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!
