Market disruptors, ever-advancing technology, economic and geopolitical fluctuations – these factors are all having a huge impact on the world around us and the future of work. They bring threats as well as opportunities – but are you ready for them?
If you can’t predict what’s coming, you at least need the capability to react quickly and the resilience to stay in the game.
CIPS Australasia Conference 2017 will explore these issues and more and
will provide practical help, together with the motivation and
inspiration to help you play your part.
Hear CIPS President and
former CEO of Rio Tinto Sam Walsh offer insight into the CEO’s view of
procurement; find out how indigenous businesses can boost your
reputation and revenue; and discover why technology should be embraced and not feared.
Asia-Pacific chief economist Rajiv Biswas will proffer a global
economic overview; CIPS Group Marketing Director Cath Hill will explore
emerging changes that impact the future of the profession with the CIPS
Supply Century presentation; and breakout sessions will offer a deeper
dive into specific topics of interest.
This first day of the
conference will be followed by a focus day, comprising of hour-long panel presentations and workshops examining the world of automated procurement and robotics,
career development, how to boost supplier and stakeholder relations and
the risk of ignoring supply chain resilience.
supply professionals are central to the region’s success. They can act
as the catalyst for supplier innovation, the mitigators of risk and the
energisers of efficiency and effectiveness.
Be part of
procurement's success. Join us on 18 and 19 July at the Park Hyatt in
Melbourne to hear from those involved in realising these visions. And
meet procurement professionals from across sectors, countries and
categories to boost your peer network, discover what others are doing
and make connections with suppliers who can help.
