Be a Business Silo Solver with Danelle M. Brown

By Kelly Barner | August 9, 2023

It takes a wide range of skills, experiences, and backgrounds to put a company in a leadership position, and yet most professionals feel most comfortable talking to their peers – people from the same function who share their perspectives, motivations and language. If we can keep our minds open to new ideas and possibilities, however, there is no limit to what we can achieve.

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Danelle M. Brown. Danelle has over two decades worth of experience in design and sustainability, a combination that is highly effective in today’s business climate. Perhaps more interestingly, her graduate degree is in the history of STEM, a specialized program that combined science and technology with liberal arts and the humanities.


In this interview, Danelle brings together a wide range of topics and teachings to illustrate:

  • The importance of “silo solving”
  • Why procurement and supply chain professionals may not have to decode the whole alphabet of sustainability frameworks to have a positive impact
  • How much it is possible to achieve through continued learning and development
