DENVER, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IQNavigator, the leading provider of services procurement and external workforce solutions to Global 2000 companies, will hold its annual North American IQNsiders conference in Boston on October 3-5 and will hold its inaugural European IQNsiders conference October 31-November 2 in Amsterdam. IQNsiders are invitation-only conferences for IQNavigator's customers and partners with intensive programs of workshops, presentations and networking sessions that enable participants to learn and share the latest strategies and best practices for services procurement and workforce management. The two events will be hosted by IQNavigator clients at facilities in Boston and Amsterdam where their headquarters are located.
"IQNsiders is a unique event in our industry providing unparalleled networking with procurement and HR executives from some of the best known brands in the world," said Lou Andreozzi, Chief Executive Officer and President for IQNavigator. "In addition, we structure the events for collaboration, strategizing on industry trends and sharing best practices from real-world case studies featuring the sharpest minds in the services procurement and external workforce management field."
The keynote address at the Boston event in early October will be given by Jason Busch, Founder and Managing Director of Azul Partners and editor of the popular industry blog, Spend Matters.
"This is a truly dynamic time for the services procurement industry as the economy continues to trudge along and as uncertainty looms in markets ranging from Europe to Asia to our own backyard. Still, companies must map out workforce strategies aimed at growth rather than just survival," said Jason Busch. "Global organizations are assessing how to strike the right balance between full-time employees, contingent workers and other procured services, and the timing of the IQNsiders events couldn't be better for bringing together many of the leaders in the market to share, learn and collaborate. I'm excited to be a part of the conversation by speaking at the event and I look forward to seeing everyone in Boston."
