Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 27, 2006
Alsbridge, the independent Outsourcing, Shared Services and Offshore consultancy firm, has announced a successful conclusion to the spring 2006 Outsourcing Leadership Forum (OLF) series, which ended on Wednesday, June 14, 2006 in New York City. The OLF series serves 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 no-sales environment that promotes open communication unique to any other forum. Officials with Alsbridge are currently developing the Fall OLF schedule with events planned in key locations across the U.S.
The New York event focused on key strategies surrounding offshore outsourcing and captive offshore site development. In addition, Senior Fortune 500 executives shared the lessons they’ve learned from recent offshore ventures, and focused unique country and location selection issues. Areas of focus at this event included Finance and Accounting (F&A) and HRO outsourcing.
“Though only in our first year of offering the OLF series, the response has been incredible,” noted Ben Trowbridge, Chairman of the Outsourcing Leadership Forum and CEO of the sponsoring company Alsbridge. “The OLF series has attracted the attention of thought leaders and senior executives from Fortune 500 companies across the U.S. who are wrestling with pragmatic offshore sourcing issues. I’m confident the OLF series will become a key tool in helping business executives learn new ways to reduce costs, improve processes and maximize their company value.”
Syntel, Inc., a global information technology services and business process company, served as the co-hosting sponsor for this (OLF).
“Syntel is pleased to have played a part in the spring OLF series,” noted Jonathan James, Vice President, Global Marketing at Syntel. “This forum provides an exceptional opportunity for executives to meet and discuss Best Practices with their peers, all in a very relaxed environment. The level of information, research and case studies presented during the OLF is really outstanding. And the limited size of the forums keeps the room intimate, and the dialogue and ideas among colleagues flowing.”
OLFs, which are only available to buyers / clients of outsourcing services, is led by top industry professionals who have a proven track record in the outsourcing, 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 upcoming sourcing initiatives. Press and providers of outsourcing services are excluded from attending OLF events which serves to support the open, no-sell environment.
