Location: National (Online)
Date: 1/01/2020 to 24/07/2020

This pre-recorded webinar series explores government and commercial/corporate procurement processes, how to prepare a competitive tender, and the benefits and risks of government panel memberships.

These webinars were developed through funding support provided by the Department of Social Services.

In this webinar, Paul Vorback from AcademyGlobal, 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.

In conjunction with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Paul Vorbach 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.

This webinar  explores developing a project plan that fully appreciates the total value your organisation brings and ensures this is communicated and received effectively.

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.
