Best agenda I’ve seen for some time. I may need to become schizophrenic to attend all the sessions that are relevant to Kellogg!John Gregory, European Finance Shared Services Director, Kelloggs (October 2013, regarding 2014 show)
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.Richard Cottam, Head of Finance Shared Services, British Gas
The networking at the European Shared Services & Outsourcing Week was very useful - especially giving me a chance to meet people in similar roles, facing similar challenges in other organisations. One of the evening receptions, The Mat Hatters Tea Party worked very well and really encouraged people to mix.Liz Ditchburn, Relationship Leader, Kimberly-Clark
We are now in a people business and that is a big issue. The relationship we are having with the customer is much more important than it has ever been before. SSON is setting itself to be a real player in the shift, and this is where the real attraction comes from.Nigel Kilpatrick, Chief Sales Officer, Tibco Nimbus May 2013
You can spend a lot of time doing a lot trying to reach these people by email and phone but here you have the advantage of not only being in the same place as them but actually having SSON's team getting you some face time with those people.Joana Monteiro, Marketing Manager, Winshuttle
You are the leaders actually of such events providing a lot of networking opportunities.Krystian Bestry, Head of BPO Services, Infosys
