ISM2018 is drawing to a close, but conference season is just getting started for supply management professionals.
Industry-wide, Procurement pros are looking to sell themselves, make connections, and absorb the insights that'll (hopefully) take their organization to the next level. For some, this is easier said than done. Introductions and conversations can exhaust even the most social supply managers. Toss informative sessions and panel discussions into the mix, and things can get completely overwhelming.
Associate Director and Procurement Transformation Practice Lead Jennifer Ulrich has attended quite a few conferences in her time with Source One. Recently, she discussed aligning Procurement's technology, people, and processes at JAGGAER's REV2018 Conference. Though she's moved from attendee to presenter, she still does her fair share of networking when conference seasons comes around.
On the latest episode of the Source One Podcast, she offers some tips, best practices, and worst practices to Procurement professionals who are new to networking events. Whether you're gearing up for your first conference - or just in need of some pointers - her insights should prove helpful.
