Today Metro Manila has edged out Mumbai to take second place in a worldwide ranking of top business process outsourcing (BPO) destinations. Now not only is the country the world’s largest exporter of voice-driven services, in non-voice BPO the Philippines is showing its prowess. Providing traditional back-office services and increasingly complex value-added services, the Philippines is currently a strong second to India and shows no sign of slowing down and the industry is expected to hit the 1 million full-time employees-mark and generate about $18 billion in revenue this year. However with the growth comes certain challenges; spotting and growing new leaders, maintaining cost arbitrage and ensuring robust governance and control to name just a few.

SSON is delighted to confirm the participation of Jonathan Yabut as the Big Idea speaker for the 5th Annual Shared Services & BPO Philippines.

Jonathan Yabut, the Season 1 winner of the hit pan-Asian reality TV show, earned his first national award - the Mansmith Fielders Young Market Master Awardee for Brand Management. This is an award bestowed to the top 7 marketers in the Philippines under the age of 35. Jonathan Yabut is also, The Apprentice Asia. Currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Jonathan Yabut, works as the Chief of Staff of AirAsia with Tony Fernandes and will share his insight into how to spot rising stars and inspire and retain young leaders at the forum.

The forum which starts on the 18th of August and runs over 2 days, is tailored specifically for those leading shared or business services in the region, as well as consultants, outsourcing and solution providers in the local market.

As veterans of the Shared Services & Outsourcing industry (our SSOW event in Singapore is now in its 17th year), SSON looks forward to another fantastic gathering of leading Shared Services and Outsourcing leaders.
