About the Program

Enhancing Spend Visibility During Times of Disruption is an invitation-only, video-based virtual event limited to Finance and Procurement leaders from Consumer Products companies across the United States, who will convene with three goals in mind:

  • Learn from insightful conversations led by our moderated panel
  • Participate in interactive breakout room video discussions
  • Build meaningful new connections with a diverse group of thinkers

About the Content

The Consumer Products industry is dealing with an unprecedented level of change. Unstable supply chains, food safety concerns, electronic contactless payments, and digital distribution channels are all examples of real-time disruption of the status quo. Finance and procurement leaders have an opportunity to lead their companies into the new normal including finding new ways to keep the organization’s cash flow moving. As a result, budgeting needs to be prioritized. In an ideal world, this prioritization is based on full spend visibility: when you know precisely where your organization’s money is going, you can minimize maverick spending and increase spend under management. Complete visibility across all flows of money, goods, and services around the world is required today more than ever. 

Discussion Topics

  • Why the intelligent use of data is the foundation for visibility and better decision making
  • Using technology to better understand and proactively manage supply chain risk
  • How to identify opportunities for rapid savings
  • Understanding the opportunity to step up and lead their organization through and beyond the crisis
  • Case studies that demonstrate how finance, procurement and supplier ecosystems are used for greater visibility
  • How you’re managing and dealing with supply chain disruptions, the move toward digitization, and the increased spotlight on finance leaders during the current global crisis?
