Dallas (PRWEB) June 13, 2006
Officials with Alsbridge recently announced the benefits and growing popularity of Outsourcing Leadership Forums (OLF) http://www.outsourcingleadership.com/events_rsvp.shtml among leading executives from top US companies across the country. OLFs serve as an exclusive venue for top executives and outsourcing professionals to discuss and share ideas and case studies on outsourcing, shared services and offshoring transactions in a limited no-sales environment that promotes open communication unique to any other forum.
“We’re pleased with the feedback we’ve received from OLF attendees,” noted Ben Trowbridge, Chairman of the Outsourcing Leadership Forum and CEO of the sponsoring company Alsbridge. “100 % of respondents to our follow-up questionnaire noted they would not only recommend the OLF series to a colleague, but would consider attending future OLFs for ongoing support for their sourcing ventures. In fact, with the interest we’ve seen thus far, we anticipate developing an OLF program that will focus on frequent regional councils driven by members to promote continuous learning.” Alsbridge http://www.alsbridge.com is the leading independent advisory firm on outsourcing, shared services and offshoring and host of the Outsourcing Leadership Forum.
OLFs, which are only available to buyers or clients of outsourcing services, is led by top industry professionals who have a proven track record in the sourcing, shared services and offshoring sectors. Each speaker focuses on current case studies and research relevant to the audience’s needs. Issue sharing and industry panel discussions foster open dialogue among executives who share their concerns, challenges and successes in ongoing and planned sourcing initiatives. Press and providers of outsourcing services do not attend OLF events which supports the no-sell environment.
“We began the OLF series as a means to bring industry leaders and outsourcing professionals together in an environment where the discussions can be frank and open,” added Trowbridge. “We expected the OLF series to be well received in the marketplace, simply because a fresh perspective on outsourcing has been in demand by top companies and executives. We’re excited to see this program become a key part of many organization’s outsourcing initiatives.”
