ACT Festival of Treasury Transformation 2021

Launched for the first time in 2020

As the global pandemic accelerated the pace of transformational change within treasury departments, the ACT Festival of Treasury Transformation event was launched in order to bring focus on both developments in treasury technology, and wider transformation in terms of people, working attitudes and priorities worldwide. We considered how new technological solutions could transform and help adapt the treasury function for the future.

2,596 delegates from 97 countries attended online, with 21 hours of live and on-demand content and 75 speakers.

Two keynote speakers

Chris Skinner - self-proclaimed troublemaker, author, and commentator

Known as one of the most influential people in technology, Chris Skinner joined us for a note-worthy closing keynote on Doing Digital - lessons from leaders. 


The Most Reverend Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

Former corporate treasurer, ACT member and Head of the Church of England, The Most Reverend Justin Welby joined us for a special interview by Caroline Stockmann, Chief Executive of the ACT.

What was the best thing about the ACT Festival of treasury Transformation 2020?

 It was like the Wimbledon of Treasury, hot topics and capable panellists helped me to immerse into major topics that are shaping our corporates and society overall.

 The best thing has been the panel who have been explaining these complex treasury issues, they are experts; the selection of these people was the best thing for me, I am not missing any discussion, we are together in the same wavelength.
Finance Officer, USAID Liberia  
 In the current era of rapid change, having to adapt as well as to remain resilient, the community remains a critical support element. The festival has certainly brought common ground to Treasurers all around the world, many thanks to ACT for that!
