What does procurement need to know about the “circular economy”?

...a lot, it turns out. Many people we've spoken with haven't even heard the phrase. But have no fear: we're hosting a webinar on the topic shortly after Valentine's Day and we're even making it The Breakfast Club-themed for all you John Hughes enthusiasts. Here's more from Jason Busch: "The circular economy is here to stay (but we bet you don’t even know what it is). Don’t worry. We didn’t either. But we spent the past Saturday afternoon in detention studying. Like the cast of The Breakfast Club, regardless of what walk of procurement, finance, or supply chain life you come, it pays to come together on such an important topic – even if you ignored it until now. And we promise a much kinder (and captivating) show than the teachers at Shermer High School can put on."

We'd love if you'd join us for Lessons From The Procurement Breakfast Club: Cramming for the Circular Economy Exam, on Wednesday, February 18 from 1-2pm Central. (Out of your time zone? Have no fear: register anyway and we'll send you the slides and recording).
