"The GPA team are very helpful, professional and welcoming. This really made the UK Payroll Summit very enjoyable as well as being extremely 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!"

" The trainer delivered an excellent training course which really helped prepare for the implementation of a new provider. He is passionate about his area of expertise and takes time to clearly explain the relevant aspects of payroll in a simple yet effective manner. He was happy to talk in detail at an individual level during breaks, as well as make reference to specific questions within the group for knowledge share where it was relevant. I would highly recommend the Global Payroll Association to anyone involved in payroll "

The range of services from country specific training to a fantastic new app have all been well received by my team with content delivered by experts. Would highly recommend membership to any organisation. "
