“Acting Local, Winning Global” brings together two of the leading players in the shared services and outsourcing space.

PwC was one of the first companies to set up an outsourcing operation in Poland back in 1998 and now runs the region’s largest shared services advisory team from its centre of excellence in Kraków. The team consults globally to the world’s top companies on shared services and outsourcing strategy and implementation and has assisted many companies to locate and develop in CEE.

ASPIRE is Poland’s leading network of shared services, outsourcing and IT professionals, representing more than 30 centres across the South of Poland and over 12,000 practitioners.

In the two years since the association was established by centre managers in Kraków, ASPIRE has developed a strong and innovative methodology and platforms for companies to work together to network, share information and explore common solutions to industry challenges.

The focus of the conference will be to draw on the collective experience of participants, with interactive plenary sessions and workshops designed to help all of us make new contacts, strengthen relationships and get a clearer picture of the future of the industry in the region and what we can do to deliver that future.
