Derek Gallimore is as passionate about outsourcing as he is for business and entrepreneurialism.
He started his first business venture at the tender age of 17, when he become a self-employed personal trainer. He quickly graduated from this field and moved into other forms of business including property development, standard commerce and online business.
Derek was born in the UK, but raised in New Zealand, and lived in London, Sydney, Manila and throughout Europe. He has traveled extensively, and aligns to no one country or culture.
This blend of business and travel led Derek to have a natural affinity to the outsourcing and remote-working concepts - when he came across them.
Outsourcing is a booming industry. The concept of developed countries sourcing cheaper back-end services and manufacturing from developing countries has been happening in some form or another for many decades - even centuries.
However with the advent of advanced technologies and and communication, physical distances and national borders are becoming increasingly irrelevant. As a result outsourcing and is set to grow at an incredible pace. It will significantly disrupt the world's labour norms, as we know them.
Outsourcing is a fantastic advancement for all. It offers huge benefit to the developing countries which it employees. It also provides a great economic boon for the developed countries which utilise it.
Derek Gallimore believes that every business owner should be fully aware, and utilise this incredible opportunity. In response to general lack of information, he has founded Outsource Accelerator. Outsource Accelerator is the world's foremost independent and unbiased source of outsourcing information advisory and education.
