The goal of The Sourcing Hero podcast is to capture the epic stories of people beating the odds and rising up in procurement. The individuals featured on the show openly share how they are creating exceptional value for their organizations and offer first-hand experiences and lessons learned throughout their careers. The conversations, guided by our host, Kelly Barner with Art of Procurement, are always full of industry insight and knowledge and touch on various topics impacting procurement.
With over 120 episodes – and rapidly approaching 20,000 downloads – the show has naturally evolved. In addition to procurement practitioners and supply chain professionals, The Sourcing Hero now features guests from a variety of industries and career paths, each with a narrative that is relatable and relevant.

“What does the idea of a sourcing hero mean to you?”
“What does heroism look like in a business context?”
