Why You Should Attend!

We invite you to join Argyle Executive Forum, and its partner, American Express, for a look into how the role of the treasurer continues to evolve into a highly strategic leadership position.

Today’s treasurer is a proactive, forward-thinking strategist who is constantly staying abreast of industry benchmarks, news, emerging trends, and technology. The treasurer forms strong partnerships internally and externally to ensure every part of the organization has what it needs to be successful today and tomorrow.

Among the topics we will consider are:

  • How the responsibility of the treasurer is broadening from ensuring there is enough cash on hand to investing strategically to continue to set the business up for success in the future
  • Achieving a balance between mitigating risk and maximizing liquidity
  • Staying on top of key trends, including those in technology, talent management, and global growth
