Women in Procurement 2015 conference
Melbourne, Australia

Inspiring leadership, advancing careers and driving innovation in procurement and supply chain function and practice

The procurement function has transformed from a back office service to a strategic business function. The influence of CPOs and their teams within the enterprise has become pivotal, along with the increasing complexity of the procurement function and practice. This elevated role has brought heightened expectations for procurement teams to deliver across a broad range of capabilities that enhance business efficiency and fuel enterprise innovation. As the procurement workforce responds, a significant feature is what a Global Management Consultancy called the rise of the female buyer in a post gender economy.

Women in Procurement 2015 will see CPOs, and senior procurement directors and managers from across industry sectors meeting in Melbourne to analyse the key trends in procurement and supply chain practice and learn about the attributes and skills that advance leadership and influence within the procurement function. Featuring presentations from some of the most influential CPO’s and procurement practitioners in Australia, the conference will bring together senior managers in procurement, supply chain, category management, purchasing and logistics to meet and network with thought leaders and develop their leadership, organisational and functional goals.

The conference agenda has been designed by some of Australia’s leading female procurement practitioners for the benefit of women working within procurement and supply chain teams.
