Members are invited to attend our exclusive face to face and online events throughout the year, included as part of their membership. This includes our Annual Conference, Leaders’ events and quarterly Network Meetings for our active Practitioner Networks.We want our members to leave each event feeling motivated and inspired to achieve greater success, with a clear roadmap to change, think differently and/or to improve themselves and their organisation.
Our flagship annual conference provides members with the opportunity to participate in quality networking, learn and share best practice, listen to outstanding speakers, meet exhibitors and enjoy first-class hospitality. Each year our Conference attracts over 300 leading Shared Service professionals, and showcases a select number of key industry suppliers and business partners.
We host three Leaders’ Meetings per year, including our ever popular Summer Social. Each member organisation’s Shared Service Centre Leader is invited to attend, alongside selected Sponsors, Partners and Associates. These events provide the opportunity to network and meet like-minded professionals. It is a great platform for leaders to exchange views and information, allowing them to discuss tomorrow's challenges as well as share ideas on how to leverage current business opportunities.
The lifeblood of Shared Services Forum UK is our activate practitioner networks, Purchase to Pay, Order to Cash, FA&R, Digital & Operational Excellence and HR & Payroll. These events are held quarterly for each Network either online or face to face and all networks are voluntarily chaired by 2 of our SSF UK members.
All of our online events are recorded and can be viewed from the website at anytime. Our face to face events take place at prestigious locations nationwide and have included, The Houses of Parliament, The Chester Grosvenor, Aintree Racecourse, The Lowry Hotel, The Hilton Hotel, and the Boardroom at Manchester United Football Club.
