COVID forced an unprecedented shift in the global workforce from their offices to remote work environments. IACCM research indicates that as the transition occurred, an overwhelming majority of our members were properly equipped to get their jobs done at home. But the physical set-up was the tip of the iceberg. TASK's focus on Remote Work Environment & Balance now digs deeper to consider the broader issues that impact personal balance and professional commercial success from your home.

On Monday, June 22nd, commercial leaders from across the globe discuss their experiences as their teams moved into remote environments and their plans for the future.  Hear first-hand experiences, lessons learned, insights, best practices that will help shape your decision-making for your work environment in the “new normal”.

Technology is changing the role of the Contract and Commercial Management (CCM) professional so that 60% of what we do today will be replaced by machines in the next 5 years. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. As a seasoned CCM professional, I've got practical experience of how to drive systemic change in people, systems, and processes to deliver real business value. That is what gets me excited every day.
