The IR Society was delighted to welcome back Evan Davis, a Fellow of the IR Society, as conference host for the eighth year running.

Throughout the day, the Annual Conference focused on how Investor Relations can help future-proof businesses and considered how best practice IR can influence a company’s strategic thinking. Supported by views from the C-suite, the Boardroom and IROs, as well as the buy- and sell-sides, the conference addressed the important trends in Investor Relations including the growth of ESG and market disruption due to the impact of changes in regulation, market structure and technology.
