Webinar: Energy & Utilities: How Procurement Is Navigating the Forces of Change

webinar description

The global Energy and Utilities (E&U) sector is characterized by several new and powerful market dynamics – nationalism, policy changes, reduced regulations and lower corporate taxes, to name a few. Historical market leaders are being edged out of their spots by new challengers. These forces will shape and drive procurement strategies at E&U companies in the years to come.

What do they mean for your business? What are the implications for specific categories, such as oil, gas, nuclear, wind and solar? And what steps can you take to successfully navigate these changes?

This webinar features GEP's top E&U specialists, Stephen Bucalo and Jason Allukian, who will evaluate the impact of these current and emerging market dynamics on sourcing and procurement in this sector. They will also share insights with regard to solutions, strategies, programs and goals that will help procurement organizations better manage their assets and anticipate future challenges.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • To hear industry experts discuss current and emerging market dynamics

  • To understand how these dynamics affect sourcing and procurement in this sector

  • To hear insights that will help procurement organizations better manage their assets and anticipate future challenges
