To My PBC Blog Readers,
Firstly, my sincere and humble apologies for my absence. For me, it has been a very been time trying to finish the book, Mastering Performance Based Contracts, which will be released via Amazon.com next week. Unfortunately, due to the number of full-colour diagrams it will only be offered as a printed book. I will send out the link when it goes ‘live’.
Additionally, I am very excited to add that I will be speaking at the end of this month at the International Association of Contract and Commercial Management (IACCM) America’s Conference which is taking place at St. Petersburg in Florida, USA from Monday 29 to Wednesday 31 October 2018. I am honoured and privileged to be participating in both the Great Debate, which is debating that “emerging technology is a threat to the ethics and integrity of trading relationships”, and presenting on PBCs. The topic of my PBC presentation is “Evolving Performance Based Contracts – Lessons Learned 10 years On” focusing on why PBCs have evolved over the past decade and describing how these practical changes can help organisations achieve business success and avoid long-term performance, financial and reputational damage. I may even bring some books along for those interested in buying one. Although I warn you, it may be hard finding one that isn’t signed!
Finally, since I am coming all the way from Australia for this conference I plan on spending the rest of the week (Thursday 01 and Friday 02 November 2018) in either the US or Canada catching up with various people and organisations. This means there is an opportunity for readers in North America interested in discussing PBC further, or running a PBC course through IACCM (see the brochure). So please don’t hesitate to contact me and let me know so I can schedule it in as I would love to see you.
