Globalization, compliance pressures, supply market risk and other factors have simultaneously elevated the visibility of the procurement role within organizations. No longer a back office role, the CPO plays a crucial position in the implementation of sustainability and has evolved into an enterprise-wide strategic mission. Today’s CPO faces a host of new challenges.
The CPO Summit is the premium forum bringing elite buyers and sellers together. As an invitation-only event, taking place behind closed doors, the Summit offers solution providers and procurement executives an intimate environment for a focused discussion of key new drivers shaping the industry. CPOs and other senior executives in procurement attending the Marcus Evans CPO Summit will examine such critical topics as:
The invitation-only event, which takes place at The Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, also features individual pre-arranged one-on-one business meetings with senior representatives of key solution providers. The solution providers are on hand to share their expertise in such areas as procurement consulting, procurement outsourcing, and supplier negotiations.
Confirmed CPO presenters include DK Singh, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Procurement at ConAgra Foods (pictured at left); Rick Hughes, Chief Purchasing Officer at Procter and Gamble and member of the My Purchasing Center Editorial Advisory Board; John Thompson, Vice President, Sourcing at SunTrust Banks; Matteo Pisciotta, Vice President, Global Procurement and Supply Chain at Oshkosh Corp.; Shawn Anderson, Senior Vice President, Strategic Sourcing and Chief Procurement Officer at First Data Corp. and David Hirschi, Global Procurement Director at Dow Corning.
Data security threats continue to increase in number and sophistication. The growing use of collaborative technologies – from mobile devices and social media to virtualization and cloud computing – will continue to be one of the most significant factors impacting the security landscape. For these reasons, the federal government has increased efforts to minimize and prevent cyber security attacks, and will continue to place significant focus on securing the nation's cyber infrastructure.
Digital Government Institute's 7th annual Cyber Security Conference -- which is free for government professionals to attend -- will explore today's cyber threats and offer an opportunity for those supporting government security initiatives to collaborate on how to detect, protect, and respond to these challenges.
