Time to Celebrate all things AP!

Each year we celebrate the hard work & endeavour shown by everyone in the AP/P2P industry. This year is even more important as we all face challenges in new working arrangements & environments.

The APA are hosting 5 days of virtual events being joined by leading experts in their respective fields who will help us celebrate our Industry! The event is completely FREE, so you really can’t miss it!

We have also designed a “Wall of Appreciation” for each of you to share your thanks to colleagues, managers or organisations, look out for all the special hashtags in the coming weeks.

So ‘what can we do?’, you might be asking! Excellent question! We definitely have a few ideas that we can’t wait to share with you

The week starting 18th May is our week so we urge you to BE BOLD, BE CRAZY, BE AP! Dress your office/home, bake a AP cake, play some games, whatever you do, do it in the best AP fashion. We will be giving away amazing prizes all week long so make sure you use the hashtag #APAppreciationWeek and tag us in for a chance to win!

Below you will see an Outline Agenda for the Week…

Theme for the day “AP Appreciation Day”

Kicking off the week we celebrate all those involved in our beloved industry with the launch of the ‘Wall of Appreciation‘ plus guest speakers throughout the day

 

Theme for the day “Collaboration”

Now more than ever we need to work with other functions weather it be Procurement, AR, Treasury having strong interactive relationships & processes is must. Our guest speakers will give examples of best practice!

 

Theme of the day “Leadership”

Todays focus will be on what it really takes to be successful as a leader in AP. Topics will include motivation, supporting your teams & will include expert guests in many supporting functions.

 

Theme for the day “Fraud Prevention”

Unfortunately with more people working remotely this could increase the levels of fraud. We will have expert panels discussing the new wave of issues we face plus ways to combat!

 

Theme for the day “The New World”

We will focus on looking at what we have learned during the week & concentrate on what will change when we get back to some kind of normality. Working remotely, using technology to speak to teams & getting over security/trust issues. Join us as we close off the week in style!

 

Feature on the Wall of Appreciation

This year, we have created the Wall of Appreciation so that you can easily share your celebrations and appreciation! Simply include #APAppreciationWall in your social media posts to be featured. Make sure you check the wall throughout the week to see what everyone has been getting up to and even take inspiration from each other!
