A Key Benefit for Our Members

Members are invited to attend our own high-quality face to face and online events throughout the year, included as part of their membership. This includes our flagship Annual Conference, three Leaders’ Meetings 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.

This year we are celebrating 10 years of Shared Services Forum UK, so we want to incorporate that into all our events throughout 2020!!!!

A Key Benefit for Our Members
Conf 19 Collage


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.

The FutureVision Awards Dinner is a big part of the annual conference. The awards honour those in our membership who have exemplified our Forum’s core values of ‘Community’, ‘Leadership’ and ‘Evolution’ over the year. 

We now have a 4th award category which is based on our conference theme.


Community – someone who, either through their work or extra-curricular activities, had introduced, developed or contributed to a sense of community within their workplace, the shared services industry or the community in which their business operates.

Leadership – someone who has shown exceptional leadership qualities, that have made a significant positive impact and difference to their team.

Evolution – someone who has embraced change, technology or other opportunities to create transformation and helped show others the way, through their vision. 

The top 3 candidates in each category are invited to attend the Annual Conference Awards Dinner, along with all the Leaders from each of our member organisations, where the winners are then announced!!!!



We host three Leaders’ Meetings per year, including our ever popular Summer Social. Each member organisation’s SSC Leader is invited to attend, alongside selected Sponsors, Partners and Associates. 

Meeting venues have included the House of Commons, the Imperial War Museum North, and Haydock Racecourse. We have had the pleasure of welcoming guest speakers such as Jeffrey Archer and Lord Paddy Ashdown. 

These are not events to be missed.
