Shared Services and Outsourcing Exchange
16 - 18 September 2012

Prague, Czech Republic

Shared Services and Outsourcing professionals across diverse industries, backgrounds, geographies, functions and responsibilities have one thing in common – the need to innovate. This need has grown exponentially over the last few years. This is because the industry has matured over the last decade and there is a general feeling among industry professionals that the same processes, systems and technologies have been recycled and reused year after year under the pretext of standardising operations.

The Shared Services and Outsourcing Exchange 2012 will, therefore, focus on innovation and reigniting passion in processes, thinking, strategies and technologies. This unique, invitation-only meeting will bring senior business leaders from HR, IT, Finance, Outsourcing, Procurement, Customer Services and Legal functions from all over the world to debate and formulate strategies to take their business to the next level.
