I can only describe my participation as an Invitee for the recent BDR Summit as an extraordinary experience.
Here are the reasons the Billion Dollar Roundtable has become the elite gathering of stakeholder change agents that are driving diverse business partnerships.
Invited corporations attending the Summit represent the top performers in supplier diversity on a global scale.
They have expanded the BDR tent to include LGBTQ, Veterans and the disabled community - making our goal for inclusion self-evident.
The event itself is extremely well done and not to be missed! It is educational, informative, and inspirational.
I am honored to consult with BDR leadership as an Invitee. If you were not invited, the only guarantee that you will attend next year at Google in Cupertino is to achieve one billion dollars in diverse supplier spend. For me. . .there simply is no better or more meaningful aspirational goal to ramp up our performance.
