PERTH – Thursday 28th July 2022 – 7.00am to 11.30am     SOLD OUT

The Duxton Hotel, 1 St Georges Terrace


The pandemic has in many ways fragmented our community – the procurement community too.

This PASA business breakfast event will hopefully play a small part in helping to bring back together the procurement community in Perth.


The Theme

In one morning we aim to offer some thoughts pertinent to managing a modern and professional procurement team during this pandemic – including some of the priorities and thinking from the East as well as some best practices in the West.

These include:

  • The 7 Challenges facing procurement post-Covid
  • Pivoting Procurement in an inflationary world – managing down a rising cost base
  • Rebalancing COST -v- RISK on inbound supply chains
  • The role of Agile Procurement in the future
  • Sustainable procurement priorities post-Covid
  • Crafting your procurement L&D plan for post-Covid needs
  • An executive summary of the new WA Procurement Act


PASA Connect

At PASA, we were fortunate in March 2020 to be able to completely pivot to ONLINE for the many procurement round-tables we were already running online and LIVE throughout the East of the country.

Both last year and this, PASA Connect offered over 80 expert led peer-to-peer round-tables on every topic relevant to busy procurement teams during a crisis – including weekly CPO round-tables during the start of the crisis.

PASA Connect brought us together, shared experiences on urgent questions and quickly captured key learning points from which we could all benefit immediately. This enables us to collate content second to none in its immediacy, its relevance and its pragmatism.

The online PASA Connect network is now available to procurement practitioners located in WA. The topics covered are entirely ‘national’ in nature and a feature of PASA Connect is the member-driven programme.  For more details contact at anytime or visit
