To help corporate treasurers and chief financial officers plan and prepare for technological disruption and possible crises that come from sudden change, the 2018 AFP Executive Institute, sponsored by PNC Bank continues Tuesday.
On Day 2 of the Executive Institute, world-renowned negotiator, Dr. Dan Shapiro, will give a session titled, “Communicating Like a Negotiator.” Drawing on his groundbreaking research on what motivates people to be better negotiators, Shapiro will discuss how to approach tough negotiations, and review the hidden forces that often lead to an impasse as well as present a practical method to overcome them.
“It’s never been more important for treasury and finance leaders to possess strategic communications expertise and a firm grasp of technology,” said AFP President and Chief Executive, Jim Kaitz. “Change is occurring faster than ever, while crises arise in an instant. The 2018 Executive Institute agenda is designed to help attendees meet these specific challenges.”
Also on Tuesday, don't miss the AFP Executive Institute session, Libor: The World’s Biggest Number in Transition. Thomas Hunt, CTP, Director, Treasury Services, Association for Financial Professionals; Ann Battle, Assistant General Counsel, International Swaps And Derivatives Association; Jennifer Earyes, Director, Treasury Risk, Navient; Ming Lee, Principal, Oliver Wyman; Mack Makode, VP, Treasurer, Under Armour, discuss how Libor is set to lose its status as the global interest rate benchmark and that title will likely be taken over by an Alternative Reference Rate (ARR).
Created exclusively for senior treasury and finance executives, attendance at the AFP Executive Institute is limited to corporate practitioners with the title of treasurer, chief financial officer, vice president of finance, assistant treasurer or controller.
“As fintech rapidly advances our business, it is critical that we employ open and honest communication in real time with clients, no matter the situation,” said James Graham, head of Treasury Management at PNC Bank. “The AFP Executive Institute is combining critical topics to educate how to adapt to new environments, while successfully navigating risks and issues.”
