World's largest and most innovative companies to share their game-changing working capital strategies at exclusive event
SAN FRANCISCO, September 12, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Taulia is thrilled to announce the full speaker line-up for the upcoming Working Capital Summit that it’s hosting in San Francisco on Oct. 10, 2018. The roster brings together game-changing economic, corporate, finance and technology speakers to showcase the cash transformation that’s taking place in leading businesses globally.
Despite the growing importance of working capital, there has been virtually no forum in North America until now where people can learn about this developing core business discipline. In bringing together the leading practitioners in this space, Taulia is finally giving those responsible for working capital the opportunity to meet, gain invaluable insights and apply them into their own organizations.
George Papanikolopoulos, working capital lead for Telstra, describes the change taking place. “Organizations like Telstra need to be prepared for unexpected events that require capital and understand where they can source that capital. To meet this challenge, we have thought deeply about balance sheet ‘fitness’ and the untapped benefits of better leveraging our investment in working capital that encompasses our supply chain. This requires completely new methodologies and enabling technologies.”
“There’s a quiet cash flow revolution taking place,” says Matthew Stammers, Taulia’s head of marketing. “The leading companies are transitioning from out-moded working capital management tactics into true enterprise cash flow optimization. It’s these companies that are setting themselves up to be the winners of the future by having the cash resources they need to compete and win. In hosting this summit and featuring these speakers, our aim is to open up the cash opportunity to all companies to better compete and thrive.”
Featured speakers include George Papanikolopoulos from Australian telco leader Telstra, Patrick Loeuis from U.S. consumer goods giant Newell Rubbermaid and Andrew Wilson, former head of working capital at pharma AstraZeneca. The summit also features leading economic forecaster John Ferguson from The Economist Intelligence Unit and Lex Greensill, founder and CEO of Greensill Capital. A full list of speakers and their topics can be found here.
The working capital summits are an integral part of Taulia’s ongoing commitment to help businesses liberate the cash required to thrive in the digital age. Registration is free but limited.
