Raising Profile, Promoting Thought Leadership, Delivering Leads

Through our Commercial Services division, the GSA is able to provide services for organisations who wish to raise their profile in the sourcing industry.  With over 18,000 sourcing contacts and 360+ corporate members, partnering with the GSA is a great way to create awareness of your organisation and to communicate at market level with businesses who actively engage in sourcing.

Organisations choose to engage with the GSA through our Commercial Services division to:

  • Raise their company profile and create awareness amongst those businesses who actively engage in sourcing
  • Develop new business leads and enhance new and existing relationships
  • Promote thought leadership alongside the GSA brand, and assert their voice of authority across the key levers driving an increasingly complex sourcing landscape. 


The GSA can help achieve the above by:

  • Promoting and giving your brand high industry visibility through a wide range of digital marketing services, targeted event sponsorship and advertising in our eBooks and online publications
  • Organising bespoke lead-generating events for your company
  • Developing new research and gaining responses

Our team has over 50 years’ experience in marketing, communications, PR, event and programme management. We are passionate about the sourcing industry and highly enthusiastic market-level operators, delivering over 70 market engagement events in 2017 for the UK alone.

So, whether you want to advertise in sourcingfocus, speak at the GSA UK Symposium, sponsor any one of our three GSA Award programmes, or have increased visibility on the GSA's Supplier Directory - we can put together a programme that's tailored to your specific needs and budget considerations.


How does it work?

Based on your budget and desired outcomes, we can develop a bespoke full-service marketing programme that integrates both the benefits of membership and your chosen GSA commercial services.

We map all activities across a timeline which allows you to see how you are using the membership, what value you are getting and when, what new leads are being driven into your business and how it integrates with your own plans.

"As a relatively new player in the UK outsourcing market we were seeking to work with a well-respected industry thought-leader with an established senior executive network. The GSA has not disappointed.

Working closely with the GSA we developed a tailored Arise/GSA customer service event which gave us the opportunity to engage with a number of our strategic business prospects and share innovative ideas and best practice with them. The event was a great success and has led to a number of new relationships being created. 

Throughout the project the GSA team worked enthusiastically and diligently to ensure that every detail was attended to and that our objectives for the event were met. We would not hesitate to recommend them."

‘Symphony Ventures got involved with the GSA through the newest member of their management team, and GSA Council member, Andrew Burgess.  The decision to be a sponsor at the 2015 Symposium was fully justified from the level of interest that Andrew’s talk on Robotic Process Automation generated, which has led to a number of new opportunities for us. Overall, the event was extremely well organised with a very high quality of speakers and attendees. Definitely one of the key events in the sourcing calendar.'
