2016 Rocky Mountain Summit- Session Highlights
The RMAFP annual Summit event is quickly approaching on Thursday, May 5, 2016 at the History Colorado Center. The Summit Committee has worked diligently to provide members with top class industry experts who will educate and inform members about new and best practices in Treasury and Finance. After lunch, the conference third set of sessions will continue to educate and inform attendees with the following sessions.
“The Changing Role of the Treasury"
Many company treasurers face challenges as they are asked to take on more and more responsibilities with fewer and fewer resources.
Gabe Guerrero, Director of Treasury and Financial Operations for Vizant, will present and discuss how treasurers can do more with less, best practices for sharing responsibilities with the CFO, and preparing for role transitions.
This session is sure to inspire Treasury professionals who in many cases share responsibilities with the Chief Financial Officer.
“Friend or Fraud – Do you know who you’re talking to?”
New fraud techniques, even when utilizing bank products such as positive pay and payment blocks and filters, are exposing companies to material losses that are becoming more difficult to protect against. As the fraudsters become more creative, learn ways corporations can expand the ways they combat fraud by developing awareness and processes beyond Treasury. The definition of ‘risk management’ is also expanding, and becoming a greater part of Treasury’s role, as we protect our companies’ greatest asset … cash.
Level 3 Communications Treasury personnel Rafael Martinez-Chapman – SVP/Treasurer and Anne Tell – Senior Director/Global Treasury, will present evolving cash fraud techniques utilized against corporations. How partnering with internal corporate groups will help identify and prevent this type of fraud. Rafael and Anne will also present how to work with banking partners to ensure utilization of all available banking fraud protection products and establish relationships so that relationship managers might detect unusual communication.
Fraud is an on-going problem in Cash Management. This session is vital to all Finance and Treasury Professionals to not only understand current fraud at hand, but also how to be proactive to avoid.
