Venue:  Brisbane Square, Level 16, 266 George Street.  

Our focus for this Member Meetings will follow the IACCM theme for 2018:

Collaborating Across Boundaries

Trading relationships often involve multiple parties whose support and alignment is critical to success. Achieving that support and alignment depends on empathy - an understanding and appreciation of their point of view (whether or not we agree with it).  And in the rapidly changing world of digitization, automation, and diversity, relationships are being forced into new approaches to collaborating across boundaries. 

For several years, IACCM research has pointed to the scale of value erosion that comes from weaknesses in the way we form and manage contracts. While a few organizations have picked up on this and driven significant improvements, most have not  Suddenly, the reticence is disappearing; there is a real belief that a focus on 'relationship resource planning' can yield the next big wave of savings - and that the IACCM community, with its 'collaboration across boundaries', will be at the heart of the movement that drives these benefits.

At this event, we will explore the way commercial teams are collaborating, and we want you to bring your stories, examples, insights and question to share with others.

We are delighted to have Bruce Pain, CPO, Brisbane City Council as our guest speaker.  Bruce will share some insights into commercial management in local government, and the interesting strategies being taken at BCC.  Collaboration across government at all levels is the new strategy, as well as relationship development and partnering with key suppliers.

Following the official agenda, we invite you to participate in networking with Bruce, and other participants
