Chazey Partners and JPD Financial Successfully Co-hosted a London Shared Services Roundtable

Chazey Partners, a practitioners-led global management advisory business and JPD Financial, have successfully hosted a Shared Services Roundtable in London Ritz Hotel on 28th June 2017.  The event was very well attended with senior executives from Shell, AXA Partners, GSK, and many other organizations.

The event focused on the value and significance of offshoring and the impact of some of current events like Brexit, Trump and disruptive technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.  At the Roundtable, Phil Searle, CEO and Founder of Chazey Partners kicked off the discussion with an informative opening session on the latest trends of Shared Services & Outsourcing.  The event continued a discussion providing perspectives and thoughts from many of the event attendees as well as a group of distinguished panelists from variety of industries. Panelists included Jim Foster (CFO EMEA at First Data), Fraser Kirk (VP of Global HR Shared Services at Brambles) and Nick Hunt (Managing Director of Europe at JPD Financial).

Following the group discussions, Daniel Lawrence, Chazey Partners’ Regional Director for Europe delivered a session on Robotic Process Automation including a demonstration of actual ‘Robots’ activities in common Shared Services processes.  This Roundtable event started with a three-course lunch and ended with a drink reception where networking and discussions were carried on.

“We are delighted to co-host this event with JPD Financial and have the opportunity to discuss such important topics with many distinguished professionals”, said Phil Searle, “The concepts of Shared Services has been in practice for around 30 years now and continue to evolve.  We are again entering a new era with numerous factors creating uncertainty but also opportunity.  Despite the changing environment, it is still critical to balance the four critical success factors of people, process, client and technology for any business transformation or Shared Services operations.”
