CIPS NZ Conference 2020 - Moving the procurement profession forward
28 Places Left Booking ends: 26 Oct 2020

COVID-19 NOTICE  | CIPS New Zealand Conference has been re-scheduled to 29 October 2020. CIPS is following the current guidance from local governments and the World Health Organisation. Our priority during this time is the safety of our event attendees and our teams, and we will continue to closely monitor the development of the COVID-19 and any potential impact on our event. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Bigger ask, bigger task: the demands on procurement organisations is not only greater, but also more complex than ever before.

 

A new set of values has been defined to capture what procurement and supply chain management need to deliver for business which encompass a wider spectrum of activities: generate long-term cost efficiencies; mitigate a whole range of risks from continuity of supply to crisis management; deliver innovation through vertical collaboration in the supply chains; embed social and sustainable outcomes; ensure an array of diversity metrics are met – from gender balance to inclusion and local sourcing; safeguard the implementation of ethical business conducts, and much, much more.

 

And all of this takes place in a context where technological advancements push the boundaries of what’s possible, changing and in some instances entirely redefining traditional business models; younger generation making their way, loudly and demandingly, in the world of work; an international economic and political environment experiencing unprecedented levels of uncertainty; and a planet that requires better care than we are giving it right now.

 

The conference will explore those themes in the context of moving procurement and supply management forward to attract the future workforce, embrace changes, develop deeper commercial acumen and evolve the current skill sets to ensure the profession can deliver on the greater expectations that are being asked on practitioners today.

 

Additional 10% discount is available to group of 5+ attendees - Please complete the registration form.

    Speakers

    Dr Michelle Dickinson (MNZM)

    Dr Michelle Dickinson (MNZM)

    Nanotechnologist and Science Educator

    Motivational Keynote Speaker 

    TOPIC: The future is exciting

    Technology is quietly taking over some of the jobs that humans once did and isn't it great! No more washing your clothes by hand or riding your horse to work. While some of these advancements are physically obvious, others are more subtle but also arguably more powerful. With large data-sets and inventory management within the procurement and supply chain management field technology can bring huge benefits to help informed decisions be made more easily. Sustainable sourcing as well as real-time inventory tracking and restocking are two examples of how technology can work hard behind the scenes so you can get back to the important stuff - people. Dr Michelle Dickinson – a nanotechnologist has over 20 years’ experience in creating new technologies and has watched old jobs die and new ones be created. She will take you on a journey of where the data predicts procurement is going and what human skills will be valued in the future to help you prepare today.

    BIO - Dr Michelle Dickinson (MNZM) is a passionate researcher and teacher with a love of science and engineering. Michelle has made it her life mission to make science and engineering fun and accessible for all through many different media platforms including: Authoring bestselling books The Kitchen Science Cookbook and No 8 Recharged. Hosting and co-creating TV shows Nanogirl and the imaginauts and The Kitchen Science Cookbook. Creating and hosting top charting podcasts Nanogirl’s Great Science Adventures and Stupid Questions For Scientists.

    With a PhD in Biomedical and Materials Engineering Michelle has combined her interests to give her a unique insight into how nature and technology can learn from each other for scientific developments.

    As co-founder of Nanogirl Labs Ltd and an honorary academic in Engineering at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, Michelle has always followed her dreams and never let traditional stereotypes scare her.

    Awarded Member of New Zealand Order of Merit Michelle was winner of the Women of Influence award for science and innovation, awarded the Sir Peter Blake Leadership award and was winner of the Prime Ministers Science Media Communication Prize and the New Zealand Association of Scientists Science Communicators Award.

    Michelle thinks that science should be open, transparent and a topic of conversation over the dinner table, not just the lab bench. Her vision is to create positive role models in the world that our children can aspire to be like and ensuring that everyone has access to learning about science and how things work, no-matter what your age or education level.

    With this belief she is passionate about creating new ways for the public to interact with science including her television appearances, live Theatre Science Shows, and science communication videos.

    Michelle loves a challenge, whether it’s her favourite sports of kitesurfing, martial arts and mountain biking, or working towards finding a new scientific or engineering solution.

    Craig Johnstone Craig Johnstone

    Craig Johnstone Craig Johnstone

    Relationships Manager - New ZealandCIPS

    STREAM 1: Leveraging SRM to boost performance and reduce risk

    Research indicates that buying organisations report that nearly half of all potential value from supply contracts (and associated relationships) isn’t being realised. Sellers report a figure closer to two thirds.

    Whilst organisational capabilities in Strategy Development and Sourcing are either mature or clearly mapped for improvement, the effective implementation and management of associated contracts and supply relationships remains a significant area of untapped potential.

    In this presentation Craig will proceed to share 10 key recommendations from his experiences which are intended to help organisations either as they begin to focus their efforts in this space or, proceed to build on the foundations already established.

    BIO - Craig comes to CIPS with +25 years of global procurement experience gained both through line roles and consulting assignments within more than 40 organisations including Ford Motor Company, Microsoft, UK Treasury, GlaxoSmithKline, Fonterra, AT, and most recently Watercare. His experiences range from owning the development and implementation of global category management strategies across multiple industries, coaching leadership teams in the re-launch of damaged (or non-performing) supplier relationships and, co-delivering the world’s single largest Strategic Procurement training and capability up-lift programme between 2000-03.

    For the last 15 years, Craig has specifically sought out roles and opportunities that have allowed him to leverage the extensive knowledge and practical experience that he has gained to help organisations deliver sustainable improvements in procurement (and business) capability. Whether helping organisations design and embed customised end –to -end strategic procurement practices, coaching and facilitating users through their effective application or, mentoring and supporting leaders through the uplifting of their team’s own performance and growth, Craig still retains that passion for providing procurement people with the tools, techniques and self-confidence to deliver, and deliver well.

    Tod Cooper FCIPS

    Tod Cooper FCIPS

    Director of Commercial Strategy and RelationshipsNew Zealand Defence Force

    STREAM 2: Getting the debrief right

    It is both international best practice and mandated in the Government Procurement Rules to offer a debrief following a tender award. Sadly, the quality of the debriefs given are quite variable.

    A good debrief will inform suppliers, help reduce ill feeling, and maintain credibility in the integrity of your process and of you as a procurement professional. This practical session, specifically for procurement practitioners, will discuss how to better deliver written and verbal debriefs, so that you inform and add value to suppliers or providers that have taken part in a competitive procurement process.

    BIO - Tod has been involved in commercial and operational leadership and advisory roles for the past 20 years, his past role was as General Manager of MDA Corporation, a world leading Space technology company.

    Tod has held senior positions across both public and private sectors in both sales, procurement and business leadership and development, cementing himself as a key trusted adviser. Tod is the National Chair for the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply and Transparency International New Zealand Board Director. Tod is also a judge on the Kapiti Horowhenua Electra Business Awards.

    Tod’s career began in in the mid 90’s with a sales and marketing role within a private defence contractor, a role which would eventually lead to an 8-year diplomatic career including a diplomatic posting with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
