POWER UP! – Beyond Efficiency & Compliance to Innovation & Impact

With an unprecedented spotlight being placed on public sector decision-making, and a more intelligent and demanding citizenry, the need for enlightened and transformational leadership and the fostering of open, collaborative and effective dialogue with citizens on public contracting issues has never been more pressing.

Blunders in the boardroom and at top-management level are no longer going unnoticed andrecent legal actions against state board members also highlight the need for increased vigilance and rigour in the course of carrying out fiduciary duties.   

Moreover, with shrinking budgets, falling commodity prices and an increasingly challenging global economic environment, governments and public sector leaders around the world are under pressure to build critical capacity to

  • Innovate and find ways to do more with less,
  • Stimulate local entrepreneurship and small and growing businesses,
  • Create shared value across multiple stakeholders and
  • Harness and amplify the power of the public purchasing function to achieve greater social impact.  

This intervention has been specifically designed to arm local public sector leaders and senior management with the most tested and practical frameworks and tools for proactive and transformational public sector leadership.

Covering the two main themes of Procurement Innovation and Leadership Development, and with the use of select Business Case Studies and latest research in positive psychology for building organisational culture facilitated by local and international thought leaders, this seminar provides public sector leaders with globally tested pragmatic frameworks for immediate application and will help public organisations identify professional and institutional strengths, opportunities and areas for capacity support.
