Welcome to my Blog

Hi there, my name is George Vrakas. You can find a bit more about me here. This is my personal blog.

Over time I have spent considerable time developing, discussing and reflecting on material that relate to Procurement, Team Development, Personal Development, Productivity, Leadership, as well as, deliberating on the impact of future technologies and trends on the future of supply chain and the future of procurement.

Discussing on these concepts with friends and colleagues I found that there was much interest for information and concepts that are less commonly known. Tools developed were thus shared in an adhoc way. Hence, I thought that by creating a blog, I could upload some of the most interesting information and share my journey, experiences and tools (past and future)  so, as to possibly benefit others.

If you want to learn more about these concepts then this blog is for you.

My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that is drawn from my experience and also to share tools that you can put to work in your personal and professional life.

I intend to blog at least once a week. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS.

I am looking forward to making this journey with you.

Thanks,

George
