Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announces a robust agenda at their Global Summit in Nashville taking place April 1-3, 2014. The Omni Nashville Hotel where the event is taking place, is expected to sell out.
The premium line-up of content includes keynote sessions on the economy, innovation, talent management, outsourcing and supplier relationship management. Over 50 breakout sessions are planned and organized within tracks that include sourcing, outsourcing, talent and organizational development, performance, governance and risk management.
“We design our agenda to address the issues our Fortune and Global 500 members are facing,” said Jeff Felix, SIG COO. “The content at our semi-annual Summits has radically evolved over the past few years as our members needs and concerns have changed to address global issues affecting the U.S. economy.”
“The agenda we have put together is incredible,” added Dawn Evans, SIG CEO and President. “I’m always overwhelmed by the willingness of our members to share their best practices and lessons learned so their colleagues—and in some cases their competitors—can advance the industry. When you have speakers from companies like Iron Mountain, Google, Boeing, Wellpoint, University of Tennessee and Visa, you are guaranteed to have a rich agenda that is not to be missed.”
SIG Summits bring executives from Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies together to access the latest innovations, network and discuss issues and best practices in sourcing, procurement, outsourcing, offshoring, and nearshoring. During the three-day agenda, senior buy-side executives from a variety of industries—including financial services, retail, consumer packaged goods, healthcare, manufacturing and many others—will share successes and failures, engage in open dialogues and address challenges.
