EEC 2018 PANEL TOPIC: Impact Spending and the rise of the ethical supplier

There has never been a better time to be an ethical supplier to government and big business. Major regulatory change at both the state and federal level means Impact Spending is becoming the new norm for big procurement. As a result, social enterprises and ethical suppliers are in high demand.

To help you make the most of this $600B opportunity, Matt will lead a panel of procurement leaders from major corporates and government, in a ‘warts and all’ discussion about what they really want and how to win their business.

Session Outcomes:
• Why regulatory changes such as the Victorian Social Procurement Framework and Australian Modern Slavery Act are driving demand for social enterprises and other ethical suppliers
• What big spenders from corporate and government procurement teams are looking for from their suppliers
• How to navigate procurement processes to win your share of Australia’s $600B procurement spend
