SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announces the return of the CPO Meet and Eat Program to Denver, Colorado on November 7, 2018 for a fourth quarter forum of Chief Procurement Officers and other executives. At the CPO Meet and Eat event, sourcing and outsourcing executives gather for a three-hour senior-level networking event and breakfast meeting to discuss issues they are facing in their organizations and solutions to their biggest challenges.
The CPO Meet and Eat will take place at Arrow Electronics, where an exclusive group of senior executives will convene to discuss their priorities for the year, share a meal and hear from other industry peers. CPO Meet and Eat events include a keynote presentation, a “day in the life” conversation by local CPOs and an opportunity to network and benchmark with peers in a local community.
The Denver event commences with a welcome and introductions followed by a keynote from Bruce Morton, Head of Strategy at Allegis Global Solutions and “day in the life” discussions led by Carolyn Pisel, CPO/VMO of Arrow Electronic and John McGoun, CPO of Change Healthcare. The event concludes with an open roundtable discussion on the issues, challenges and most pressing concerns for the executives in the room. “By inviting only the most senior procurement leaders, CPOs are better able to share and network with each other making for an unparalleled day of networking,” said Stephani McGarry, Chief Engagement Officer, SIG. “The three hours fly by as the CPOs are able to tap into each other’s expertise and walk away with tangible solutions to challenges they face.”
