7.00 CPE Hours (Others)
Classroom

In view of the current COVID-19 situation, we will be changing the format of the session on 16 July 2020 into a Live Webinar. A detailed set of instructions on the Live Webinar will also be sent to you closer to date. 


There is slight revision to the course content for the sessions scheduled for 2020. The session on 16 July 2020 will also cover the evolving challenges and issues confronting the corporate treasury function due to Covid-19.


Programme Objective

The Treasury function in the corporation is no longer just dealing with the routine daily cash flow and working capital requirements of the entity. Over and above these traditional roles, and in responding to the disruptive forces arising from digitisation and technological advances, the corporate treasurer as a Value Agent is now involved in strategic planning and striking winning relationships with banks and other collaborators in sourcing and applying funds as well as a proactive partner with various business units within the enterprise. The current pandemic has placed the treasury at the crossroads of a host of impacts brought about by Covid-19 on business including liquidity concerns, supply chain breakdowns, heightening shifts to remote workplace and technological intrusions into tradiitonal treasury functions. This one-day workshop initiates and fortifies the participant in the fundamental and evolving challenges and issues confronting the corporate treasury function particularly with Covid-19 under the spotlight.
