We’re excited to be heading to Krakow next week to participate in the two-day 6th ABSL Conference from June 16-17.
The great agenda features 80 speakers who will engage the 800 delegates in attendance in discussions about strengthening talent management and supporting regional business leaders for their next global roles in (and beyond) the industry, achieving sustainable and accelerated growth of the sector for the next decades, stimulating innovation and improvement culture, and taking advantage of the technology and client expectations revolution.
I’ll be standing on the same stage as Tony Blair (he actually shows up right after our panel discussion where I will attempt a selfie… stay tuned) when I deliver the Keynote Presentation, titled “The Four Foundations of the As-a-Service Economy: The Industry Has Spoken” at Auditorium Hall from 12:40 – 13:00 on Day 1. My talk will look at how the emergence of As-a-Service represents the most disruptive series of impacts to the traditional global services industry that we have ever seen. I’ll share some of our new research, covering more than 2,000 enterprise service buyers in the HfS global community, which paints the picture of what our industry needs to do to get ahead of this impending disruption.
HfS Executive Vice President Charles Sutherland will facilitate a Day 2 Panel, titled “Looking for more fuel! – how to build on current success?” The discussion will focus on the experience of world class GBS organizations, as well as the next SSC trends and opportunities.
Charles will be joined by a group of industry luminaries, including Tom Bangemann, Senior Vice President Business Transformation, Hackett Group; Adnan Behmen, Associate Director GBS, Procter & Gamble; Wojciech Karpinski, Services Head, Global Operations Manager, Infosys BPO Ltd.; Agnieszka Kubera, Managing Director, Accenture Poland; and Magdalena Wlodek, Director Finance Service Center Europe, PMI.
This will be a terrific two days. I hope to see you there!
