“I have been a subscriber to Outsource magazine for little under a year and in that time I truly believe this professional publication has helped me build formative opinions in all aspects of my job role. From quoting passages by their front-line columnists within my academic works to the humour provided by their ‘Inside Source’ and ‘The Last Word’ regulars, Outsource magazine provides a beneficial insight across the whole Sourcing Lifecycle, from Sourcing Strategy to Exit Management. I would have no hesitation in recommending Outsource magazine and its weekly OutsourceXpress online publications to anyone whose job role is remotely connected to outsourcing”

We believe this is going to be the start of a successful collaboration between the two parties, bringing together the Outsource community’s significant insights and experiences with ACCA’s research programme to the benefit of ACCA members and our employer partnerships around the world.”
Jamie Lyon, Head of Corporate Sector, ACCA

“SDI is delighted to count Outsource magazine as a valuable partner helping us achieve our objectives. The audience is just right. The editorial is top notch. The design is superb. With their relaunch in 2009 they catapulted the entire space forward and their offering continues to impress. They seem to develop new ways to help us engage their audience every time we speak to them. SDI is both excited by, and looks forward to, our ongoing relationship with the Outsource team and channel.”
Douglas McCheyne, Senior International Marketing Executive at Scottish Development International

“When Outsource presented their new Xplores engagement mechanism we instantly saw immense value and future objectives being reached. It ticks all the boxes: long-term, thought-leadership, cross-channel, brand-building and lead-generation. Most importantly though, it allows us to engage with the Senior Decision-making audience that Outsource reaches, with full respect for their intelligence and total transparency regarding the relationship.”
Darian Sims, European Marketing Director, Oce Canon

Outsource magazine is the industry bible for outsourcing professionals and provides thought-leadership on the market”

“The new digital version of the magazine provides the best of both worlds – depth of detail and high-quality visuals with the portability of online accessibility. And of course the content is as compelling and spot-on as always. A ‘must have’ resource for those involved with the sourcing market.”
Stan Lepeak, Director, Research, Shared Services & Advisory, KPMG

Outsource magazine is a great source for HR Executives currently outsourcing to remain aware of industry information and best practices. As well, it is one of the few publications I have seen, dedicated to outsourcing, that attract an HR buyer audience, vs. merely other outsourcing advisors and companies. The articles and interviews contained in each issue provide a good insight to current processes, best practices and upcoming trends across a wide breadth of outsourcing services and platforms!”

Outsource has become a great reference point and referral link for me to many Canadian organisations.”
