We have today taken the difficult decision to postpone the Working Capital Forum which was due to take place this Thursday, 12th March.
While government guidance on Covid 19 has not changed, we do feel that it is in the best interests of our delegates and staff to postpone our meeting to Tuesday 30th June at the Waldorf Hilton.
I do appreciate that this change comes at short notice, and I would like to apologise for any inconvenience this causes.
The strength of the Working Capital Forum is in the opportunity for members to discuss issues with their peers and, with many corporate treasury and procurement leaders now unable to attend because of company travel restrictions, that opportunity is put at risk.
We believe the new date is better both for the safety of our attendees and for our ability to deliver the event experience you deserve. Our agenda, silver service lunches and everything that makes this event great will still be there; only the date is changing.
Your existing booking will still be valid for the new date and we look forward to seeing you then.
If you have any questions about this change, or can’t make the new date, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
The Adaugeo Media team were in Singapore last week for our biggest-ever SCF Forum Asia. The conference, organised on behalf of the Supply Chain Finance Community, has become a fixture of the Singapore treasury and procurement calendar.
Adaugeo partners with the Association of Corporate Treasurers (Singapore) and the National University of Singapore, ensuring a great attendance from corporate treasurers and NUS alumni. The next event in this series will be in Los Angeles on 7th August.
FSQS is currently used by 18 major banks building societies and insurance companies: Lloyds Banking Group, Metro Bank, Santander, TSB, Shawbrook Bank, Aldermore Bank, Clydesdale Bank, LV=, Arbuthnot Latham, Nationwide Building Society, Weatherbys Bank, the Bank of England, Bank of Ireland, Tokio Marine Kiln Virgin Money Royal Sun Alliance, Rugby and Hinckley Building Society and BNP Paribas.
'We're delighted that Adaugeo Media continues to be part of FSQS, which makes the task of onboarding us as a supplier so much faster for all its members organisations', said Adaugeo Media managing director Mike Hewitt.
SCF Forum, the supply chain finance event series run by Adaugeo Media with the Supply Chain Finance Community, goes global this year with the launch of SCF Forum Americas in Los Angeles on 7th August.
The newest event, in partnership with USC Marshall School of Business, joins the existing events, SCF Forum Europe in Amsterdam on 28th November and SCF Forum Asia in Singapore on 23rd May.
Ever wondered how Adaugeo runs an event like the SCF Forum? This video pulls back the curtain and explains what we do...
The Working Capital Forum, launched by Adaugeo Media in 2014 as a networking group for treasurers and procurement directors, is going global this Autumn with events in New York and Stockholm. The US and Swedish dates, sponsored by Basware, are the first time the Working Capital Forum has travelled outside of the UK.
In total, Basware is sponsoring three events, with the first at The Ritz in London on 19th September, the second at New York's Soho Grand (above) on 26th October and the third at the Berns hotel in Stockholm on 8th November.
The Working capital Forum now connects more than a thousand senior treasury and procurement leaders in multinational corporations. Members attend private round-table lunches, held under the Chatham House Rule to encourage open discussion between peers.
Tutors from Adaugeo Media's Transaction Banking Academy were lucky enough to spend a week at Campus BBVA in Madrid (above), delivering the sixth annual Treasury and Working Capital course for a group of BBVA team members from around the world. Above are (l-r) David Kelin, Diana Henderson and Jacco de Jong
The five-day course covered every aspect of transaction banking, including the fundamentals of regulation for transaction bankers, which was delivered as five online modules for the first time through Transaction Banking Academy's new learning portal.
The course is led by three Transaction Banking Academy tutors and includes workshops, case studies and project work based around a realistic treasury RFP from a 'virtual company' created especially for this course.
Adaugeo Media managing director Mike Hewitt (above right) joined the Financial Times and Deutsche Bank to moderate a panel and workshop session at the FT's Global Treasury Leadership Retreat. Mike spoke to Jo Hawkes, Group Treasurer at Marks and Spencer, Mark Kirkland, Group Treasurer at Constellium Group and Vandita Pant, Group Treasurer and Head of Europe at BHP Billiton, on the topic of 'The Treasurer Today'
