The Council is designed exclusively for senior executives who drive global business and shared services organizations in selected countries and industries in EMEA
Members navigate their biggest issues and learn faster and more innovative approaches to shared problems. They work with selected peers, decide on the topics of discussion themselves, and enjoy candid exchanges of insights and best practices in a confidential, vendor- and consultant-free environment.
The practices that arise from Council experience improve the effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, and business alignment of members’ shared services organizations.
