“We are excited about all of these sessions. We’ve heard consistently from our members that they want to hear best practices on talent management and leadership, as these affect all parts of their organizations,” said Jeff Felix, SIG COO. “The CEMEX session will draw a lot of attention from our attendees, many of whom are struggling with sourcing transformation and how to achieve success.” Adds SIG CEO and President Dawn Evans, “One of the most valuable opportunities our Summits provide is the chance for executives in Fortune 500/Global 1000 companies to benchmark with peer organizations across industries and apply those learnings back to their own. The connections made by networking at the Summit alone can provide attendees with years of future value.”
In addition to the keynote sessions, the Summit’s three content-rich days include 12 workshops, over 35 breakout sessions and multiple daily networking opportunities. For more information or to register, visit http://www.sig.org/summit.
