IR Networking: IRO Breakfast

This series of in-person networking events is designed to allow IROs to share ideas and engage in peer group discussion in an informal environment. IROs at every stage of their career are welcome to attend but we would encourage IR leaders to join the Senior IRO specific breakfasts. 

The event will be attended by in-house-IR practitioners along with a member of the IR Society Board and Executive Team. 

Please note, as numbers are limited, priority will be given to those who have not previously attended. Chatham House rule will apply.
