Speaking Engagements

A personalized speaking engagement can help elevate the importance — and urgency — of supply chain and procurement issues among executives and staff.

For example, in one engagement, Greybeard's president addressed 180 senior managers of a Fortune 150 company on the topic of "An Executive Roadmap to Improving Profitability and Shareholder Value."


"… Bob’s talk hit the mark… His approach and style were pragmatic, empirically validated through best practice examples, and well received by the ITT senior management team."

Stephen R. Loranger
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer 
ITT Corporation


In another example, Greybeard's president addressed the global procurement leadership team at a major company on the topic of how “Leading Edge Practices in Supply Management.”


"… Attendees commented that it was obvious the speaker has practical experience leading transformation…  I highly recommend Bob as a speaker."
