ATEB Treasury Summit

Join us on November 19 at our Treasury Summit

Continuing our cadence of two ATEB Treasury Summits per year, the ATEB Board and event sponsors Deloitte and Kyriba have the pleasure of inviting you to our next half-day Treasury Summit on Tuesday 19 November 2019, to be held at Deloitte’s office at Brussels Airport.

While our last few Treasury Summits had a strong focus on technology and digital evolution, this time we will also cover some other developments in the Treasury space. After an introduction by the ATEB Board on memberships and future programme, the conference will break into 2 streams. One stream will focus on funding and sustainability, while the other will cover a few different aspects, ranging from tax evolutions, over bank relationship management to business intelligence and analytics. After the break-out sessions, we will regroup in the auditorium for an inspirational speech on innovation in leadership by Lars Sudmann, renowned for his TED-talks and other sessions on leadership and innovation.

The Treasury Summit will end with cocktails and walking dinner, sponsored by Kyriba.

Sustainable Financing: The Banker’s View

As the sustainability conversation gains in popularity across the globe, every part of a corporation – including treasury – isnow expected to contribute to and help advance the organization’s overall environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy.

There are many ways in which treasurers can get involved in ESG, such as:
• Evaluate their bank counterparties and select partners and products based on specific criteria including ESG credentials.
• Embark on their own ESG projects

In this Session, HSBC’s Marine de Bazelaire’s will explain, why and how treasurers should embed ESG into their daily processes.
