We are diving deeper now into our Focus Topic of the year—Cash Visibility & Collaboration–  and we will ask participants to come ready to share 2 things:  1) If there were no barriers in place, what is the one area to which you would bring Cash Visibility? and 2) How would you do it?—again…with no barriers and right framework in place.
