Supplier Diversity is all about providing opportunities to minority, women and veteran-owned suppliers, and the small businesses that make up the United States landscape. It is all about creating opportunities for suppliers who bring ideas, creativity and great products and services to corporate America.
The Hubbel Group specializes in helping these companies present their best business case to the Fortune 500 and government entities. We also help Tier One companies understand the value of doing business with minority, women-owned and veteran-owned firms, and through our partnerships we help these corporations develop their supplier diversity programs including Tier One and Tier Two.
Our highly praised programs bring out the best in the suppliers we train, and help them get to the next step the procurement process by helping them focus on their top product or service. We work with both the corporate and Council communities throughout NMSDC and WBENC. We understand the unique challenges faced by suppliers because our principal is a WBE herself, selling successfully to the Fortune 100 every day.
Julia Hubbel is also a Certified Supplier Diversity Professional, which means that she fully understands the corporate needs and requirements of suppliers. She can provide the insider’s viewpoint of how to be successful at a trade show or matchmaker.
Our programs, seminars and keynotes are fast-paced, content rich and highly interactive. Julia is a popular motivational speaker so her programs are engaging and fun, and packaged with a punch.
