Marketing Procurement is what Magid has a passion for. If he had to do it all over again, there are few things he would like to do differently.  Your story may be similar to his story of a self-made Marketing Procurement leader. But does it have to be for the next generation of professionals? It's a journey of "falling into" Marketing Procurement function by chance. Then "surviving" its complexity using resilience and transferable skills. Finally, "thriving" into the Marketing Procurement world; acquiring behaviors, competencies, and influence that set him up for success as a business leader. It's a journey in which those who enjoy freedom can thrive. It's also a journey that ought to be better structured to benefit the largest number of talents.

What sets Marketing Procurement apart from the rest of Procurement?  This sets the stage by laying out a few questions we'll answer with this podcast.Rate (5 stars), Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts & Feel Free to invite others to join our Marketing Procurement Community.
