Networks

The SSF UK Practitioner Networks

Ensuring our members have a unique platform for topical debate and networking is paramount at Shared Services Forum UK. Its critical in order to promote best practice, drive process improvement and showcase excellence.

Networks are member driven and come about when a group identifies a topic where there is shared appetite to give a particular function the time, insight and energy necessary to drive high quality business meetings.

Member organisations are welcomed to send delegates to our Network Meetings and encouraged to participate in the many opportunities to host or speak at such events.

Each Network has a dedicated chair who is responsible for putting together meeting agendas and sourcing engaging speakers with the support of the Forum. 

If you are interested in speaking, hosting, or sponsoring one of our Networks please contact info@sharedservicesforumuk.com or the relevant Network Chair.
