The Forum starts at noon with a pre-lunch networking drinks reception during which an informative presentation will take place to set the scene, outlining some of the key findings of our global 2017 Women in Treasury Study. This will be followed by lunch in the ballroom, during which a lively and insightful panel discussion will take place, focusing on some of the broad themes highlighted by the respondents of this year’s Study.

We are delighted to be joined this year by a superb line-up of speakers comprising:

  • Cornelia Hesse – Head of Controlling, BASF Global Finance Shared Services

  • Frances Hinden – VP, Treasury Operations, Shell International Ltd

  • Sabine McIntosh – Managing Director, Global Head of Account Services, Treasury and Trade Solutions, Citi

  • Deborah Mur – Head of Global Liquidity and Cash Management, HSBC France

The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer session, giving the opportunity for the audience to pose their own questions to the panel and make their voices heard.
