If you joined us for Categorypalooza 2022, you helped make it our must successful event ever. We were joined by over 700 attendees, and they were treated to an extraordinary day of actionable thought leadership from experts and practitioners.
If you weren’t able to join us live, there’s no need to feel left out. All of the sessions are now available on demand here.
Catalysts for Supplier Competition: How to Get Suppliers to Fight for Your Business
This was our keynote session, and Fine Tune CEO Rich Ham brought his A game. He spoke frankly about why he believes there are still opportunities for procurement to retain – or even recreate – their leverage with suppliers despite today’s economic challenges.
Procurement for all seasons: Being prepared for ever changing market conditions
We opened the event with a focus on market intelligence and how it can be used to generate insight that offers actionable value to the business. Procurement IQ’s Embry Davis and Ben Kempenich did an excellent job connecting the dots between the information procurement has access to and the kinds of value we can deliver.
Improving the Flexibility of Your Category Management Skills
SpendPro and marketing category expert Steve Trussell introduced us to the PACE framework, which stands for Primary, Alternate, Contingency, and Emergency. Not only will it help procurement be ready to handle what we least expect, it can come in handy while planning complex category strategies.
