Speakers

 

PA344 TomorrowIsToday STD OL 01

Australia’s specialist procurement conference presented by Australia’s leading national  aggregator for members and industry decision makers.

Procurement Australia’s action packed one-day 12th Annual Conference, themed  TOMORROW IS TODAY, is on Friday 25 August at the Melbourne Convention and  Exhibition Centre.

With even more support than ever, TOMORROW IS TODAY continues the forward looking  approach reflected in our recent past conferences: MATTER in 2014, FOCUS in 2015 and  TRANSFORMATION in 2016.

TOMORROW IS TODAY is futuristic in outlook, mindful of current shifts in procurement  towards renewables, social procurement, diversity and collaboration. It reminds us to  consider the future in all our business decisions, focusing on how the procurement industry,  its practitioners and their processes can do just that.

Because we believe in presenting the best speakers around to share their insights into how  to do it smarter, TOMORROW IS TODAY offers some of Australia’s leading theorists and  practitioners to discuss, collaborate, debate and navigate a path to a more sustainable  future. 

TOMORROW IS TODAY is the major public expression of our commitment to investing and nurturing the procurement industry. 

It combines high quality content focused on procurement’s first principles – efficiency, sustainability and long term economic benefit – with the public acknowledgement of this year’s excellence in procurement achievements through a range of peer chosen Excellence Awards.
