Treasury Today’s first concern is for our whole community’s wellbeing, therefore following the success of our 2020 virtual delivery, we ran the Women in Treasury APAC Forum 2021 digitally.
The APAC Forum took place from 2pm to 3.30pm SGT on Thursday June 17th as a digital event, creating interactive experiences enabling attendees to enjoy a truly immersive event.
We heard from senior decision makers from some of the region’s largest corporations, to understand what is important to them and enjoyed the opportunity to interact with many of them. The Forum featured a vibrant and insightful panel discussion to debate some of the key topics highlighted by the respondents of our Women in Treasury Global Study, sponsored by State Street Global Advisors.
Our panellists were:
Stephen Hogan – Vice President Regional Treasury, Deutsche Post DHL
Deborah Ho – Country Head of Singapore and Regional Head of Southeast Asia at BlackRock
Rebekah Wong – Head of Singapore Wholesale Payments and Head of APAC Market Management & Strategic Execution for Wholesale Payments, J.P. Morgan
