    The Procurement Executive Program provides a unique opportunity to participate in a strategic leadership program with your procurement industry peers. Thought provoking content with a distinct procurement perspective challenges you to think differently about how procurement is positioned within your own organisation and what you can do to drive value-adding change.

    The Procurement Executive Program presents a selection of key focus areas relevant to any procurement leader. The high quality modules are delivered by a range of skilled practitioners, offering practical tools and methodologies to utilise in our own environments. The combination of technical and leadership skills helps to generate new and challenging ideas for procurement. The opportunity to meet and network with a range of peers from across a number of industries gave a richness and depth that would otherwise be very difficult to access, adding significant value to the course.
