This Month at SIG – November 2018

November: the last month of autumn, but the beginning of a new adventure; time to take risks and do the unexpected.


Can you believe it? November is here! And with it comes the start of the holiday season and all the festivities that come with it. Whether this month is one you love or dread, it is a time for new adventures, and those can take shape in many different forms. Create an adventure at work this month by attending a networking event, listening to success stories of industry innovators and learning the latest trends in an online webinar. Here are highlights of the adventures that await you this month from SIG. 

Regional Networking Events

This month, we have regional networking events in four different cities: Toronto, Denver, Columbus and New York. Take a day for yourself and/or your team to collaborate in person with industry peers and learn best practices. Discussion topics vary for each event so be sure to look on our website for the most up to date agendas.

Our regional events are free to SIG members and non-members can also attend their first event at no cost, but registration is required, so sign up today to secure your spot. 

Future of Sourcing Awards Podcasts

If you couldn’t attend the inaugural Future of Souring Awards last month, (or if you attended and want to soak up even more awesomeness) you’re in luck! The Sourcing Industry Landscape podcast has published the success stories of the Awards winners and finalists. 

Each of the team and individual Awards winners and finalists were interviewed by Dawn Tiura, SIG CEO and President, to share the story of their successful projects as well as some details into their personal and professional journey. In these podcasts, you’ll learn about the importance of the mentors in their careers, what inspires them to look past the status quo and how emerging technologies are helping them to achieve efficiencies and work more strategically.
