With subjects like commissioning social services, debriefing suppliers and dealing with intellectual property, this year’s line-up of procurement breakfast sessions has something for everyone.
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 there’s a huge depth of knowledge among our procurement colleagues and these sessions are an opportunity to share knowledge and learn from each other.
“Agencies have some great initiatives in place, and many are developing new ways of doing things that it’s great to hear about. The breakfast sessions are conveniently scheduled so you can come in on your way to work to learn and connect with others,” says Mark.
The procurement breakfast sessions now have a schedule up until later this year. Pop 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.
