JAGGAER Talks Procurement at ProcureCon Indirect East: February 22-24, 2016


When I was approached and asked to be a moderator for three procurement panels at this year’s ProcureCon Indirect East Conference in Orlando, FL, I jumped at the chance.  Before joining JAGGAER’s product marketing team, I was a procurement professional with an ambition to combine my 20 years of experience as a practitioner with the marketing knowledge I had acquired over that time, allowing me to provide a 360° view of the procurement space.

This year’s conference programing lives up to ProcureCon’s stellar reputation.  I can guarantee these procurement discussions will be helpful and engaging. If you plan on attending, I hope you will join me and the panelists for the following sessions:
