Recommended Procurement Webinars August 12-16: AP Excellence, Legendary Coaching and Twitter Transparency
This summer has brought a procurement webinar drought. I’m taking it one week at a time… I have some recommendations for this week and for next week and then we’ll see if anything is listed for the last week of August.
If you are planning your webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend “The Strategic CFO is Thriving with Risk” from Coupa and Levvel Research on September 5th. I appreciate the opportunity to hear about the top Finance officer’s risk priorities and challenges – especially since Coupa is putting up their own CFO as a speaker during the event.
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.
August 13th, 2pm ET
Sure, procurement is all stressed out trying to match the consumer experience of Amazon with our P2P platform, but what about AP? Our UI may not be anything to brag about, but at least we’re not using PAPER (most of the time…). In this webinar, Jess Scheer, Executive Editor at IOFM, and Jason Vincelette, Director of Product Management at Basware, will share their insights on how to improve conditions in AP.
August 13th, 6pm ET
In this session, Beau Groover, Founder & President of The Effective Syndicate, will discuss what legendary sports coaches do to make the competition a non-issue and help us translate that to the corporate space.
