Testimonials from previous CPO attendees:

“The PASA CPO Exchange was a fantastic opportunity to engage with fellow senior Procurement executives to share thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing the profession across multiple industry sectors. The quality addition to the agenda of high performance business coaches and experts on emotional and cultural intelligence also created space for necessary introspection and future focus. I would thoroughly recommend
this exchange to other senior Procurement leaders.”
Rob Halsall | Director, Commercial Services, Operations and Property | Westpac Group

“It was a great experience delivered from an exceptional location. People are what make these events successful, and to be able to attract the level of calibre from such a wide array of industries is a credit to PASA, as well as the delivery, which was top class and professionally delivered. To be able to interact and network with likeminded professionals provided an excellent opportunity to discuss relevant topics affecting us every day. Scheduling allowed breathing space and if topics ran over time, it was able to made up.”
Shane Sherwood | General Manager Procurement | Westrac

“A great opportunity to step back from our day to day activities and remember that unless we take care of ourselves, how can we hope to deliver the best possible results for our organisations. Well done to Nigel and the team at PASA for another great conference.”
Matt Keegan | General Manager Supply Chain | Fleet Partners

“The 2016 CPO Exchange was a great opportunity to interact, swap ideas and learn from my peers. The event was extremely well managed and the location was great. I definitely recommend it to other CPOs”
Kellie Jess Chief Procurement Officer | The Australian National University

“This was my second PASA CPO Exchange, and was even more enjoyable and valuable than the first. I would recommend this event to any CPO looking to learn from industry peers, meet with innovative suppliers and be both entertained and challenged by some thought-provoking speakers. Well done PASA. “
Ian Griffith | Head of Procurement | DuluxGroup
