IR: Future-proofing Business

This year’s conference theme builds on strategic IR and the importance of driving long-term business thinking. Let’s think of the long-term rather than be caught up with the noise of the short-term, particularly any external factors that are out of our hands. How can best practice IR influence a company’s thinking, culture, values and behaviour by effectively bringing the outside view in?

At the 2017 IR Society Annual Conference we saw almost 400 IR professionals gather to meet with peers, compare notes and hear from some wonderful speakers and panellists.
