Shared Services Forum UK’s flagship annual event, giving our members the opportunity to hear outstanding speakers, learn and share best practice, participate in quality networking, meet exhibitors and enjoy first-class hospitality.
Each year our Conference attracts over 300 leading SSC professionals, and showcases a select number of key industry suppliers and business partners.
We host three Leaders’ Meetings per year, including a Summer Social and Christmas Luncheon, attended by each member organisation’s SSC Leader; alongside selected partners.
Held at venues such as the House of Commons, Imperial War Museum North, and Haydock Park Racecourse, with past speakers such as Jeffrey Archer and Lord Paddy Ashdown, these are not events to be missed.
The lifeblood of Shared Services Forum UK, our six active Practitioner Networks have been set up by members who have identified topics or work functions - Credit Control, FA&R, HR, Lean, Payroll and Purchase to Pay - with a shared appetite to come together on a regular basis to discuss key issues and best practice. Hosted at member organisation’s SSCs, these events are held quarterly for each Network, and are voluntarily chaired by a member.
Shared Services Forum UK offers an extensive package of member benefits including the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals, whose passion is the pursuit and deployment of business excellence in Shared Services.
