Fortune 500 procurement, sourcing and outsourcing executives to gather outside Jacksonville, Florida May 14-16, 2013.

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.

SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, is holding a Global Sourcing Summit at the Omni Plantation Resort in Amelia Island, outside Jacksonville, Florida and will have four keynotes on topics that are top-of-mind for Fortune 500 decision makers.

  • Garrison Wynn, advisor, author and entertainer speaking on “What the Most Successful Leaders Do Differently”
  • Dave Barthel, executive director of Allegis Group Services speaking on “50% of Workforce Predicted to be Contingent Labor by 2015…Is This a Procurement Issue, HR Imperative or Both”
  • Roberto Chaverri, corporate vice president, CEMEX, Brad Peterson, partner, Mayer Brown and David Whitmore, vice chairman and president, Americas, ISG discussing the highly-anticipated sourcing transformation project by CEMEX, who in July 2012 announced that it expects to save close to $1 billion through a 10-year strategic agreement with IBM for ITO and BPO services.

“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.”
