Outsource talked - live from the Summit

Posted: 10/20/2016 - 05:51

I always love hosting our Outsource Talks webinars – but today’s was even more enjoyable than usual, featuring as it did three remarkable professionals gathered together in the same place, rather than dialling in as is customary. Having Morgan Lewis’ Ed Hansen, Ivalua’s Gary Malhotra and Outsource columnist Thom Mead round a table here at the SIG Summit in California was a unique pleasure, generating as it did a delightful degree of interaction alongside the anticipated thought leadership. A very wide-ranging conversation included examinations of milestone contracting, RPA, the correct place in the organisation of the CPO, and nothing less than the future of sourcing – all fuelled by plenty of probing questions from our audience.

As usual, I want to thank my panel for the great pleasure of their company and insight – insight which you too can share, even if you were unable to attend today’s Outsource Talks, via the recording of the webinar which you can register to access here (feel free as usual to distribute that link to any colleagues and/or friends with an interest in sourcing, outsourcing or just quality business thinking). I look forward to more content coming from all three of today’s panellists over the next weeks and months, but don’t wait for that: check out today’s Outsource Talks, as it really is a demonstration of three first-rate thinkers at the tops of their respective games.

We’ll be back with Outsource Talks next month (Weds Nov 16) – again, live from a conference (this time, our eagerly anticipated GBS Roadmap event in Copenhagen) – and I’ll be getting the registration link up for that event by the end of this week. Meanwhile, keep your eye on the Twitter hashtag #SIGfall16 for more amazing content from the SIG Summit – and your other eye on this very website for a very special interview, coming soon…
