This year’s EMEA Forum took place on Wednesday 14th September at the stunning venue of Plaisterers’ Hall, London. This is the tenth year of this vibrant and hugely popular industry event and we were thrilled to be able to hold it in person and welcome over 100 attendees.
The forum opened at noon with a busy pre-lunch networking reception featuring a brief presentation from Meg Coates, Joint Publisher and Head of Operations, Treasury Today Group, of some of the key findings from our Women in Treasury Global Study 2022, proudly supported by State Street Global Advisors.
The reception was followed by a three-course lunch in the ballroom, during which a lively and thought-provoking panel discussion took place with our key speakers.
The discussion was moderated by Sophie Jackson, Joint Publisher & Head of Strategic Content, Treasury Today Group who facilitated the debate on some of the key topics highlighted by respondents of this year’s study and allowing our speakers to share their stories and advice.
Our stellar panel of industry speakers included:
Yang Xu – Senior Vice President, Global Treasurer & Corporate Development, Kraft Heinz
Malcolm Grant – Chief of Treasury, International Organization for Migration
Amber Henderson-Smart – Global Head of Client Implementation, HSBC Global Payments Solutions (GPS)
Kellie Scott – Global Product Head for Sales Finance, eCommerce Finance and Inventory Finance, Trade & Working Capital Solutions, J.P. Morgan Payments
The panel discussion was followed by a dynamic question and answer session, with many members of the audience taking the opportunity to seek advice, share their views and pose questions to the panel.
At the end of last year, Treasury Today's Women in Treasury initiative was included within the Global Diversity List 2021, a definitive register of organisations and individuals that demonstrate an unswerving commitment to the values of equality, diversity and inclusion. Thank you to all the women, non-binary people and allies who have lent their time, support and voices to this platform! This accolade allows us to continue growing and developing our initiative.
