Our IACT2020 virtual treasury summit has been heralded a huge success, albeit our first annual conference delivered virtually.
With 217 signed up delegates on November 18th last, we had an incredible almost 60% representing corporates.
We were especially delighted to see a total of 198 delegates dialled in to join us on the day.
Many of these delegates engaged in the opportunities to ask questions, add comments and a special thanks to all our delegates who engaged in our IACT survey questions providing us with invaluable feedback information for next year’s planning, programme of events, topics etc.
One to one networking can be a challenge for many during normal times but it can be especially challenging, if not impossible, during a virtual event. However, on this occasion we were particularly happy to see successful engagement with our online networking opportunities.
8 delegates achieved the maximum of 200 points on the leaderboard with Cian Butler/ESB in first position winning the coveted €150 wines and chocolates hamper. Cian nominated the Jack & Jill Foundation as the deserving charity and we have already issued them a cheque for €1,000 on behalf of our IACT2020 delegates.
We especially thank J.P. Morgan’s Sara Castelhano, HSBC’s James Pomeroy and Barclays’ John Shinkins for their invaluable contribution to our plenary sessions this year.
We acknowledge the skilful work of our event chair for this year’s event, Marc Coleman at Octavian (see photo below) who kept us on our toes and on track throughout!! Final thanks goes to all contributors in the discussion panel ably chaired by Hewlett Packard’s Fiona Hughes and all our speakers in the three breakout discussion rooms.
Thank you to all of you who came on our virtual journey with us this year; without you, our webinars and our virtual summit wouldn’t have been possible.
