Welcome to Shared Services Week Australasia
We recently held our 14th Annual Australasian Shared Services & Outsourcing Week in Melbourne. From 11th to 14th April 2011, over 470 shared services and sourcing professionals came together under one roof to share ideas, best practices, lessons learnt and helped to shape the future of the industry in A/NZ.
It was officially the biggest gathering of shared services professionals in the Asia Pacific region – SSO Week Australasia truly evolved from a conference into a community!
Don’t just take our word for it – see what our attendees thought:
I wanted to pen a quick email to thank you and the SSON team for putting on such an amazing event in Melbourne recently. I was particularly impressed at the quality of the event, the speakers, and the way that proceedings were conducted. I was also really pleased with the way you worked with speakers like myself to ensure that our contribution was so relevant. I can honestly say that of all the conferences I have attended and spoken at (approx 20) that this was the best in terms of management, presentation and outcome.
