Elire recently attended TEXPO 2017 – a Financial Management conference sponsored by the Alliance of Texas Treasury Associations (ATTA). The ATTA joins five regional Treasury Associations – Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Fort Worth, and is focused on utilizing communication and education to improve financial management.
Team members kicked off the two day conference with a welcome party by the pool. This networking event set the tone for the week, encouraging great conversation, sharing of best practices, and enjoying the Austin sun!
The Breakfast keynote was inspirational speaker and author, James P. Owen. James spoke about living by “Cowboy Ethics” and standing tall, including his top ten principles.
Elire’s experts and sales team attended various educational sessions focused around industry hot topics, including the current TMS Vendor Landscape, generational preferences towards payment options, and the ease of utilizing cash forecasting tools. Other sessions included tips and tricks for selecting and implementing a TMS, as well as leveraging workplace environments and employees to accelerate success. The team found the sessions informative and encompassing of a wide range of Treasury topics and issues.
One of the best parts of conferences is chatting with our corporate partners and clients. Below is Elire Partner, Mike Graham, and Southwest Region Business Development Manager, Sarah Bougie, by the SWIFT booth.
