This is the must-attend annual event for all corporate treasurers! Great networking opportunities, as well as being able to learn from the experiences of other treasury professionals. So pleased to see the ACT conference back again!
Deputy Group Treasurer, Stagecoach
I honestly think that this was the best ACT conference I have attended since my first in 2006. Both corporates and banks clearly relished getting out and about again, and MUFG was delighted with how well-received our workshop was.
Managing Director, Global Multinationals, Corporate Banking, MUFG
The keynote speaker and several of the other sessions were incredibly interesting and had key takeaways that I can apply to my job tomorrow.
