No Pitching Policy

Ever find yourself zoning out the moment you realise someone is selling you something you didn’t ask for? Well, we do – and so do a lot of our customers.

That’s why for 2015, SSON has done away with vendors taking the stage to pitch their products and now offers an all-practitioner led speaker faculty for our plenary and tracked sessions.

That means you’ll get access to a practitioner’s point of view every time you come to one of our events. Your time spent with us will be 100% more effective as you learn from peers about their experiences, lessons learned and their roadmap to success.

Now, don’t get us wrong – our vendors still have a very prominent place at our events, because we know that they provide an enormous amount of value and knowledge for you. (Many of the practitioners you’ll hear from owe their success to a partnership with a solution-provider!)

However, you'll now decide when and where to hear from solution-providers – be that through a 1-to-1 meeting to discuss your challenges; during a Masterclass or Workshop catering to niche topics; or by browsing new technologies on display throughout the Exhibition Hall – you'll control how much or how little you want to be sold to.

It is our primary responsibility to make sure you widen your networks and hear the content you signed up for when you attend an SS&O Week.

Here’s to a new standard in the events industry for the shared services and outsourcing community.

Where do you go from here?

If you’re a practitioner… and you want to hear from a solely practitioner-led speaker faculty dedicated to providing you neutral content – i.e. no sales pitches onstage – then learn about our upcoming flagship Asian Shared Services & Outsourcing Week:
