SAP Ariba Live: Inspiring Success Among Women in Business

Leading female executives set to gather for exclusive forum at premier global commerce event and chart future course for business innovation and transformation

PALO ALTO, Calif. – February 28, 2017 – Business is changing faster than ever. And as they continue to rise in the ranks of procurement, technology, finance, engineering and design, women are increasingly setting the pace. Next month, hundreds of female executives will gather at SAP Ariba Live in Las Vegas for a special forum to discuss this transformation and ways in which they can help to accelerate it. Hosted by SAP Ariba CMO Alicia Tillman, the event will feature top women in business who will share their insights and stories of success, including Lisa Skeete Tatum, Co-Founder and CEO of Landit and Michele Promaulayko, Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan and Editorial Director of Seventeen, as well as focused breakout sessions on building strong personal brands.

"Over the past two decades, women have stood up and leaned in to lower the glass ceiling. Today, they are leveraging the power of networks to drive unprecedented change across every function and industry," Tillman said. "We are pleased to be providing a forum through which these leaders can expand their communities and drive conversations that inspire true transformation in their careers and the organizations they serve. And we are thrilled to have innovative thinkers like Lisa Skeete Tatum and Michele Promaulayko join us and share the incredible stories of their success."
