While the role of the treasurer has changed significantly over the last decade, liquidity management still remains at the core of the function. In fact, bankers concentrate on the working capital cycle of their corporate clients to identify trade, cash management and supply chain solutions.

Join us at our upcoming course to gain insights on how to effectively and efficiently manage working capital flows and requirements.

Course highlights:

  • Understand and learn from the common pitfalls of companies that default
  • Identify issues that company directors need to consider when setting a group finance strategy
  • Understand what makes an optimal working capital position and how it varies across different industries
  • Explore the metrics that determine the cash conversion cycle and calculate the impact on cash flow from alternative strategies
  • Analyse the key drivers of Days Sales Outstanding (DSO), Days Payable Outstanding (DPO) and Days Inventory Outstanding (DIO) and identify existing opportunities that could improve the working capital cycle and enhance revenue and operating profit
  • Examine a case study where you learn how a company can quickly turn assets into cash without jeopardising the viability of the business 
  • KPMG Client Working Capital Simulation exercise: Participants will be given the opportunity to think like a CFO and develop practical experience to understand the impact that various sales and operational decisions will have on cash flow
