Mike has perfected the technique of asking the right questions in Treasury!

I've known Mike for most of my Treasury career and have seen him grow his business from a small UK office to the international operation it is today! Treasury Career corner provides you with a fantastic opportunity to talk about treasury, and share your experiences and challenges. Mike has perfected the technique of knowing the right questions to ask as well as making his guests feel comfortable and relaxed-qualities I recognized immediately when I first met him many moons ago!
