Keynote: Fireside Chat with ABM Industries and SIG from GEP

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 - 11:00

All delegates welcome. Join us to kick off the SIG Procurement Technology Summit today and a Keynote Session with our thought leader partner GEP. 

Now that we are firmly entrenched in the ""next normal"" how are companies moving forward? Moving out of ""reaction"" and into resilience - what do procurement teams need to know? 

In this session, Chris Murawski, CPO, ABM Industries and Dawn Tiura, CEO, SIG will discuss:

  • The future of procurement 
  • Strengthening resiliency in our teams
  • Our role in sustainability and diversity, equity and inclusion 
  • The increasing emphasis on third party risk management 
  • The impact of remote work on our culture

And of course, which digital tools will assist, and how digital transformation is no longer a buzz word but a must have.
