What an event! The 19th Annual Shared Services and Outsourcing Week truly lived up to its title as the 'Big Daddy' of events dedicated to the SS&O industry. Over 850 Shared Services, GBS, Outsourcing and Transformation decision-makers descended upon the Omni Orlando Championsgate Resort for four days of information sharing during site tours, workshops, panel discussions, case studies, roundtable discussions and more. Whether you work in F&A, HR, Procurement, IT or a Multifunctional organization, SS&O Week had content for you.
Over 30% of our attendees were Global or Regional Heads of Shared Services and Business Services and over 50% were Director-level or above. Interested in seeing what brought them to Orlando?

Learn from 80+ Practitioner Speakers…
SS&O Week is designed for the practitioner – so it makes sense that you hear from your peers! The 2015 event was a game-changer in the industry; by instituting a "no sales pitch" speaking policy on the main program, SS&O Week guaranteed that the level of discourse would skyrocket, as every session on the main program was driven by a practitioner case study or panel discussion. That’s why our speaker faculty included CFOs, CPOs, SVPs, VPs and other Heads of Shared Services, HR and Finance from companies such as Fidelity Investments, Twitter, Cisco, Nike, Warner Brothers, Coca-Cola and other Fortune 500 organizations.
And we upped our game with our keynote presentation by inviting Andrew McAfee, associate director of the Center for Digital Business at the MIT Sloan School of Management, to enlighten the SS&O audience as to the ways information technology and robotic process automation may affect the shared services industry.

Find the Right Vendor Partner
Just because SSON has barred onstage sales pitches doesn’t mean our attendees didn’t benefit from meeting world-leading solution-providers! Our 2015 event saw over 20% growth in our exhibit hall! That means there were dozens of new organizations present from Robotic Process Automators, to BPOs, to Software Innovators to new and exciting Regional Development Agencies. Our technology demos and Location Feasibility Clinic sessions were crucial in fostering key meetings between our practitioner and provider communities.
