Working Capital Forum 2022
14:00 - 17:30
Mayfarthstraße 4, 60314 Frankfurt/ Main
Unstable supply chains, rising raw material costs, high inflation rates and increasing interest rates characterise the current market environment. The challenges therefore require a strong focus on working capital management and transparency of the underlying processes. They form the thematic focus of our Working Capital Forum, to which we invite you together with our partner goetzpartners.
With the title „Cash for Transformation – Best Practices for Efficient Working Capital Management”, we will discuss with experts from different sectors and industries how working capital optimisations can be used to free up liquidity in companies.
Join the panel discussion and gain important insights for successful working capital management. We are looking forward to welcoming you on 17 November 2022 from 14:00.
