Course Highlight

Treasury management is the management of an enterprise's holdings, with the ultimate goal of managing the firm's liquidity and mitigating its operational, financial and reputational risk. 

A treasurer has a broad range of responsibilities in the modern corporation ranging from cash management to risk management.  Further, the treasurer is responsible for the proper movement of potentially large amounts of funds and the construction of hedges, which call for the integration of a comprehensive set of set of controls in a broad-based framework.

Our International Experience

Participant feedback

A course with 10 participants is very good to favour the interactivity. Thanks for the perfect course content and lecture.

Very good course, teacher, and approach. Material available on-line prior the course + request to the participants about their expectations from the course.

A pleasant and knowledgeable instructor with a lot of interaction among participants.

An excellent course for people like myself.

Congratulations! Very well done. Nothing more to add.

I really appreciated the empathy and skills of the lecturer Bruno Bosch. Also, the size of the group (7 persons) was perfect to have the necessary interactivity throughout the course.

I strongly recommended this training to my colleagues as I found it very useful.

I think this was one of the best course I've ever attended. The trainer, Mrs Maureen, was extremely pedagogic and the structure of the course was very well planned with just the right mixture of theory versus practical examples and exercises.

It was a very enjoyable course. The group was small which made it easier to be 100% involved.  The exercises and case study were absolutely great and necessary to put the theory in practice. A very knowledgeable teacher.

It was nice to have a lecturer with profound knowledge on the topic so that the level of discussion could go further than the simple basics of valuation.

Lecturer had good understanding of the subject and good understanding of practical application.

Perfect for me. Exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you for the training, which was very clear and met my needs.

The course absolutely answered my expectations and needs.

The lecturer is a knowledgeable person with real market experience which is a plus.

The lecturer is excellent. She explained clear and control good interaction with students.

Theoretical explanations good and with good interaction with audience.

There were lots of real life examples and relation to peoples own industries.

This was an excellent course and Kris made it very interesting and useful. He is highly knowledgeable, skilled and open to suggestions.

Thumbs up Maureen!
