Highlights & Insights of APMP ANZ Conference 2022

The 2022 APMP ANZ Conference was held in Sydney on 7-8 September and attended by approximately 170 delegates. “Reconnect to Grow” was born out of the need to bring together our members (and extended bid and proposal “tribe” post lockdown(s) to reconnect motivate and inspire.

Key Note Speakers:
Over two jam packed days we delivered a mix of key-note speakers covering global, industry and procurement trends, with more fast-paced format presenters (“Ted Talks” style) discussing sales-cycle information in fun and interesting ways.

Networking and Gala Dinner:
Our full Agenda meant networking occurred in the breaks and during the gala dinner. The gala dinner was a stand-up cocktail event that was held off-site at a gorgeous five-star venue with great entertainment.

Feedback from our delegates was positive as validated by an extraordinary number of testimonials, such as:
“Great to be amongst like-minded people.”
“Empowering and interesting. Gaining new perspectives and learning so much about the industry.”
I enjoyed the two days and found the content beneficial to my own personal development.”
“Great conference, full of intelligent and well-articulated ideas and concepts about tendering and proposals.”
“Two days of motivating content, we are heading back to our organisation energised and armed to improve. Thanks!”
“A great conference. I learnt a lot! Really liked the practical tips and questions and cheat sheet.”
Extremely well and professionally organised, great speakers and presenters, well balanced flow of agenda items and breaks. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first APMP conference and am looking forward to the next one.”

The 2022 APMP ANZ Conference was a great success. It provided delegates with the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, learn new skills and network with other members of the bid and proposal community. We highly recommend attending the next APMP Conference.

2019 Conference: That's a wrap!

The third APMP ANZ conference ‘make an impact’ was our most successful conference to date, with 170 delegates, globally recognised speakers and a charged atmosphere as people connected with like-minded industry colleagues. Keynotes Mike Parkinson and Tom Sant shared on the importance of providing ‘at a glance’, quantified information so here is a summary of the conference in numbers.

Personal highlights included rethinking value propositions with Tom Sant, refocussing on priorities to beat burnout with Kat Barter and Kelly Richmond’s use of Mr Men and Little Miss characters to explain challenging bid team behaviours. Another highlight was  our inaugural APMP game show hosted by APMP Global CEO Rick Harris: watch out for its appearance at next year’s US conference.

What stood out overall though was ‘the vibe’ as referenced in the great Australian film The Castle. The conference rooms buzzed with excitement. Each delegate seemed genuinely excited to be there and conversations centred on new ideas as well as new friendships formed. This continued at our gala event, where delegates took photos with scuba divers and endured several fish puns from myself and Vice-Chair Felix Becker, our MC extraordinaire. 

Thanks again to our major sponsors Shipley and BidWrite, other sponsors and supporters and my fellow organising committee members. We look forward to doing it all again in Sydney on 26 and 27 August 2020. 

An independent survey is being conducted on the conference, to help us measure the impact it had for delegates and inform future planning. I would also welcome feedback on this years’ conference and ideas on how APMP ANZ can provide more value to members as we move into planning for next year.
