The event officially opens Tuesday morning with a keynote by Carey Lohrenz, the first female F14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot for the U.S. Navy. Her presentation on succeeding in a high-pressure environment is one of many sessions highlighting the importance of strong leadership skills. Other keynote sessions include Dr. Tim Elmore, an authority on understanding the next generation and preparing tomorrow’s leaders for today’s workforce; Brian Biro, an author of nine books and award-winning speaker; and a panel of Chief Procurement Officers and leaders from a variety of industries talking about the challenges they face daily.
“Our agenda for this Summit is amazing,” said SIG CEO and President Dawn Evans. “We not only have some of the most relevant topics and content facing leaders in procurement and outsourcing today, but we also have a veritable ‘who’s who’ in the industry at our event. The global brands that are speaking and attending cross all industries and are universally-recognized as leaders in this space as well as in their own industry. It’s just incredible.”
Jeff Felix, SIG COO, added, “I’m floored by the content we have received from our speakers. The topics are forward-thinking and the presentations offer solutions companies can take home and put to use for immediate results.”
