REVISE OR REVOLUTIONISE? what will you choose… 

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

Friday 24 August 2018 is the date for Procurement Australia’s action packed one-day 13th Annual Conference, REVISION OR REVOLUTION? at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

REVISION OR REVOLUTION? looks into the future by asking whether you’ll choose Revision over Revolution of your organisation’s current business practices as you strive to meet the new world challenges that threaten your financial, social and environmental – triple bottom line – performance.

Shifts towards renewables, social procurement and greater collaboration are demanding that we think about how and why we make the business decisions we take in the face of such momentous change.

Improving on the format established by recent past conferences – FOCUS in 2015, TRANSFORMATION in 2016, AND TOMORROW IS TODAY in 2017 – REVISION OR REVOLUTION? will challenge you to consider either comprehensive review or perhaps even total upheaval of your organisation’s behaviours, practices, processes and strategies for new world success.

REVISION or REVOLUTION? aims to help you, the procurement industry, its professionals, suppliers and peers, focus on how it and you can meet this challenge

Procurement Australia believes in presenting the best speakers around so REVISION OR REVOLUTION ? will offer a terrific range of leading theorists and practitioners to discuss, debate, and navigate your way to and through the new world.

As the major public expression of Procurement Australia’s commitment to investing and nurturing the procurement industry, our guiding principle is to combine high quality content focused on procurement’s key benchmarks of efficiency, sustainability and long term economic benefit. 

And, again, our 2018 Conference will publicly acknowledge excellence in procurement through our peer chosen Excellence Awards. The Jacinta Bartlett Award for Excellence in Procurement will again be given and the second recipient of the Paul Everitt Scholarship will be announced.  

We are proud of our efforts to develop and support the procurement industry and look forward to celebrating this with you at this year’s REVISION OR REVOLUTION? Conference.
