Taking the Wheel: How Treasury is Delivering Value and Leadership
With the increase in global competition among organizations, the role of Treasury has grown more important in support of critical enterprise-wide strategic objectives. While Treasury teams currently play a pivotal role in most organizations, many are now stepping into greater leadership positions, helping to guide the business forward. In this session, a panel shares how their Treasury teams have used cross-functional team leadership to lead to innovative solutions, and how Treasury “took the wheel” to create value for their firms. Gain vital insight into how Treasury can raise its profile and deliver greater value for the organization.

Attendance to the AFP Executive Institute is limited to corporate practitioners with the title of treasurer, chief financial officer, vice president of finance, assistant treasurer or controller.
