    Partnerships with Sneha Chow

    Partnerships with Sneha Chow

    In this episode, we will be talking about Partnerships. Partnerships sounds interesting because it is interesting. It is all about helping a company identify and form long-term partnerships with other companies, which could bring complementary capability to enhance our own products. For example, Facebook may form a partnership with banks or fintechs, in order to add a payment capability to the Facebook app. The end goal is to create a better and more comprehensive product for customers/end users.

    Our guest is Sneha Chow, who works at Xero and has over 5 years of experience in the world of partnerships. At the time of the recording, she was working in the role of Senior Manager in the Market Development Partnerships for ANZ - she has since been promoted to Global Business Operations Manager - Partnerships at Xero. In this episode, Sneha explains what partnerships are all about, what her day to day looks like and the skills required to work in this field. Enjoy!

    Procurement with Felipe Costa

    Procurement with Felipe Costa

    This new episode is about about Procurement. I have a special place in my heart for Procurement because that’s where I started my career.

    Procurement is all about helping an organisation buy goods and services to help it operate and service their customers. Think of it as going shopping for a corporate organisation.

    Our guest is Felipe Costa – he started his career in Management Consulting working for the Big 4 and worked his way up from Consultant to Associate Director. After 10 years in Management Consulting, he moved to a couple of procurement leadership roles outside of consulting – today, he is the Head of Procurement at a large not-for-profit organisation headquartered in Brisbane.

    Felipe has lots to share about not only Procurement, but also about how you could kick start and fast track your career. Enjoy!
