This year’s procurement knowledge hours schedule is filling up and includes topics such as Marketplace online, supporting Tuhoe to become responsible for social services and an update from The Southern Initiative.
For 2020 we are holding seven procurement knowledge hours in Wellington and three in Auckland; they’re an opportunity to hear directly from colleagues on new approaches, successful projects and current trends.
Coll O’Connor, Senior Capability Development Advisor says “last year’s sessions proved to be highly informational, entertaining and engaging, and continued the building and strengthening of professional procurement networks”.
The knowledge hours in Wellington are conveniently scheduled so you can come in on your way to work to learn and connect with others. With our Auckland knowledge hours, we have scheduled them over the lunch time, so a great time to bring your lunch while listening to these presentations.
Put these dates in your calendar now and we will 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, email the Procurement team.
