Treasurers are managing one of the most critical assets of a company – cash. The treasury function is the company’s financial nerve center, supporting the entire organisation’s financial goals.
There is therefore a need for all departments which interact with treasury to have an understanding of how treasury management works. Treasury, cash and liquidity management integrates with the following departments: Sales and Distribution, Purchasing and Procurement, Human Resources & Payroll, Financial Accounting, Account Payables and Receivables, and Technology.
The ability of the above departments to supply accurate and timeous information through an efficient technological system impacts heavily on the effectiveness of the treasury department in giving insights on treasury, cash and liquidity management. Strategic level personnel from the above departments must therefore have an understanding of treasury management and implications of their processes on the biggest asset of the company – cash, because, whether you are a wizard of finance or a non-financial manager, performance measurement ALWAYS boils down to Rands and cents!
Join us in a fast-paced, insightful workshop which will demystify the process of cash & Treasury management if your current position requires you to interact with Treasury.
In just two days, you will:
- Get a firm grasp of the treasury function and how your department /function impacts on corporate treasury, and how your activities impact on the cash position and liquidity forecasts of the organisation
