Treasury Management Symposium

Conference/Seminar/School Michele Dunn

This in-person program will provide participants with Treasury Management product and service perspectives to aid in business retention, expansion & acquisition. 

Key Discussion Points & Who Should Attend

The Payments/Treasury Management realm of products has evolved and now requires more technical expertise and knowledge than ever. The rapidly changing product set encompasses a wide range of electronic and card-based options. The bank’s business calling teams need to be aware of the current trends and competitors who are trying to lure their clients. The bank’s business leaders who are responsible for payment, product and sales strategies need to continue to broaden their knowledge of TM product options and delivery models to remain relevant. Bank teams should know how to work efficiently to gather information to produce compelling proposals to attract and retain relationships.

Who Should Attend?

The sessions are geared towards all bank business development and Treasury Management sales staff including branch managers, commercial lenders, business development officers and others who are responsible for new business client growth and relationship expansion.

Treasury Management and business leaders who are responsible for product and/or sales strategy are encouraged to attend. Treasury Management Sales and Team Leaders will benefit from these sessions.  

Prerequisite: A working knowledge of Treasury Management products is required.
