On the one hand, all of this week's events are focused on supply chain disruption - on the other hand they are all empowering, and solution oriented. If you attend one of our webinar and learn something you plan to put into practice, reach out and let me know!
If you are planning your procurement webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend "Sustainability through Supplier Collaboration: From green ideal to commercial imperative" from Vizibl and ecovadis on February 3rd at 10am ET.

Bolstorff, EVP Corporate Development for ACSM, Frank Baur, VP of Supply Chain EMEA for Parker Hannifin, Dirk Holbach, CSCO at Henkel, Andreas Thonig, Regional Sales Director for Tradeshift, and Paddy Le Count, Supply Chain Project Director for Reuters Events.
