About this episode

The world has changed in the past three years and, with that, comes changes within the treasury profession that will shape the future of the industry.

Our guest on this episode is Richard Bostock, Head of Partnerships & Business Development at C-Innovation.

However, we’re ringing the changes. CEO, founder and host of The Treasury Career Corner, Mike Richards, is in the hot seat for part of the show, as he and Richard lead an open conversation about how the treasury recruitment landscape has changed over the past few years.

They discuss the pandemic and how it has changed treasury recruitment for good, making predictions and preparing for the future and the fast-moving world of Fintech.
