Writing Procurement’s Future at the Big Ideas Summit

Serving as sponsors and keynote speakers, Source One will join industry innovators at Procurious’ Chicago conference.

Chicago, IL, May 31, 2019 –(PR.com)– This fall, the spend management consultants at Source One, a Corcentric company, will join a select group of procurement leaders as sponsors and speakers of the Procurious Big Ideas Summit in Chicago. The innovative one-day event takes place on September 18th and aims to shake up the conversation around Procurement to deliver game-changing ideas and inspiration to shape the future of the supply management function.

The Big Ideas Summit is hosted by Procurious, a unique online community designed to bring a new generation of Supply Chain professionals together. According to Founder Tania Seary, the site aims to “Change the face of the [Procurement] profession from the inside out” by providing a forum for practitioners and consultants from around the globe to exchange cutting-edge insights. Their annual series of Big Ideas conferences around the world plays a major role in delivering on this objective.

“Though it takes place over a single day, the Procurious Big Ideas Summit makes a real impact,” says Source One Director, Diego De la Garza. “Last year’s keynote presentations provided the wealth of Supply Management insights one might expect from a week-long convention. I’m eager to see what this year’s Summit has in store.”

The 2018 Chicago Summit saw experts from organizations including Dell, IBM, and GlaxoSmithKline reflect on sustainable packaging, evolving supply chain risks, and the considerable value of “outsider” perspectives in designing Procurement strategies. This year’s Big Thinkers are expected to tackle Procuring with Purpose, Artificial Intelligence, Building a Procurement Team of the Future and much more.

Sponsoring the unique event is representative of Source One’s continued stride as an advocate for elevating the role of the procurement function. The Big Ideas Summit is just one of the several networking events Source One’s team will attend throughout the second half of 2019. They look forward to exchanging insights at their Annual Procurement Professionals Happy Hour in Chicago and the Consero Strategic Sourcing Forum in New York.
