BOARDS AND INVESTOR RELATIONS - WHAT AND WHY AND HOW
Over the last few years, many companies have increased their level of engagement between their Board and their Investor Relations team. Predictably, some of this has been directly tied to activist investors. Separate from activism, however, there are many drivers for enhanced messaging to and monitoring of a company's shareholder base. After all, effective governance requires a clear focus on investors - and the Street broadly - as key stakeholders in the province of the enterprise. In light of these trends, we are pleased to announce that our next program will be conducted in conjunction the Seattle chapter of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD).
Please join us for a lively and provocative panel discussion discussing the drivers behind and the fundamental shift in expectations about how boards and shareholders engage, and the emerging best practices between IR professionals and Boards. Attendees will gain actionable takeaways on how to improve the productivity and effectiveness of this important relationship.
Topics to be discussed include:
- Setting and managing expectations for the Board and for IR
- Best practices in communications, cadence, and collaboration between the Board and IR
- Goal setting and goal management for collaborative IR execution
- Best practices for establishing Board preparedness for IR outreach
- What are the notable changes in investor behavior over the past 18-24 months what are the state of the art tools and techniques to respond
- Ways to establish a coordinated IR philosophy and execution strategy across stakeholders
