The WBEC West Annual Strategic Procurement Opportunity Conference is always a favorite event to attend of ours at Connect the Dots Promotions. The 2018 event was the 15th Annual Conference and it did not disappoint, but first, a little background. The WBEC 15th Annual Strategic Procurement Opportunity Conference is designed to provide attendees with ‘the resources needed to build sustainable relationships with procurement and supplier diversity professionals in order to grow your business to the next level of success.’
What was the WBEC 15th Annual Strategic Procurement Opportunity Conference Like?
Once you sat down at the table there was everything needed for a delicious meal. Each table had to nominate a chef and a sous chef and then the table worked together to make three different pasta dishes. Not only did we have a blast at our own table but it was fun to see what others came up with at their tables and just how creative everyone was! We loved this idea and think it would be a great option for corporate outings to build community and foster teamwork.
What We Learned at the WBEC West Conference
We had opportunities to attend workshops on how to stand out with corporations. We also attended a fashion show with other WBE’s. On the last day of the conference, we had one-on-one meetings with corporates. We hope that our impression was positive and look forward to seeing what opportunities may come from these more intimate one-on-one meetings.
Final Thoughts on the WBEC 15th Annual Strategic Procurement Opportunity Conference
As always, the 2018 WBEC-West Conference was fun, informative, and full of opportunities to grow your business. We love seeing other women do what they do best, learn from their experiences and knowledge, and encourage each other on the path to growing our businesses. All-in-all, Connect the Dots Promotions was there to connect to with other WBEs (Women Business Enterprises and to do what we love – grow our network and CONNECT THE DOTS!
