Last year’s forum

On Thursday 6th October 2016 we brought our highly acclaimed Treasury Today Women in Treasury Forum to New York for the first time. This exciting event is already one of the annual industry highlights in London and Singapore and is a firm fixture in the diaries of women and men right across these regions.

The venue was the InterContinental Barclay hotel in Midtown East and the Forum was attended by corporates and their banking and technology partners from across the US.

The Women in Treasury Forums are a key part of our global Women in Treasury initiative and provide an unrivalled opportunity to personally connect with some of the most successful women in our industry. This year’s panel comprised:

  • Microsoft – Anita Prasad, General Manager, Treasury Capital Management

  • Omnicom Group – Maeve Robinson, Assistant Treasurer

  • HSBC – Diane Reyes, Group General Manager, Global Head of Global Liquidity and Cash Management

  • Wells Fargo – Diane Schumaker-Krieg, Managing Director, Global Head of Research, Economics and Strategy

This exciting event presented a superb opportunity to hear our four renowned industry leaders share their insights and personal experiences and debate some of the key issues highlighted by our Women in Treasury Study. The panel discussion was followed by an open Q&A session, enabling guests to make their voices heard and pose questions to the panel. Coverage of the event will appear in the January/February 2017 edition of Treasury Today.
