Supply Chain Now Expands Lineup to Increase Coverage of Procurement


ATLANTA - Supply Chain Now, the voice of supply chain, today announced the addition of a new monthly program, Dial P for Procurement, to a growing digital media portfolio focused on global supply chain innovation and digital transformation.

With this new series, the Supply Chain Now program portfolio expands to serve the corporate procurement community and features the experience, insights, and expertise of top procurement industry influencer Kelly Barner.

Kelly Barner is the Owner and Managing Director of Buyers Meeting Point and is one of the most prolific writers in procurement. During her nearly 2-decade career in procurement, she has been a practitioner, a consultant, and an independent thought leader. Kelly also serves as the General Manager at Art of Procurement and Business Survey Chair for the ISM-New York Report on Business, and has co-authored three books: ‘Supply Market Intelligence for Procurement Professionals’, ‘Procurement at a Crossroads’, and 'Finance Unleashed.’

Dial P for Procurement will address the trends and topics of greatest concern to Chief Procurement Officers and procurement teams, and the individuals in the enterprise tasked with converting the capabilities of the companies in their company’s supply chain into a distinct and lasting competitive advantage.

“I have always appreciated the style and substance of Supply Chain Now’s content and believe that the live, dynamic nature of their programming is exactly what aspirational procurement professionals and teams need,” said Kelly Barner. “The field of procurement is rising in strategic importance and evolving at a rate that justifies nothing less than direct audience engagement on the most critical topics of the day. That is what we will aim to deliver through the Dial P for Procurement program.”

With this new program, Supply Chain Now brings additional topics and perspectives to a community of over one million with exclusive content including podcasts, livestreams, vlogs, webinars, blogs and more. “As we’ve continued to expand our programming, our community has been demanding more Procurement leadership & best practices-focused content and conversations,” says Supply Chain Now CEO & Founder, Scott Luton. “In my mind, there’s not a better, more trusted person to lead those conversations than Kelly Barner. Our team is thrilled to collaborate further with Kelly, building on our long-standing partnership to better serve our global audience.”
