The PASA Connect Auckland Big Brekkie – 15th September 2020, 7.00am to 11.30am, Rydges Auckland
The pandemic has in many ways fragmented our community – the procurement community too.
This PASA business breakfast event will hopefully play a small part in helping to bring back together the procurement community in Auckland.
At PASA, we were fortunate in March 2020 to be able to completely pivot to ONLINE for the many procurement round-tables we were already running online and LIVE throughout the country.
Both last year and this, PASA Connect offered over 80 expert led peer-to-peer round-tables on every topic relevant to busy procurement teams during a crisis – including weekly CPO round-tables during the start of the crisis.
PASA Connect brought us together, shared experiences on urgent questions and quickly captured key learning points from which we could all benefit immediately. This enables us to collate content second to none in its immediacy, its relevance and its pragmatism.
The online PASA Connect network is now available to procurement practitioners located in SA. The topics covered are entirely ‘national’ in nature and a feature of PASA Connect is the member-driven programme.

The role and practice of AGILE in procurement’s future?
The fusing of the agile business philosophy with procurement process holds real promise of faster and more responsive outcomes for Procurement. Watercare NZ is one of the first organisations in the region to embrace agile and apply it successfully to procurement – to the point now that stakeholders regard the AGILE PROCURMENT approach as BAU, and a standard tool to be sued when right. Learn the basic tenants of ‘lean agile procurement’ and how it can help address some long-standing criticisms of procurement work
Head of Supply Chain
Your first 100 days as the new CPO
So, as the new CPO, how do you determine your priorities against so many competing demands? What is first, what can wait? And how can you listen and figure out what really needs doing, against the pressure to deliver within the first 100 days? Listen to someone who knows after completing senior leadership positions at TV NZ, Air NZ, Fonterra, Spark and, now, Frucor Suntory … and work out what lessons you can apply to your own leadership role.
