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 – and will be the first PASA event in New Zealand for over three long years! And we at PASA are delighted to be back again …
At PASA, we were fortunate during Covid to be able to completely pivot to online for the many procurement PASA Connect Round-tables we were already running online and live throughout the country. To date we have run over 250 online one-hour Round tables for our 65 organisational members, including a good number of New Zealand based organisations, and even with some dedicated Kiwi-content.
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 for a member driven network that is second to none in its immediacy, its relevance and its pragmatism – including for New Zealand. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org at anytime or visit www.pasaconnect.com
Why attend this event?
This event will deliver a topical content stream directly relevant to the Top Six challenges facing procurement in New Zealand this year and next, and is introduced by PASA CEO, Jonathan Dutton.
Three of the leading figures in the NZ Procurement profession will offer guiding contributions at this event –
Laurence Pidcock (GM of MBIE) on future NZ Government procurement policy,
Stuart Bird (CPO at Watercare & agile experts) with an agile procurement case study,
Andrea Gregory (CPO at Frucor Suntory and formerly CPO at Air NZ, Fonterra, Spark & TV.NZ) on how to manage your first 100 days as a procurement leader
The three previous PASA Connect BIG BREKKY’s each SOLD OUT in Adelaide, Perth & Brisbane and each proved a welcome and enthusiastic return to LIVE events for everyone who came. As one person attending in Perth said, “PASA delivered an entire one-day conference by 11am”
Get together with your colleagues and peers in Auckland after the pandemic and get up to speed on best practice at this event for only $45 – or $25 for PASA Connect members
See you there!

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.
Head of Procurement
