Virginia Forum 2008 Report

After six weeks and three continents, Jon Hansen’s Fall Speaking Tour concluded on a strong note at the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Forum 2008 Conference in Hampton, VA.

Sharing the keynote spotlight with world renowned motivational speaker Julio Melara, who himself has toured with the likes of Zig Ziglar, Steven Forbes and Secretary of State Colin Powell, Jon delivered an energetic and impassioned talk to 400 procurement professionals.

Focusing on a global view of the Commonwealth’s successful eVA initiative, the keynote as well as two breakout sessions on the Changing Role of Today’s Purchasing Professional won rave reviews from attendees. 

Some of the comments that have already been received by conference organizers include.    

“Thanks, Jon, we appreciate your efforts in helping to make the Forum a big success; we’ve started to sort through evaluations and a preliminary scan shows high praise for your sessions.  You brought a perspective that opened a lot of eyes to Virginia’s achievements and to the direction the profession is heading.  Attendees are asking for additional advanced sessions at future Forums in finance, strategic planning and the like to help them become more strategic role players in their organizations.”

“I’m still hearing great comments about you and your sessions today.  You were a GREAT hit with the folks at the conference.”

Jon’s series of conferences and seminars have garnered critical acclaim for the unique and insightful perspectives they provide regarding the evolution of the modern supply chain practice.
