Ladies in Procurement (LIPs) have in excess of 200 CPO’s and Procurement professionals in the Sydney and wider region looking to network and support organisations.

The co-founders have a desire to be no cost events and have a no sales focus. As ladies in procurement, we are aware that we always focus on cost and constantly have someone selling to us.  This network is about being open, inclusive and supportive without any pressure of needing to buy a product or have a service offering pitched to us.

Our partners are needed to host and sponsor the events.  Packages can be tailored to suit your needs.

We believe that Ladies in Procurement can have a meaningful impact on our profession, our economy, our communities and our next generation of professional procurement leaders. We believe that by partnering with organisations that have the same belief that we can jointly bring network events to focus on topics of interest and inspirational stories that empower others.

Here is what we bring to the partnership:

  • The co-founders have over 60 years of experience in procurement and have built considerable networks across the industry

  • Every LIPs event has a theme that is relevant to the host, sponsor and venue, with subject matter experts providing insight, inspiration and opportunity

  • Our master contact lists ensure we reach out to CPO’s, their leadership, procurement professionals and up and coming millennial rock stars (or what we like to call the CPOs of the future)

  • We provide the agenda, the speakers, the themes, the participant list & general event coordination/management.


 Here is what our partners bring:
