I attended The Treasurer’s Deals of the Year Awards ceremony last night, along with 150 esteemed guests from the world of treasury and finance, and what a special event! Sponsored by Lloyds Bank – thank you – and held at the impressive Banking Hall, a former Lloyds Bank building, this was a wonderful introduction for me to an ACT event, being just my second day in role as Chief Executive. I can say that the evening was brilliant, and I am so proud to be part of this highly professional team. I met some wonderful people too – in many cases finding we had a connection from the past in terms of common employer or colleague, or birthplace (it’s a small world!). And of course I was very impressed indeed by the winning and highly commended teams, and what they had achieved, often with quite limited resource. So well done again to all, including those who did not win this time, but have been doing some great treasury deals all the same. There is always next year!
