landscape’ from Procurement Leaders and Dun & Bradstreet on October 25th.

And now for this week’s recommendations…

Risk and regulation in 2023 – steering procurement through stormy seas (Procurement Leaders & Interos) 

October 20th, 10am ET

When we think about sources of supply chain risk, unforeseeable disruptions like weather events and geopolitics are probably among the first to come to mind. Less likely (but just as risky) are regulations. Join William Bagley, VP Enterprise Supply Chain at Freddie Mac, Greg Holt, Product Marketing Director at Interos, and Ian Lawless, Content Marketing Solutions and Conference Director for Procurement Leaders as they review the key risks and regulatory hurdles that procurement should be prepared to face in the coming year.
