Procurement breakfast sessions
Breakfast sessions are engaging, thought-provoking presentations on hot topics in procurement today. After each presentation, attendees have the opportunity to delve deeper into topics and have specific questions addressed in question-and-answer sessions. This monthly event offers an informal way for procurers to increase their knowledge and skills.
Who should attend?
Breakfast sessions are open to any procurement practitioner in the New Zealand public sector. Sessions are held in Wellington.
