Our annual Finance and Procurement conference was delivered on August 8-9 with 115 delegates in attendance. The program was well received with the highlights being noted as Professor Tim Brailsford’s opening keynote, William Confalonieri’s presentation on digital transformation at Deakin University, Gold Coast City Council’s transformation, UniLink and NAB’s joint presentation on Fraud Protection and the interactive travel round table discussion led by Richard Savva.
The Human Capital Management (HCM) project is progressing well with the sector consultation process set to conclude in a little over a month. Dr Andrew Trnacek, HES CEO, wrote to all university HR Directors in July seeking their response to a discussion document prepared to activate thinking in this area. The project also established a MindHive challenge to crowdsource opinions and discussion from the broader HR community – particularly from those outside the sector.
