SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announces a SIGnature event in London on February 1, 2017.
SIGnature Events are one-day conferences for Fortune 500/Global 1000 professionals. The London event kicks off with an all-delegate breakfast, followed by a live peer-to-peer/grand roundtable. Plenary sessions cover topics such as The CPO of the Future, The Rise of Emerging Technologies, Balancing Risk and Value in Continuous Process Improvement, The Dynamics of Direct Material Sourcing and Procurement and What it Takes to Achieve Success in Today’s Outsourcing World. In addition the event also features an hour-and-a-half of rotating roundtable sessions that facilitate open discussions on burning issues with smaller groups of delegates. Buy-side delegates can register for this event on the SIG website.
“The SIGnature Event program allows buy-side executives from different industries to share successes and failures and network with colleagues in the surrounding area,” says Eleanor Winn, Managing Director, SIG EMEA. “These days offer deep learning opportunities and facilitate open dialogues between executive peers on burning issues.”
The London SIGnature Event directly precedes the Challenge the Future Awards and Conference, which take place on February 2-3, 2017, also in London. Co-produced with ISG, the Challenge the Future event is the first of its kind and showcases some of the most innovative and technologically advanced uses of automation that are changing the face of the working world.
