Source One will sponsor the Procurious Big Ideas Summit and share insights in a thought leadership presentation.

CHICAGO, IL, August 14, 2019 /Neptune100/ — September 18th, Source One’s spend management experts will take the stage at the Procurious Big Ideas Summit to discuss the ways Procurement teams across the globe are looking past cost savings to make a bigger, more strategic impact. Titled Procurement Can . . . , Source One’s presentation will call on real-life case studies to paint a picture of the function’s immense value. It is just one of the inspiring presentations attendees can expect from the high-impact, single-day event.

Procurious is committed to elevating the Procurement function and empowering professionals to reach their full potential. This year’s Chicago Big Ideas Summit will serve this mission by offering an agenda that focuses on cutting-edge solutions to Supply Management’s most pressing challenges. Source One’s presentation, hosted by Director Diego De la Garza, will highlight Procurement’s capacity to fundamentally change businesses. He will share stories from throughout his career and detail Source One engagements that have helped clients revolutionize patient treatment, mitigate global supply risks, and build competitive advantages.

“Everyone who’ll attend the Big Ideas Summit this year is aware that Procurement can do more than generate savings,” says De la Garza. “They might not recognize, however, just how much the function can do. Throughout my presentation, I’ll describe some of the eye-catching projects Source One and its team have carried out over the last several decades. My hope is that these will provide irrefutable evidence that Procurement is worth investing in.”

Last year, the Big Ideas Summit welcomed experts from industry leaders like GlaxoSmithKline and Dell. Addressing ethical sourcing, the digital revolution, and the next-generation of talent management, this year’s speakers should prove just as impactful.

Later this fall, Source One will attend additional networking events including Consero’s Procurement and Strategic Sourcing Executive Roundtable. The end-to-end spend management provider will also host its annual happy hour for Chicago-area professionals.
