Sponsorship has been shown to be a key factor in project success, but do we clearly articulate the role and align expectations when we ask someone to sponsor a change?

Fonterra Co-operative Group is pleased to host a session exploring the important topic of change sponsorship – what good looks like, why the role is important, and how we set our change sponsors up for success.

The session will include a panel interview with:

Vijay Reddy is the GM Global Process in the Global Supply Chain business unit of Fonterra. He has a number of years of professional experience spanning consulting, operational leadership and programme / project management and sponsorship. He currently leads the strategy, roadmap, and delivery of supply chain business processes and technology within Fonterra's Global Operations Group.

Sharne Usherwood is a Management Consulting Director at KPMG and leads the Customer and Operations Practice. She has a background in Management Consulting and Supply Chain Leadership roles in both New Zealand and Australia and has been responsible for leading and sponsoring change initiatives in a number of industries including FMCG, Retail, Agri-business, Oil & Gas and Manufacturing.

It will be followed by a practical activity focusing on how change managers can support sponsors’ success.
