Kristal is your experienced and trusted partner who can help you kickstart your supplier diversity program and build a robust and actionable plan.
She has developed a best practice approach to Indigenous business procurement for corporates and government organisations, captured in her highly respected book, Supplier Diversity How, and can guide you every step of the way.
BUILD YOUR BUSINESS CASE
Kristal is an expert at bringing people together and connecting executives with the opportunities working with Indigenous businesses can bring to both their organisation and the community. She can help you run strategic alignment sessions, set a clear, powerful vision and build your business case for how you will deliver it.
DEVELOP YOUR POLICY
A key step to turn your business case into action is reviewing your current procurement policy, spend allocation and Indigenous business network. Kristal can work with you to establish where you are today and develop a supplier diversity policy you can deliver. With this in hand, the team will have a clear direction.
ESTABLISH YOUR IPP
Indigenous Participation Plans (IPP) form a key part of the Commonwealth Government's Indigenous Procurement Policy and are an essential requirement for many organisations. Kristal can help you develop your plan, including how you will purchase services, employ and train your people, to meet your compliance targets.
CONNECT WITH BUSINESSES
Meet with potential Indigenous business partners through bespoke meet and greet events that fit your organisation and its needs. Kristal can help you design and facilitate meetings with Indigenous business leaders, so they can meet your procurement team and you can start to explore ways you can work together.
