Putting your best foot forward: social procurement
|24 July 2018 1:00pm – 2:00pm||
In conjunction with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Paul Vorbach from AcademyGlobal has developed leading qualifications for public sector procurement and contract management. With a background in executive management in multinational commercial firms, including Deloitte (Senior Manager) and Citi (VP and Director), Paul has 25 years’ experience across consulting, financial services and management education industries.
In this webinar, Paul will define social procurement and debunk some common misconceptions. He will help providers of all sizes capitalise on trends in social procurement and participate in requests for quotes and tenders, and share success stories of other not-for-profit organisations.
How to Win Tenders: Articulating clear value propositions
|7 August 2018 1:00pm – 2:00pm||
Patrick Moriarty is the Director of Training and Development at Our Community and holds a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) and a Graduate Diploma in Marketing. His key interests include not-for-profit sector governance, fundraising, grant seeking, community sector marketing, risk management and strategic planning.
In this webinar, Patrick will demonstrate the importance of articulating a clear value proposition in order to win government and commercial tenders. Many disability organisations have a competitive edge that fails to be told in many settings including tenders. We’ll explore developing a project plan that fully appreciates the total value you bring and ensures this is communicated and received effectively.
