What was your first “win” that made you confident that you were doing the right thing? Can you tell us more about it?
Meeting your KPIs. This is important to know that you have learned the business and applied your processes correctly. Company mentor and orientation on your job role becomes critical to your success.
What advice do you have for procurement professionals to succeed in this field?
Be ready, and prepare to learn new things, new ideas, suggestions and criticism. This helps you during your review as you are being evaluated if you are fit to the business, and if you can adapt to a new environment.
Are you excited to participate in the upcoming ProcureCon Asia 2017 in Singapore this July? What can we expect from you with regards to your participation? What do you plan to share?
I am excited to discuss the lack of tertiary level of procurement professional training and education that has hindered the efficiency and productivity to support the challenges that company endured over the years. This forum can share knowledge to discuss opportunities to develop and create awareness on the overdue educational platform within this profession.
