Time: 8:30 am - 10:00am

Working Capital.  It remains an area of focus for treasury teams across all sectors and geographies.  Although there may be slight variations in working capital requirements from industry to industry, or even within an industry, it continues to serve as a measure for your company’s efficiency, liquidity and overall health and stability in the short-term.

Join Us:  TMAC is pleased to welcome you to our next educational session where a panel of Canadian practitioners and subject-matter experts discuss how working capital management (WCM) has evolved in recent years, how emerging technology can act as a lever to enable success of WCM strategies, and real-world challenges they have experienced in their own WMC projects.  The session will be moderated by Victoria Patterson, senior treasury management advisor at Citibank Canada.  This informative panel discussion is intended to present both a tactical and strategic approach to optimizing your organization’s working capital and is ideal for treasury and procurement professionals at all levels.
