Let’s Talk Supplier Data: TealBook’s Most Impactful Events of 2021

With the world still on its head from the global pandemic — and the supply chain issues that were compounded by it — this year was not one to sit idly by and keep valuable information to ourselves. TealBook rolled up our sleeves and got to work hosting and participating in events to help others in our industry address issues they were facing and understand the importance of having a supplier data foundation to support every procurement decision across their organization.

Below are some of the most impactful events and webinars to watch to gain insights necessary to achieve empowered and transformative procurement strategies.

On Solid Ground: Building the Data Foundation for Agile Procurement | Wakefield-Partnered Webinars

At the start of the year, we released our On Solid Ground: Building the Data Foundation for Agile Procurement resource with Wakefield Research. To give our customers and other procurement professionals a more in-depth look at the content, we held a series of webinars in which we took a deep dive into the data we found and heard input from industry experts on the importance of supplier data when it comes to maintaining an agile supply chain.

Joining a host of industry professionals at the three-day conference, TealBook CEO + Founder, Stephany Lapierre, and Senior Partner of Wakefield Research, Nathan Richter, took to the stage at ISM World 2021 to discuss the real importance of having strong supplier data to support your organization’s procurement strategies.

Can You Reshore Your Supply Chain? | TealBook at Procurement Foundry 2021

While many organizations realized the challenges that come along with having offshored supply chains and are considering bringing their suppliers closer to home, there are still many concerns over whether or not that is physically possible.

In a discussion with Procurement Leaders, Mike Cheny, retired P&G executive and board member, and Stephany Lapierre offer a progressive and data-driven approach to reshoring their suppliers as well as the benefits of shortening supply chains, the key factors of designing a resilient supply chain, and more.

Prepare for the Next Supply Chain Crisis | Agility Webinar

It’s not a matter of if another supply chain crisis will occur — it’s a matter of when it will happen.
