1. ProcureCon has had a direct impact on my career, because it helped me network to find my next opportunity.
Ever since a colleague of mine encouraged me to speak at a ProcureCon Vendor Management summit in 2013, I have been inspired to be a part of the ProcureCon community. For me, ProcureCon has always been about the connections. It’s an incredibly unique mix of strategic and tactical procurement professionals networking with one another and exchanging experiences and best practices on some of the most critical issues we face. In no other non-membership organization will you find the valuable, actionable insights you take away from ProcureCon events. But more importantly, the engaged community ProcureCon has built is unrivaled.
I speak from experience. When I attended my first ProcureCon event, I was considering changing companies to find a new opportunity a little closer to home. While doing some networking at the event, I formed a relationship with a well- connected CPO. We stayed in touch and after a couple more introductions, I was connected with the headhunter who helped me find my current job as the Vice President of Indirect Procurement at Pitney Bowes. Without a doubt, ProcureCon has had a direct impact on my career, because it helped me network to find my next opportunity.
