This episode is part four of our Strategic Treasurer Series on treasury roles. Although we are exploring different specific roles in treasury, it is often required for treasurers to wear many hats and fit into a hybrid role. Listen in as Craig Jeffery and Paul Galloway discuss the mindset needed for maintaining a hybrid role.
Our previous episode on treasury roles covered the differences between the strategic and operational roles. Today, we will continue the discussion by looking at mastering the operations side. Your daily operational responsibilities are the financial backbone of your business. Craig Jeffery and Paul Galloway discuss the most common operational roles and activities, what mindset to have to succeed in these roles, and what you need to know to maintain efficiency.
New technologies are always showing up, but you need to keep an eye out for what are called “moonshots.” These radical innovations bring major changes to the way companies do business. In this episode, Craig Jeffery talks with Royston Da Costa of Ferguson plc and Tiffany Wan of Bank of America on how moonshot technologies will impact your role in treasury. Set yourself apart in your field by staying aware and informed on any revolutionary innovations.
Supply chain disruptions, regulations, and war have brought an increased level of volatility to nearly all businesses. What actions are companies taking to respond and grow through this recent turbulence? In this episode, Holly Olson of AFL joins Craig Jeffery in a discussion on necessary adaptations and responses to our new business environment.
In this second episode of our Treasury Roles and Developments series, we will discuss how strategic and operational roles differ. While it may be more practical to have staff members dedicated strictly to one or the other of these roles, many firms with smaller treasury departments need flexible employees who can transition between the two whenever needed. Paul Galloway and Craig Jeffery, of Strategic Treasurer, both weigh in on their previous experiences jumping between the two types of roles throughout the day.
