Amanda Prochaska

Founder & Chief Wonder Officer at Wonder Services

Las Vegas, United States

After a career in the Fortune 500 business world and becoming a business owner myself, here is what I now know: Success only comes through the curiosity and courage to become a better leader and better person each and every day.

My story is one of adventure. Within the corporate world, I took new roles, new job opportunities, and projects to explore the unknown. By the time my oldest daughter was 10, we had moved together 10 times. Our intention was not to be nomadic, but moving gave us a whole world to explore. At 36, I decided to walk away from a Vice President role, my dream role, at MGM Resorts International to join the adventurous world of entrepreneurship. I am excited to bring my experience and knowledge to you.

HOW PROCUREMENT CAN HELP US-BASED SUPPLIERS ACCESS EMERGENCY CASH FROM THE SBA
Art of Procurement
March 26, 2020
Now that procurement professionals and organizations have absorbed the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are stable enough footing to start to serve others – including our suppliers.

Many of the programs procurement has put in place in recent years have incentives partnering with small, diverse businesses. Those disruptive companies are now at high risk of being disrupted by the pandemic, in some cases permanently.
