The Strategic Importance of Working Capital Management
October 22, 2020
FTI Consulting's Carlyn R. Taylor and Jonas Schofer presents a must-see webinar for key decision makers across Finance and Treasury, Strategy and Transformation, Procurement, Risk and IT on how to develop a working capital optimisation strategy.
Since the GFC, working capital management has been seen by Boards, C-Suites and leadership teams as a major strategic enabler.
COVID-19 has again put the focus squarely on how companies use their cash to maximise their performance, but also to reinforce the whole ecosystem of suppliers and buyers that supports them. Smart companies are now thinking about how working capital management can be used strategically to increase shareholder value, fund M&A, support growth and increase profitability.
Special guest speakers Julie Bishop (Former Foreign Minister and Greensill Advisory Board Member) and Carlyn Taylor (Global Co-Leader of Corporate Finance & Restructuring, FTI Consulting) share insights on what leading companies are doing to reshape their business for the new environment. Jonas Schofer (Managing Director, FTI Consulting) offers learnings from COVID-19 so far and what the latest round of company results teach us about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected financials. Matt Costello (Asia Pacific Managing Director, Greensill) discusses how companies are responding to the disruption caused by economic lockdowns to strengthen the supplier ecosystem and how working capital management will assist companies in accelerating growth, funding acquisitions and reducing debt.
