Why Attend

"At Finance Transformation, We Provide the Platform, You Transform the Opportunity. This November be one of more than 200 Transformers who will attend Finance Transformation in London"

Europe’s Largest Summit for F&A Shared Services & Outsourcing
Streamlining Finance Operations through Business Partnering, End-to-End Process and Optimised Delivery

While many of our Flagship events provide our audience a chance to holistically view the entire SS&O industry as a fully cross-functional arena, concentrating on the entire back office journey, our community members quote – “there is a need for this type of large-scale forum that deep dives into the core functions that make up the back bone of any back office delivery model, whether that model is shared services or outsourcing or a hybrid of the two.” And so we bring you 2 ½ days of finance focused, outcome-based content to equip you with the knowledge, tools, and technologies to achieve your end state of transformation.
