IR Webinar: AGMs 2021 - What to Expect

As the AGM season approaches we will hear both the corporate and investor perspective about priorities for 2021 and things companies should be on the lookout for as they prepare for their AGM.

After a tumultuous 12 months, our panel will discuss the key issues around the impact of Covid on AGMs, the acceleration of ESG matters, voting and remuneration issues, as well as key learnings from 2020 and what they think will be on the AGM agenda and in focus for 2021.
