099: Make an Impact that Matters: Key Takeaways from The Procurement Revolution

The Procurement Revolution is now in the books! Kelly Barner (my co-organizer) and I were thrilled with how the event panned out. We had 40 revolutionaries, over 50 pieces of content and five live Q&A interviews throughout the week – and over 1.7 MILLION shares on Twitter.

We learned a ton from the things that went well, and the things that didn’t. One of my regrets was that I wasn’t able to dedicate as much time as I would have liked to pull together all the disparate submissions into some key call’s to action.

So, what I thought I would do today is to share four different takeaways that I took from all the great submissions that we received.
