Comic to address behaviour change in procurement

Marty Wilson, one of Australia’s best-selling authors, former Comic of the Year and current motivational speaker, will entertain the delegates at Wednesday’s CIPS Australasia Conference in Melbourne.

Wilson, whose time as a stand-up is all too evident during his change-management talks, concludes a day that explores procurement at the heart of business.

Delegates can also attend a morning panel discussion of chief procurement officers from Coca-Cola, NSW Trains and the University of Sydney, who will talk about how they indentify the important issues to bring to the board, adding more value to the business and what comes after you have made it to the board.

The Northern Territory Government’s head of procurement, Dr Jason Bingham, will present just one of the Australasian procurement case studies, where he will explain the local content push and how it has helped to create value for money, improving employment, industry and regional development, offering tangible, lasting benefits to the region.

The event is followed by an evening of drinks and dinner, to hear and celebrate this year's winners of the CIPS Australasia procurement awards, from best contribution to corporate responsibility, through most improved start-up procurement operation, to procurement and supply chain management professional of the year.

If you haven't signed up yet, don't miss this last chance to get a ticket.
