Working Capital Optimization and ERM at EuroFinance in Geneva
Anne Friberg, Senior Director of Knowledge Exchange at NeuGroup, leads panels featuring several peer group members.
I’m delighted that I will again be chairing part of “The Treasurer: Agent of Change” stream (stream 4) at the upcoming EuroFinance in Geneva, International Treasury Management conference at the end of September.
On the afternoon of September 26, when conference goers have just fueled up in the refreshment break, we’ll tackle “Working capital and cash optimization across the business.” This session is designed to look at ways to unlock working capital from supply chains – to the tune of some $6 trillion in US and European companies alone, according to The Hackett Group! By leveraging data and analytics to understand how cash is deployed in an organization, treasury can work to release it to improve balance sheets, reduce cost of goods sold and enhance business agility.
After that, I’ll moderate a panel that includes two fellow Swedes, including esteemed NeuGroup member, Johan Nystedt, Treasurer of Conagra Brands, and Ericsson’s Magnus Attoff, Head of Financial Risk Management & Internal Bank. Rounding out the panel is Dr. Michael Reuter, Head of Corporate Treasury, Henkel AG. The topic of this panel is “Total risk management” or enterprise risk management (ERM) and will focus on how treasurers can contribute to the management of risks that go beyond their traditional remit of financial risks. We’ll discuss the top risks facing these three companies, their nature and velocity as well as their potential impact and of course how they are mitigated. Do you know what your greatest risks are and how fast they are coming toward you?
Join me in Geneva on September 26 at 4pm! I hope to see you there.
