Daryl serves as both a Faculty member and Executive Advisor for SIG University. Additionally, he is quad-certified through SIG University, having completed four programs:
Certified Sourcing Professional (CSP)
Certified Supplier Management Professional (CSMP)
Certified Third Party Risk Management Professional (C3PRMP)
Certified Intelligent Automation Professional (CIAP)
Daryl chose to serve as faculty and an advisor, stating: “I am such an advocate for SIG University, both as an alum having completed all four programs and now as faculty. One of the most appealing things about these programs, aside from the exceptional curriculum and learning, is the flexible and inclusive classroom environment. In a virtual world, flexibility is so very important. The CSP program allows you to balance work and life, while obtaining a wealth of new knowledge throughout the program. As faculty, I enjoy connecting with procurement professionals, empathizing with their challenges and understanding not just what questions they have but why they were asking them.”
