#PIOpenTalk Is The Place To State Your Case Starting With Big Ideas Summit Radio Series

Posted on September 6, 2017


Starting with today’s Procurious Big Ideas Summit interview – which is the first in a series of segments in which I will be talking with the speakers from this year’s event in Chicago, I have launched the #PIOpenTalk hashtag on Twitter.

The reason I created the hashtag is to enable (or empower) my readers and listeners to quickly and conveniently share their thoughts on any post or radio show topic or for that matter any subject that moves them to do so. Rants are also acceptable.

Regarding today’s segment, I welcomed to the show Justin Crump who is the CEO of Sibylline Ltd, which is an international intelligence and risk analysis consultancy based in the UK. Justin’s focus is on international jihadist terrorism, strategic affairs, military evolution, and intelligence operations worldwide. He will be in Chicago at the Big Ideas Summit talking about the disruptive forces that will impact procurement professionals in the coming year.

Just an aside, Justin was running a bit behind schedule, so that provided me with ten minutes at the beginning of the show to offer a little bit of commentary on recent industry events and news. I may have given my thoughts on a recent Hackett Group Report as well as some Coupa news – ideal grist for the #PIOpenTalk mill.

Anyway, the interview yielded some nuggets of insight into the disconnect between awareness and organization “willingness” to do something tangible to deal with risks.

I must warn you that due to technical challenges regarding Justin’s phone, there are a few short gaps in which he doesn’t come through as clearly as I would have liked. Technical problems notwithstanding, the majority of his dialogue can be heard and is well worth the listen.

Fortunately or unfortunately depending on your perspective, I came through loud and clear.

Remember, share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #PIOpenTalk

PS; My next guest on the Procurious Big Ideas Summit radio series is Graham Wright. Graham is the Vice President of Global Procurement for IBM.
