She will further discuss the importance of understanding organizational structure, how direct and indirect procurement play an essential role in an organization, and best practices for navigating in a complex and uncertain global business environment.

Mary Ann is an advertising/marketing, global supply chain/operations, and sales leader with experience in consumer packaged goods, retail, telecommunications, non-profit, entertainment, financial services and advertising.
