Outsourcing Forum 2012


Date: 12 June 2012


We are delighted to invite you to our International Outsourcing Forum.

The Bird & Bird Outsourcing Forum 2012 is an opportunity for you to join with clients, colleagues and contacts to discuss recent experiences, trends and best practice in a series of 3 focussed, interactive workshops, led by recognised global experts. The insights provided will be of equal relevance to technology outsourcings and business process deals.

In addition to the workshops our opening address will provide a practical overview on the current state of the outsourcing market. Delegates will also be provided with the opportunity to engage in a structured Q&A session, consolidating the key themes of the Outsourcing Forum. There will be numerous opportunities for delegates to network during the Forum.

The Bird & Bird team is pleased to be joined by Rick Simmonds, the Managing Partner of Alsbridge plc, recently ranked as the world's No. 1 outsourcing advisor.
