Finance Transformation Offers You a Revolutionary Conference Experience. Enjoy Access to Three Conferences in One!

1. F&A End2End Summit

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 ? days of finance focused, outcome-based content to equip you with the knowledge, tools, and technologies to achieve your end state of transformation.

What You Can Expect During Your All Inclusive 2? Days (Yes we did this on purpose so you can be home for dinner) at F&A End2End:

  • Buyer To Buy Networking – Unbiased advice, trusted peers
  • Real-Time Benchmarking – Interactive polling provides a smarter way of collecting the information you need, when you need it, from those who matter most
  • Three Streams Providing a One Stop Shop for Every Process Owner – P2P, O2C, R2R. Why settle for a conference that only looks at one of these? Benefit from the integrated discussion and attendee profile
  • No Generalized Statements – Every Presentation Focused on Top Quartile Outcomes and the story behind the result
  • Blue Sky Room for Corporate Finance Leaders – From Score Keeper to Game Changer – Witness Global Leadership from SSON’s Mature Community
  • Maximum Continuing Education Credit – Working Groups Built Into Your Agenda for In-Depth Learning. Benefit from Peer Led Discussions on Buyer/Supplier Negotiations, Quick Wins for Your FAO Journey and Step-By-Step Tutorials on how to roll our your Finance Transformation Journey
