Consero’s Summer 2015 Procurement & Strategic Sourcing Forum to Address Navigating Compliance in Emerging Markets

Forum to Be Held July 26-28 in Newport Beach, Calif.

BETHESDA, MD.- (July 15, 2015) – How can procurement executives mitigate legal and compliance risks when doing business in emerging markets? Consero Group, an international leader in orchestrating high-level, invitation-only events for senior executives, will address this question and more at its Summer 2015 Procurement & Strategic Sourcing Forum. The Forum will be held July 26–28 at The Hyatt Regency in Newport Beach, Calif.

“Today’s procurement executives face distinct challenges and opportunities beyond the pursuit of cost savings,” said Paul Mandell, Founder & CEO of Consero. “Consero’s Summer 2015 Procurement & Strategic Sourcing Forum will bring together an intimate group of senior corporate executives to explore how procurement and supply chain professionals can strengthen the positive impact of their role on the future of the business.”

“The Forum will examine how Chief Procurement and Supply Chain Officers can proactively collaborate within a business to support entry into a new market or industry,” said Jessica Druckman, Founder & SVP of Program Development at Consero.  “During our interactive KnowledgeBridge sessions, executives will construct solutions based on complex scenarios, such as entering strategic partnerships with state-owned companies, engaging local suppliers and other third parties and working with governments that are developing and/or lack transparent processes.”

Additional topics will include:

  • Navigating Compliance in a Highly Regulated Landscape: This session will address how organizations’ views on cost avoidance and opportunity cost impact the development and enforcement of their compliance plans, as well as how to work with a business’ legal department to ensure compliance strategies are aligned.
  • A Good Defense: Improving Your Risk-Mitigation Plan: In this session, executives will explore how organizations can classify, monitor and mitigate different types of risk, as well as what kinds of disaster-relief modeling can be put in place to protect the supply base in the event of natural disaster or geopolitical turmoil.
  • Bottom Line Is Top of Mind: Unlocking New Areas for Cost Savings: This session will identify what new, non-traditional strategies can have a positive impact on the bottom line, as well as how to leverage tail-spend and ensure executives’ leadership teams are engaged and supportive of the strategic financial vision of the procurement organization.
