November Monthly Digest
NZRise activities and discussions from last month
Yes! Christmas is coming :)
8 days till Santa! I still vividly recall from my days at a telco that every year it was promised that everything would go quiet as soon as we entered brown out in early December. Yet every year brown out got pushed back so more things could get crammed in before the year finished. I sincerely hope this is not your situation currently!
Our Christmas social event was fantastic because we had a whole heap of new faces. Soon to be new members! Many thanks to Wyn for hosting and Victoria for managing it. We have crowned a new quiz champion. Congratulations to Josh Forde. The chocolate is in the mail. For those of you that missed out you can test yourself, the quiz is on our discusison board, see the link further down this newsletter.
The most important thing you can do right now is have a think about a great procurement experience you have had this year and submit a nomination to our procurement award. Make sure you also spread the word, send it to other similar businesses. Instead of complaining about procurement lets set the bar high and shine the light on companies that are doing a good job of getting on with business.
