The Event

This is a very exciting time in procurement where global trends show CPOs are reshaping their roles in the C-suite. The modern procurement division has a direct impact on the growth of their companies that goes beyond cost control to become a part of the whole organisational innovation process.

With a considerable number of women CPOs and many more in leadership roles in procurement across sectors in Australia, this event is the premier opportunity for procurement professionals to up-skill themselves and gain a comprehensive overview of the latest trends from the best practitioners in procurement and supply chain management.

Following the success of the inaugural Women in Procurement in May 2015, the 2nd annual Women in Procurement 2016 will once again be a platform for all procurement stakeholders to get inspired and build the foundations for better outcomes for their teams and personal careers.
