Seven mornings in 7 cities around the region

7.00am to 11.30am – Local Time  

Following on from the tremendous success of last year’s series of 4 Big Breakfast events which sold out, this year, PASA will host 7 Big Breakfast events in 7 cities around Australia and New Zealand.

Last year, these events offered attendees not only the chance to network together again after Covid, but also a concentrated one-day conference worth of up-to-the-minute relevant content in just a short four-hour window in a premium CBD venue.

This year, our expanded programme will double-down on this successful formula in an additional three new cities for the breakfast series – Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne.

The 7am – 11am programme agenda

Each Big Breakfast event will run to a similar structure – with coffee and juices available from 7am, a hot breakfast served by 7.30am and content starting at 8am promptly. Every event will finish on time before 11.30am – local time.

The Theme

Each event will follow a similar theming approach and, at the same time, allow for key regional differences.

At the core of each event is the question of understanding how best procurement can navigate the key challenges we face as a profession today, including;

✔️  Mitigating the effects of high inflation – refocussing on VALUE creation over COST savings

✔️Rebalancing sourcing decisions based on RISK management as well as COST  advantage

✔️  Reviewing the future of global sourcing from Australia & New Zealand in the face of deglobalisation worldwide

✔️  Delivering on stakeholder demands for raised ESG standards from the supply side

✔️  Capturing the true benefits now available from eProcurement technology and digitalisation work

✔️  Understanding local needs and differences

Why attend?

✔️ Get abreast of the key issues facing Procurement – both now and in future – and what you can do about them in practice

✔️ Tap into new procurement thinking from specially recruited procurement thought-leaders and experts

✔️ Hear real-world case studies from leading procurement practitioners and organisations – often facing the same challenges that you are

✔️ Network with colleagues and peers from around your region to connect, share and learn together

Who will attend?

This programme is specifically targeted at local procurement leaders, managers and professionals from across the state in which each event is held.
