Shared Services. Shivani serves as the Vice President of Global Shared Services at Berlitz.

Overseeing Order to Cash, Procure to Pay, Payroll, Real Estate, Franchise support and all

supporting systems, the department seeks to modernize its operations with the goal of

becoming “World Class”. Prior to joining Berlitz, Shivani ran the Business Systems

Transformation (BST) Program at McGraw-Hill. As the business continued to evolve, the BST

program sought to transform the Lead-to-Cash function by simplifying manual processes,

integrating systems, and enhancing the customer experience. The program transformed the

way MHE tracked opportunities, quotes, price products, place orders and record/report their

revenue. Prior to BST, she led the Global Procure to Pay team. The primary goal was to make

the department cost-neutral or “free” to the business by maximizing rebates and discounts as

well as simplifying or automating day-to-day processes – without reducing onshore headcount.

Prior to joining McGraw-Hill in 2013, she worked in various consulting, technology, audit and

business process re-engineering roles across a variety of industries and with a particular focus

on technology-enabled process improvements. She holds a BSBA in Management Information

Systems from The Ohio State University and a black belt in Lean Six Sigma.

8:35 AM Women in the C-Suite

In the past decade we have seen a greater prevalence of gender diversity in executive positions. While this has been a fantastic start, it needs to be taken further. A study by the IMF found that women comprise less than 20% of executive board members at financial institutions. In addition, a study by Cision PR found that 77% of American C-Suite Executives admit they have a diversity problem and yet many aren’t sure how to remedy this. By starting a discussion and acting on this issue we can help create a push to be more inclusive in the C-suite. Including diversified perspectives helps us learn and grow as business leaders as we absorb new ideas and viewpoints to enhance our overall schema.
