Supply Excellence has put together an exciting – and FREE – program in Chicago this month called “Seven Habits of Highly Effective CPO’s.” And I’m very flattered that they asked me to participate as a speaker.
Here’s an excerpt from their invitation:
“Seven Habits of Highly Effective CPOs” Seminar Presented by Supply Excellence
Featuring Next Level Purchasing.
February 26, 2009 – Chicago, IL
560 W. Washington Boulevard Suite 100
Chicago, IL 60661
3:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
You won’t want to miss this complimentary seminar that will provide a rare opportunity to hear career advancement advice from industry luminaries Larry Welch, former CPO of HP, and Charles Dominick, SPSM – President, Next Level Purchasing.
Throughout this insightful seminar, Larry will provide a detailed account of his journey to becoming CPO at HP, including:
– Best practices for addressing common job pains
– Why Larry believes the CPO is especially important in today’s economic climate
– Candid advice for advancing your career
Following Larry’s presentation, Charles Dominick will discuss what makes you qualified to be a CPO highlighting trends and best practices that Next Level Purchasing recommends for successful sourcing and procurement professionals. There will be a Q&A session following both presentations.
Be sure to stay for the complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine tasting with your peers, where you will learn the subtle nuances of choosing a great wine for any occasion from a master sommelier.
RSVP Today! Due to the exclusivity of the event and limited space, please register by February 20. Reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
During my presentation, I will share a first glimpse into some exciting new research we’ve done on the CPO position. Specifically, you will be one of the few to be privy to hear these topics:
1. Shocking statistics about CPO qualifications
2. How valuable is industry expertise for tomorrow’s CPO?
3. Today’s CPO leads more than just procurement
