Description

In July 2008 the newly re-launched SSON held the first two meetings of the newly appointed SSON Global Steering Committee in New York and
London. The purpose was pretty simple: To find out what you need and how our membership (www.SSONETWORK.COM) can help you get it.
Two intensive days later our global flagship event series was re-designed to make 2009 attendance deliver far more than ever before. And here’s how:

1. FORMAT: NO MORE 45 MINUTE CASE STUDIES. Every stream to be
Interactive: opinion pieces, interviews, boardroom challenge, whistle-blower sessions, 3D talking heads (see website for more details)

2. FOLLOW-UP: Provide take-aways for continued
growth and networking after the event
• Build a year-round promise into the purchase of an SSOW ticket, automatically
entitling buyers to touch points through the year - pod casts, webinars, conference calls, SS NEWS, featured articles, e-newsletter user groups, roundtable transcripts

Additional content themes for 2009

Addressing core Shared Services topics (cost-reduction, process
efficiency, adding strategic value and driving customer service)
remains at the heart of the programme’s content. But 3 NEW market
messages are also sweeping in to the mix for 2009:

1. Captive Shared Services and Outsourcing boundaries are
blurring: The message here was clear – it’s where you’re going
that matters – not how you get there. Everyone’s striving for
better support services, regardless of the delivery mechanism or
model you choose. It’s all just part of a transformation journey.
Whether you opted for black, white or (as most do nowadays) your
own version of grey, there are lessons to be learned on both sides.

2. Better Shared Services & Outsourcing delivery directly impacts
Working Capital Management: Board and Treasury now openly
recognise that tighter control and efficiency in centralised Finance
processes massively influence and accelerates WCM flow. In Europe’s
current economic climate this is being propelled to the forefront of
Shared Services agenda.

*WORKING CAPITAL FOCUS DAY ADDED TO DAY ONE*

3. Scale isn’t necessarily essential for success: The mid-market
is firmly identified as the next big wave of Shared Services /
Outsourcing activity. Leveraging the benefits of centralised support
services is something every mid-size company needs to embrace.
Quick wins can be easily made and these events need to cater equally
for those operating smaller operations.
