Networks

The SSF UK Practitioner Networks

Ensuring our members have a unique platform for topical debate and networking is paramount. The purpose of each Network Meeting is for members to network together and make new acquaintances, whilst absorbing key ‘Take Aways’ and good ideas to implement in their own Shared Service Centre. The agility of the Forum allows members to take part directly in creating and setting up practitioner work-shops or meetings to discuss relevant case studies which stimulate and drive debate around challenge and opportunity, which span from topics like, best practice operating models to systems & enablement to deliver efficiency & effectiveness.  Each Network has dedicated Co-chair's who are responsible for putting together the agendas, sourcing engaging speakers with the support of the Forum. 

Member organisations are welcomed to send as many members of their team to our network events and are also encouraged to participate in the many opportunities to contribute at these events.

If you are interested in speaking or sponsoring one of our Networks please get in touch.
