​We are delighted to announce that Nick Barber, Executive Director, and Christine CorsonSVP – Procurement & Sourcing Recruitment, will be hosting a round table session at this year’s Procurement Leaders: Agility & Transformation Forum, taking place September 10th- 11th, 2019 in Chicago.

DSJ Global will be hosting a break-out round table session called, “How to become a talent magnet in Procurement and Supply Chain?” This session will allow for collaborative discussion amongst the delegates exploring how organizations can attract and secure top talent, and some of the challenges associated with recruitment internally and in the market. Facilitated by Nick Barber and Christine Corson, the delegates will also look at questions around how procurement can be promoted as a career path beginning at the entry-level, and how technology changes will impact the skill sets required in procurement organizations of the future. 

“We’re very excited to be a part of the Procurement Leaders Forum this year and leading a discussion on something so important to us and our clients. I expect that our unique perspective as a procurement recruitment business, combined with feedback from mangers directly will make for great conversation. Talent drives a company’s success and we’re looking forward to creating some buzz around where the future of procurement is headed,” says Corson. 

The speakers and round table sessions will provide insight into how specific elements can be optimized to increase procurement competitiveness and agility, to help accelerate the delivery of solutions to solve business challenges faster. We are honored to participate in this exciting event, and we are excited to learn from the esteemed delegates who will share their knowledge and experience throughout the forum.
