To connect our procurement network, we held an event for key individuals responsible for supply chain through our businesses. The first in-person event for this group since the pandemic, it was great to see our team from various companies and industries finding commonalities, sharing experiences and discussing approaches to procurement. Thank you to all the attendees who joined us from throughout North America.

With over 30 years of experience, Jill Button is an entrepreneur, strategic sourcing and supply chain expert who is passionate about teaching procurement.
