Talking Treasury Careers

In this weekly podcast, I interview treasury professionals from across the globe about their treasury careers. I talk to them about their roles, how they built their careers, where they are now and where do they see both themselves and the treasury profession developing.

Other areas we talk about include; Career highlights and lowlights. Where they got their big break? What do they see as key to their success? Where do their careers go from here? What do they see as the future of the Treasury profession?
