When I asked the Strategic Sourcing & Procurement LinkedIn group members to suggest topics for upcoming calls, there were a lot of requests pertaining to indirect spend. So, this Friday, the group's July member conference call will be an open discussion on indirect categories (marketing and consulting will definitely be covered - if you have other suggestions, leave them in the comments below), strategies and insights from the trenches.


As always, you need to be a member of the Strategic Sourcing & Procurement group in order to participate (and get the dial in info). Request to join here.


We have a few category experts lined up and I'm sure we'll get a healthy cross section of the group's 18,000 members. Should be a great, collaborative experience and I hope you can join us.
