About Source 2 Pay Summit
The best feedback EBG can get is learning real experience exchange took place during one of our summits. People meet and connect, continue to meet and connect and help each other grow and develop further. We do not do meetings where the only focus is on how good everybody is performing.
We know all have room for improvement and the topics we discuss can be shared by all – all companies struggle more or less to ensure company spend is managed and developed as part of the overall corporate plan.
We focus a lot on change management – EBG was created by Anna Bjärkerud – with a degree in behavioral science – due to the challenges all companies face when it comes to changing human behavior. And processes, technology and strategies aside – at the end it is all about people.
The above is a snapshot from a poll currently live at the summit website (feel free to share your experiences it is completely anonymous and you get instant feedback – win-win. The survey is found here).
