Seattle, Wa. (PRWEB) January 22, 2016 -- SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announces a one-day Regional Roundtable to be held in Seattle, WA. The Regional Roundtable is a one-day strategic meeting that will take place from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at Puget Sound Energy. This buy-side event provides education and local networking for professionals from Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies. A combination of practitioner presentations, facilitated roundtables and panel discussions, a SIG Regional Roundtable enables delegates to converse in a collegial, non-commercial environment.
The Seattle event is rich in top-of-mind issues for sourcing and outsourcing professionals. Host Puget Sound Energy will give a presentation on strategic planning as an anecdote to change, followed by Russell Investments, who will speak on how to create a playbook for best-in-class supplier lifecycle management. Thought leaders from Microsoft and Ariba will round out the agenda.
“Our Regional Roundtable program allows colleagues in a local community to network with like-minded professionals and brainstorm on those issues that are keeping them up at night,” says Stephani McGarry, Vice President, SIG Global Events. Adds Dawn Tiura, SIG CEO and President, “We are excited to come back to Seattle where innovation is part of the fabric of every day life. The Regional Roundtable program facilitates discussions where that innovation can take place.”
