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. The setting for the venue was well-chosen for getting there and the meetings were well-organised and structured. There was something for everyone concerned with the complexities and issues in payroll both in the UK and globally, thank you GPA!

 "Essential global mobility tax for global payroll”.  Lee McIntyre-Hamilton, Tax Partner at Keystone Law

 This would be a whistlestop of the key things that people need to think about in global payroll. 

The right global payroll model- choose wisely - Fidelma McGuirk CEO Payslip

It is a new era for global payroll in a post-pandemic world where workforce management, vendor choice and automation are key benchmarks.  With more employees spread across more countries and continents, there is an urgent need for a global payroll solution that accommodates the different payroll requirements across countries.  The single vendor myth and silver bullet solution has been exposed and dropped- in favor of the hybrid model option.

In this session, Payslip CEO Fidelma McGuirk will outline

·      The 4 common payroll model options
·      Why a mix of payroll models is the way forward for payroll
·      Why a management framework should be considered ahead of the services option
·       How technology can make it all work

A mix of payroll models, along with whatever number of local vendors you need, is the solution that provides the flexibility and control required by global companies today.  Adopting a global management strategy underpinned by technology is the way to make it work.
