COVID-19 Reality Corporate Treasurers Online Round Table

VU Amsterdam 13-05-2020 7:41 AM
Categories: Treasury

Reaction, Resilience, Recovery and New Reality in Treasury.

What is the covid-19 reality for corporate treasurers in various environments and how to deal with this new reality? This is the topic of the Corporate Treasurers Online Round Table that will be organized by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam for potential students and alumni of the postgraduate Executive Treasury Management & Corporate Finance programme. Four experienced and educated registered treasurers (RT) will speak from their experience and, in dialogue with the participants, try to look into the future.

Speakers work in various industries: retail, tourist, trading, logistics and manufacturing, which all feel covid-19 consequences in their own way. They will inform the audience how their first reaction was and that of their company. About how they manage the crisis and show resilience, how they recover from first effects, and how they have adjusted or will adjust to the new reality.

The event will take place in the evening and will last 75 minutes. The round table will be kicked off with brief introductions and presentations. Input from participants is expected and appreciated. Just like classes at the university, interactions will connect theory & day-to-day reality and raise the quality of the round table. All are expected to leave the event with practical do’s and don’ts. Herbert Rijken on behalf of the VU will be your host, Pieter de Kiewit will moderate the session.

This is a cost-free online event on 24 June 2020 and will start at 7:00 PM CET. As this is an interactive event, the organizer, VU Amsterdam, has the right to select who can (not) join. Further details will be shared with participants in due time. Pre-register for this event via this link, so that we can keep you informed.
