San Francisco, August 30th 2018: Former CEO of Monitise, Executive Vice President at Visa, Inc. and global executive, Elizabeth Buse, has been announced as the official keynote speaker for Taulia’s Working Capital Summit in Chicago on October 18.

Elizabeth has made a career out of scaling products and businesses sustainably. During her 16 years at Visa, she had product and general management responsibilities for many of the payment innovations that are taken for granted today. Under her leadership, Visa became an everyday product across credit, debit, face-to-face and online. She led the company’s expansion into the ‘small-ticket transaction’ and had executive responsibility for large-ticket commercial payments.

Her track record of scaling innovations to be sustainable make her the ideal candidate to speak in Chicago. Elizabeth will deliver her view on innovation across the trade landscape, and what she thinks are the greatest challenges and opportunities.

Elizabeth says: “Organizations need to continue to innovate to stay competitive. Innovation in corporate payments and working capital is an opportunity for companies large and small. I look forward to speaking at the Working Capital Summit with like-minded people and see how they have changed and grown their businesses for the better.”

The Working Capital Summit will be the only event in North America with a pure focus on working capital optimization. And with a host of senior leaders attending from Fortune 500 businesses, the event will provide financial thought-leaders with an executive audience from the world’s largest businesses.

Cedric Bru, CEO of Taulia says: “Elizabeth brought many new products to the world driving convenience to consumers, growth to businesses, and platforms for others to innovate. I am excited to hear her view on how to bring innovation to business commerce.”
