Inspiration in the Face of Change






Inspiration in the Face of Change


20/20 is the medical notation for “perfect visual acuity”, i.e., the ability to see what is in front of you with clarity and accuracy to a fixed standard. This notation could be considered a bit ironic when we consider the year 2020. The world has changed and we must adapt to regain our visual acuity even though new standards are still being established. We did not imagine what 2020 was going to be. Dramatic disruption demands dramatic solutions and it has inspired us to create a new immersive series of virtual events - Vibe - Vision, Ideas, Belief, Energy - that will support our success traveling the blurry road ahead. IACCM along with its 70,000 members are uniquely positioned to bring together the people and the organizations that are redefining and reimagining commerce.

In this TASK topic, Inspiration in the Face of Change, we focus on our Vibe initiatives as a core source of inspiration for our member community. Vibe is IACCM's virtual events portfolio which includes a specially curated set of inspirational keynote speakers via Vibe Talks, Optimism Cafe Podcasts and our forth-coming virtual conference - Vibe Summit!


Vibe Summit

Commercial Innovation...or Inspiration?

Commercial innovation lies at the heart of human progress. It is through commercial innovation that we have created the conditions for successful invention, the framework for trade, the access to goods and services.

Innovation is clearly fundamental for any successful commercial and contracting practitioner. But we must accept that we are not all innovators; in most cases, the important point is that we encourage and welcome innovation, that we do not resist the benefits of change.
