It’s a New Day for SPARK 2020: Keynote Speaker Announcement

It’s been an exciting time for us here at Scout RFP. If you haven’t already heard, the Scout Village just got bigger. About 11,800 people bigger, in fact. We are beyond thrilled to join Workday, a leader in enterprise cloud applications, and we feel there is no better way to ring in this new and exciting era than to announce Aneel Bhusri, Co-Founder and CEO of Workday, as a keynote speaker at SPARK 2020

An Enterprise Software Visionary

If co-founding Workday wasn’t enough, Aneel has also held multiple leadership positions at PeopleSoft, served on the board of directors for several companies including Intel, Pure Storage and Okta, and is currently an advisory partner at Greylock, a leading venture capitalist firm. With more than 20 years of experience innovating in the enterprise software industry, Aneel will take the SPARK stage for a fireside chat in February where he will share his unique insights on leadership, teamwork, and his vision for a procurement-driven future. 

Sourcing First at SPARK 2020

Once viewed as ancillary organizations, sourcing and procurement are now pillars of the enterprise. At SPARK, find out how sourcing can leverage innovation and technology to illuminate the path forward for modern business. Learn how to fortify the procurement pillar in your company and ultimately position yourself as a strategic partner to achieve maximum impact.
