At this time, Treasury Today Asia’s first concern is for our staff, our readership and our whole community’s wellbeing and therefore we made some changes to the delivery of our Women in Treasury Singapore Forum 2020. It has never been more important to bring the community together and so this year’s Women in Treasury Singapore Forum took place from 2pm to 3:30pm SGT on Tuesday 14th July as a digital event. A new era with new challenges requires a new way to create interactive experiences and to connect our community.

Our Women in Treasury Singapore Forum featured a vibrant and insightful virtual panel discussion, with four leading industry speakers debating some of the key topics highlighted by the respondents of our Women in Treasury Global Study 2020, in association with State Street Global Advisors. This lively debate was moderated by Sophie Jackson, Publisher & Head of Strategic Content, Treasury Today Group.

Our panellists were:

  • Rashmi Joshi – CFO and Whole Time Director, Castrol India

  • Seng Ti Goh – Senior General Manager, Finance & Administration, Isuzu Motors Asia Ltd and President, Association of Corporate Treasurers (Singapore)

  • Aigerim Bekzhanova – Business Controller, Vanderlande

  • Tiana Sheridan – Vice President, Sales Manager, Cash Management, BlackRock

The panel discussion included a fabulous opportunity for everyone in the audience to express their views and put questions to the speakers. With the use of live polling and an interactive question and answer session, attendees enjoyed a truly immersive experience, allowing the panel to discuss and respond to their views in real-time.

This online event presented a rare chance to hear about the career journeys of our inspirational speakers and be part of our well established lively and informative discussions.

Coverage of the event will appear in Treasury Today Asia and online.
