Our Speakers


I have always found the GPA events to be extremely informative with high quality speakers covering key topics, great networking opportunities and fantastic value for money too!”

A great day and so good to have so many payroll professionals under one roof! As always the speakers gave a very good overview as to what is going on in the real payroll world

The GPA team were very helpful, professional and welcoming. This really made the day most very enjoyable as well as being informative.

Registration and Networking

11.15am - 12.00pm

Session One - How to change the face of Global Payroll through the use of data.

Global payroll has a story to tell and it is one that can reveal a lot about the financial and strategic health of an organization. To share the story, this data must first be accessed and released via smart reporting and analytics tools. Standardized data, automated workflows and payroll ecosystem tech integrations pave the way for this.
Once released, this crucial data can be consolidated across countries and made available to multiple stakeholders for insight, analysis and informed decision-making. Now they can read the story behind the data, from bigger picture macro insights right down to the micro details that can make all the difference.

This session will explain the types of valuable data that may be hidden in your payroll ecosystem right now: labour costs, pay & compensation nuances, ICP performance, staff turnover stats, gender pay gaps- the list goes on.
Next, it will detail how technology can help you release the data so it can tell its story.

The session will also ask if we need data scientists in payroll. Are we missing a trick by failing to access and mine this rich data or simply not looking closely enough at what it is telling us?

Attend this fascinating session if you are keen to know what story your payroll data has to tell.

Speaker: Fidelma McGuirk, Founder & CEO Payslip

Session Two - Back to the Future: The Evolution of Global Payroll

There is a rise of interest and investment in transforming the payroll function from behind-the-desk processing payroll into data-driven decision influencers. But are you ready for the shift? Many payroll teams are on the precipice of this evolution and are uncertain what the future of payroll will look like and the role they will play. This session will take attendees through current skills and knowledge gaps and how to close them to build the future of the payroll industry.

During this session, you will learn:
Past and current trends in global payroll and how they are shaping the future
The entry points to the payroll of the future and how to get involved rather than be left behind
How to put buffers around the future of your payroll department and set out on the transformation journey
Methods to upskill your payroll team allowing them to become impact-makers on the business
