Sameer Africa, Transcentury, Gulf Energy, British American Tobacco, East African Breweries, Citi and Airtel Kenya… are some of the companies speaking at the region’s second ACT East Africa Treasury Forum on 7 February in Kenya. If you are a corporate treasurer or finance professional, can you afford to miss out on your free place? As the treasury community grows in East Africa, here are FOUR reasons to book your place:
1. A programme by treasurers – for treasurers!
As the only Royal Chartered body for treasurers, we speak directly to your treasury peers and colleagues to ask what they want to cover. This year’s theme: maximising value, impact and efficiency, is full of content and practical case studies, delivered by a line-up of 24+ experienced speakers.
From building optimised, effective cash management to leveraging bank relationships, new direction on trade finance programmes and the latest thinking on innovation and risk management, there is something for everyone to take back to the office. You can view the programme here.
2. A GREAT venue
Returning to the Windsor Golf Hotel & Country Resort in Nairobi was an easy choice from the great feedback we had last time we were here. Set in scenic surroundings, the venue is 15 minutes from the business district and 45 minutes from the airport.
3. Networking, networking, networking
With event partners including Citi, Finastra, 360T and Slaughter & May exhibiting at the event, we’re expecting a lively, engaged audience during the networking breaks where you will meet new colleagues and share ideas. Plus, the evening will include a networking drinks reception (sponsored by Slaughter & May), providing plenty of time to discuss the day’s content!
4. Don’t just take our word for it:
“All in all, the inaugural conference was a success in many ways – the venue was amazing, the programme was just right and the networking sessions were very lively! The ACT will grow from strength to strength considering the turnout – many of the delegates expressed positive feedback in terms of setting up a treasury function as a result of the conference. I felt the treasury profession in Africa is now getting the recognition it deserves.” Sydney Wechuli, Nairobi Securities Exchange
