The 15th Annual European Shared Services & Outsourcing Week

21 - 22 May, 2015

Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

SSON’s European Shared Services & Outsourcing Week – Where Shared Services Executives Gather to Benchmark

The European Shared Services & Outsourcing Week remains Europe’s premiere conference dedicated to the shared services and outsourcing history. Gather over 500+ practitioners, GBS leaders, analysts and industry experts, we provide the ideal platform for meaningful benchmarking, networking and learning.

The value we provide at our event lies in the timeliness of our programme topics, the relevance of our practitioner community, and the catalyst for conversation our speaker faculty inspires. Learn more about the SS&O conference by reading about our speakers and partners, or browse through our collection of articles and resources, videos and photos.

Inspiring Conversation, Connection and Change

With the use of anecdotes and references to his time at Apple and Steve Jobs, Big Idea speaker Ken Segall, former Creative Director of Apple, told us that one of the most complex things to do is ‘to keep it simple.’

Networking Shouldn’t Be Difficult

That’s why we’re bringing back SSON's Networking App, which allows attendees to navigate through the sea of people and find people who share similar backgrounds and challenges. With your conference pass, you will get a networking login so that you can search the audience by keywords and interests plus you'll get AppMail and AppMeeting credits so that you can connect directly.

More and more shared services practitioners confirm that the value added by their SSO is more critical than cost-cutting in the long run. Meet with over 70 advisors/consultancies, BPOs, software and technology providers, research firms and RDAs to understand which solutions can help you achieve your goals.

"I found the European Shared Services & Outsourcing Week extremely valuable. This was the first conference of its type that I have attended and thought there were some good concepts being debated. The range of technology providers across the various stands also allowed me to assess what's available in the market to support process development."british_gas_smRichard Cottam
