How do your stakeholders view procurement?


How your stakeholders view procurement will often be driven by their experience of dealing with you

When I announced ‘Improving Customer Experience’ as the theme for the 2018 PASA Premier ConfeX series a few months ago, I was delighted to hear from a number of procurement leaders who were thinking along similar lines. Better still, some of them had already put initiatives in place that resonated strongly with the theme. Come along to the Premier Confex in Sydney in October or Melbourne in November to hear how:

  • Compass Group Australia has developed, a truly customer-focussed Supply Chain operational support centre that represents the ‘front face’ of supply chain to its customers
  • How SA Power Procurement has become a Trusted Business Partner, how it did it, and what success looks like
  • How Watercare Services from Auckland delivered greatly improved customer experience by adopting ‘agile’ methodologies

Plus a number of other case studies from Health Purchasing Victoria, NARTA, Monadelphous, Opal Aged Care, The Victorian Dept of Justice and Regulation and more.

Combined with an extensive range of expert procurement and non-procurement speakers, investing your time attending either he Sydney or Melbourne events will the best decision you make this year.

I look forward to seeing many of you there,

Nigel Wardropper,
Managing Director,
