If, indeed, the key to success is building and maintaining strong relationships based on trust, then Ms. Kuykendall has turned that key to open and enter through the doors of American Medical Depot, one of the nation’s largest diversified health care distribution and information technology companies. Her relationship with the 10th largest medical supply distribution company in the United States by size, began more than 20 years ago. As President of Government Business, Kuykendall is responsible for the P&L of the largest sector of the company’s business. The relationship key was strategically matched with her senior level organizational leadership positions working with entrepreneurs in start-up companies, governmental agencies at the Federal and State levels as well as fortune 50 companies.
The 11th Annual WBEC-West Strategic Procurement Opportunity Conference is designed to attract participation from corporate America, government entities, community partners and women business owners. The focus of the conference is to ensure women’s business enterprises (WBEs) have meaningful opportunities to connect with potential clients (corporate, government and other WBEs) as well as strengthen relationships with existing clients. The 11th Annual WBEC-West Strategic Procurement Opportunity Conference celebrates women in business and the corporate members that have made the past 10 years a success.
Ms. Kuykendall’s keynote is slated to be just one of many conference highlights because she is well-known for her highly anticipated impactful and entertaining delivery of powerful messages to female entrepreneurs and corporate executives.
