Entrepreneur. CEO. Mother. Marketer. Wife. Philanthropist. Public Speaker. There are many words to describe Tania, but one that comes up over and over is networker.
In 2016, Tania was recognized by IBM as a #NewWaytoEngage Futurist and named “Influencer of the Year” by Supply Chain Dive. She hosts regular procurement webinars, and presents at high-profile events around the world.

Established sixteen years ago, The Faculty has instigated a number of "firsts" for the procurement profession in Australia, including the development of a Procurement Executive Program through Melbourne Business School, the establishment of a Procurement Roundtable which includes many of Australia's leading organisations, creation of an annual Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) Forum and attracting leading global procurement thought leaders to teach in Australia.
Ten years ago, Tania founded The Source, a specialist recruitment firm for the procurement profession.
