If you are not aware of Procurious, it is an online business network dedicated to procurement professionals.  Online networking and social media are becoming an important part of a procurement leaders’ tool set.  The opportunities this creates for procurement is a key theme in this episode.

As a Founder of three procurement related businesses – The Faculty, The Source and now Procurious – Tania is a leader in our community.  In this episode, we discuss a wide range of topics, from the impact that nano-niching will have on the procurement careers of the future, to the importance of social media in winning the war for talent.

    Very interesting website and certainly a great platform for highlighting procurement related topics. Best wishes on the launch and for your continued success.
    By the way, this podcast has some technical problems. I tried few times and then gave up. You may want to check it out and see if it can be fixed. Omar
