About this session

In 2020, extensive research led to the formation of a new type of business being established to better meet the needs of both procurement managers and social enterprises at the same time  – 

In fact, two new businesses were created to meet different needs – Wirrigan Business Services & Social Buy – each offering identical products and services but having different beneficiaries, therefore giving the customer the choice of social outcome.

Today, in 2022, buyers needing certified social outcomes from their expenditure can buy regular INDIRECT categories quickly and easily at the lower costs they expect, for largely the same corporate products, 

yet also with genuine social outcomes guaranteed. Hear all about this CASE STUDY in a new way to deliver SOCIAL PROCUREMENT and the modern way to meet your social or indigenous procurement targets
