The transatlantic economy accounts for 50 percent of global GDP and supports some 15-million American and European jobs. Shared Services and Outsourcing are parts of this. And you'll learn how to put these to work for your company, whether you're a large US-based corporation or a mid-market US firm.
On June 28th, your day will flow with opportunities to listen, learn and talk. At the heart of the summit are four panel discussions. And much more. See the agenda page, above, for a full description of the day's activities.
In the evening, the awards gala provides an exceptional opportunity for peer-to-peer networking. During the day, you've talked with panelists, jurists, US companies that already have shared service centers, and other attendees. Now, it all comes together in an exciting review of nominations and awards. Categories include:
Providers of solutions in shared services and outsourcing will be nominated prior to the event (see Nominate button at top of page). We like a large jury (30 individuals) because this allows attendees -- people like you -- to obtain the most in-depth and helpful insight from a diversity of experienced executives. Selected jury members appear here.
