"Cost Containment - Even More Important in a Post-COVID World" Webinar

Rod Sherkin, President of ProPurchaser, and Kelly Barner, Managing Director of Buyers Meeting Point, have agreed to share their views on what our profession needs to do to prepare for a post COVID-19 world.

Kelly will start off by discussing how traditional procurement best practices may need to change in order to meet future challenges. Coming out of COVID-19, Kelly anticipates that many companies will be cash poor and acutely focused on saving money to protect and preserve their margins. She then describes important future challenges - cost containment being key among them.

Rod will then continue the conversation with advice on how to prepare for what may be coming next. He will present tried-and-true ideas for containing costs while boosting supply chain resilience. In addition, he will explain strategies and tactics for making suppliers' costs transparent. More importantly, he will describe how to use this knowledge - not only to negotiate better pricing, but also to attract the best and most reliable suppliers.

The goal of this webinar is to better prepare you for the future. You may be pleasantly surprised at how effective you can become at driving costs lower and career prospects higher.
