In early December 2011, the 5th annual Cash Management University, organised by BNP Paribas, took place at Le Pré Catelan near Paris. Over 160 corporate delegates from across the globe came together to discuss how to use cash and treasury management to improve business performance. The emphasis was on peer-based learning, particularly in the workshop sessions. On the first day of the event, a workshop on supply chain finance (SCF) captured the imagination of many.
