Hit the high notes: tuning in to the opportunities
As companies dare to look towards brighter economic conditions, Shared Services Centres (SSCs) need to position themselves to respond quickly to the growth aspirations of the businesses they support.
Whilst the focus on cash and efficiency will not disappear, shared services leaders need to tune into the opportunities presented by multi-functional business services, responsive technologies, cost effective locations and value-adding Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). In doing so, SSCs can transform themselves into true Business Partners.
The 2010 Deloitte Shared Services and BPO Conference brought together business leaders from companies including: BP, JT International, Bombardier Transportation, Aviva, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Pearson, Oracle, Eaton, Dell, AP Moeller Maersk, Pfizer, Marks & Spencer and Yahoo! to reveal how they have exploited the opportunities available to them.

New this year: Shared Services Leaders Panel
For our 2010 Conference, we were also pleased to introduce the Shared Services Leaders Panel. The Leaders Panel consisted of three shared services practitioners with combined experience of more than 64 years. They were: Geoff Lewins, Director of Financial Strategy, Rolls-Royce; Jo Hart, Director of Shared Services Finance, A&N Media Finance Services Ltd; and Kirk Wilkenson, Director Business Process Architecture & Change, Shared Services, Colt Technology Services. Our Leaders Panel is your voice during the plenary sessions – asking the sort of questions of our speakers that you always wished you asked but didn’t dare.
Attendance at the Annual Shared Services and BPO Conference is free of charge to invited delegates.
