Attention procurement and supply chain professionals: in today’s business environment, you have the opportunity to influence the most business-critical issues our organizations face today, and senior management is listening! In fact, according to CAPS research, 82 percent of Fortune 500 CPOs surveyed have direct access to their CEOs, up from 60 percent in 1999.
But, with these executives actively seeking your leadership and insights, are you fully prepared to rise to the challenge? On Thursday, October 13, 2016, Tania Seary, founding chairman, Procurious.com, will join the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Greater Boston community for a free event to share her best practices on how procurement and supply chain professionals can embrace that challenge and boost their career advancement opportunities.
“Our dynamic business landscape demands that professionals equip themselves with the skills they need to support their leadership teams and advance their careers,” said Tania Seary, Founding Chairman of Procurious, the leading free online community for innovative, ambitious procurement and supply chain professionals. “We are pleased to be sponsoring this event with ISM-Greater Boston and I look forward to sharing my best practices on how you can truly make an impact on your organization.”
The event kicks off at ISM-Greater Boston’s offices in Concord, MA at 5:15 p.m. with networking and cocktails, and a panel discussion on “Making Best Use of Social Media in SCM,” followed by Tania’s exclusive presentation. In “Give Your Supply Management Career a Cardio Boost: Prescriptions from the Boardroom,” Tania will delve into the areas where procurement and supply chain professionals must cover their bases and improve their core strength, from ethics and transparency to organizational alignment.
The event is the first of a new relationship between ISM-Greater Boston and Procurious and is in parallel with ISM becoming a Procurious Foundation Partner. Don’t miss your chance to learn the skills needed for you to get informed and get ahead!
