San Francisco, Ca. (PRWEB) April 28, 2016
SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, is holding a Global Roundtable (http://sig.org/regionals.php) in Sydney, Australia, on 12 May 2016. SIG has packed the schedule with executive presentations, buy-side executive peer-to-peer roundtables and keynote presentations on topics ranging from organizational change to the robotics revolution.
“We are seeing the sourcing/outsourcing group being asked to take an active seat in the board room more and more frequently,” says SIG Vice President of Global Events, Stephani McGarry. “Creating a forum for these professionals to openly exchange ideas, concerns and hot buttons with other companies facing the same challenges, is more critical than ever before and provides a powerful learning experience for everyone who attends.”
SIG Roundtables bring together executives from Global 1000 and Fortune 500 companies to network and discuss issues and best practices in sourcing, procurement, outsourcing, offshoring and nearshoring. Over the course of this one-day event, senior buy-side executives from different industries share successes and failures, engage in open dialogues and address challenges faced by sourcing and outsourcing executives. As with all SIG events, the Sydney Roundtable keynote and breakout sessions are presented by globally-recognized companies and cover topics that include driving organisational change, enabling effective services procurement through technology, the robotics revolution, and procurement shared services as a best practice.
