Buying for growth: Strategies for SMB

In this session, Molly Dobson, Country Leader UK and Ireland for Amazon Business, will lead a conversation with SMB organizations on how they are automating routine buying processes to save time and simplify operations, make better data-driven decisions using real-time analytics, and empower employees with the tools and business selection they need for work.
Fostering socially responsible procurement
Even with environmental and sustainability goals in place, many organizations do not have effective sourcing strategies or the right technology to purchase more responsibly. In this session Andrea Deichert Oswald, General Director of Procurement Operations and Supplier Diversity, will share best practices on how Union Pacific is using Amazon Business to build out a supplier diversity program that invests in the local communities where their employees live and work.
