Most innovative response to the COVID-19 crisis

This year judges reviewed all of the entries received (for deals and for teams categories) and presented a special award to the entry that showed the most innovative response to the COVID-19 crisis. For example, how the team responded to new ways of working, or identified and implemented innovative solutions to the benefit of the organisation.

An award-winning virtual event

Sponsored by Lloyds Bank for over 15 years, the Awards ceremony took place virtually during an evening of celebration and glamour. Guests were able to network from their virtual tables with treasury and finance professionals from around the world, and take advantage of special hampers sent directly to their homes. All the winners are also featured in The Treasurer, the ACT's official magazine. Click here for articles on all our winners.
