Become a DPW Expert Member

Digital procurement transformation is messy, confusing, and it’s hard. There is a need for diverse perspectives from topic experts who understand the unique challenges associated with leading digital procurement at the top of a large company.

DPW100 has been developed as a community to help procurement organisations get from digital strategy to execution faster. It is designed to promote innovative thinking, challenge conventional wisdom, and develop new ideas about the future of procurement.

DPW Expert is a platform for thought leaders like yourself to share your expertise, impact your industries, and represent the DPW brand. As a DPW Expert, you’ll build credibility by being published in DPW100 and outside of it.

Our expert members are a small, select group of people, vetted by DPW. Our experts have proven expertise in their fields (evidenced by published articles, talks, citations in the media, etc.) and agree to contribute to and participate in the activities of the DPW community on a regular basis.

Examples of how experts can contribute

EXPERT PANELS

Share insights with minimal time commitment

DPW Expert Panels are the easiest way to get published regularly with minimal time commitment.

Every month, we pose questions tailored to your industry. These open and close on a rolling basis so everyone gets a chance to chime in. Questions can typically be answered in three to five sentences – less time than it takes to compose a tweet!

Once you’ve submitted an answer, the DPW content team chooses diverse answers to publish in a roundup-style post that includes contributor headshots.

VIDEO PUBLISHING

Share 5-15 min video expert insights

Experts can record and publish their own video insights directly to the platform, and publish directly to rooms or channels. No need to install special software. If you have a webcam, you’re all set.

POST AUTHORING

Write full-length articles

Create a post in minutes with our Intuitive editor.

The main guidelines for a DPW Expert article are simple. Your article should be:
