A Preview of
Kyriba Global Summit

By Thomas Butta November 4, 2020

Following on from my blog on why I joined Kyriba, I am proud to preview the Kyriba Global Summit, a three-and-a-half-hour virtual event in multiple languages that takes place on 10th November. The Kyriba Global Summit features stories from forward-thinking finance, treasury, and IT executives, who’ve found innovative new ways to drive success and transformation despite the unprecedented craziness of 2020. With uncertainty and volatility now the new normal and with expectations for plentiful liquidity greatly changed, it’s inspiring to see how the office of the modern CFO is embracing the transformation journey to digitally re-wire liquidity management across the global enterprise.

Here’s what you can expect at the Kyriba Global Summit.

First, we will hear from our CEO Jean-Luc Robert, who was recently honoured by Goldman Sachs among the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2020 and awarded Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2020 in San Diego. Jean-Luc will present his personal assessment of 2020, and why it’s more essential than ever for every global enterprise to adopt Active Liquidity Management across the global enterprise. He will talk about how the future of every enterprise will be dependent upon its ability to see, protect, move and optimise liquidity in real-time on a global scale.

What follows are first-hand stories from Avery Dennison, GrandVision, Şişecam, Trek Bicycles, Axa, Traveloka, Danone, Kraft-Heinz, Konica Minolta, Cooke, Coca-Cola, TataSky, Envision Energy, Eutelsat and many more.

Here are some sessions we’re particularly excited about:

  • Avery Dennison’s Senior Director of Treasury, Ramón Tolk and Senior Manager of Treasury, Sandeep Nene will describe how their global TMS implementation enabled them to improve their holistic risk management programmes, and how they successfully managed FX and funding risk during a volatile market.
  • Barış Gökalp, Global Head of Treasury at Şişecam will take you through how they centralised their payments control and reduced fraud.
  • Harmen Schuur, Treasury Operations Manager at GrandVision will discuss liquidity planning and forecasting. He will present their progressive approach, and how they support their global business with a comprehensive technology strategy.
  • Accenture’s Managing Director, Cameron Armbruster and McCormick’s IT Business Relationship Consultant, Amit Garg will dive into why IT and finance teams must re-architect third-party connectivity.

In addition, you’ll also hear from several Kyriba executives, including Kyriba CTO and industry veteran, Boris Lipiainen, who will present how Kyriba has developed an innovative Active Liquidity Network to provide real-time connectivity to global banks, data and third-parties.

Here’s the complete Kyriba Global Summit agenda.

With so many individuals working from home, we’re fully cognizant of the challenges of Zoom fatigue and the onslaught of virtual events. That’s why we specifically designed our event to be short, focused and customised to your needs.
