Next year’s procurement breakfast session schedule is filling up and includes topics such as procuring for broader outcomes, sourcing for family violence programmes and developing a procurement strategy for New Plymouth District Council.
Held every month in Wellington, procurement breakfast sessions are an opportunity to hear directly from colleagues on new approaches, successful projects and current trends.
Mark Richards, Director Capability Services says this year’s sessions have been a huge success with engaging speakers talking about a range of interesting topics from human rights to detecting bid rigging in sourcing. Next year’s line-up is already looking to be just as successful.
“Thank you to all our speakers for 2018 who shared their experiences with the rest of the procurement community. We are currently looking for speakers for our 2019 round, so if you or someone you know has an initiative worth sharing or a new way of doing things, please get in touch,” says Mark.
The breakfast sessions are conveniently scheduled so you can come in on your way to work to learn and connect with others. Put these dates in your calendar now and we’ll follow up with an invitation closer to the time. If you would like to be added to our events mailing list, or would like to present about your initiative, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
