IR Society Annual Conference & Festival of IR 2021
For full programme details visit the conference microsite here.
More than a virtual event. More than just an online conference. The Festival of IR is a five-day programme of seminars, panel discussions, roundtables and networking with practical content for IR professionals at every level of their career.
Alongside our usual plenary sessions and keynotes, the Festival of IR will also include a range of sessions provided by the IR Society and its member companies to ensure the event really does provide something to engage the whole IR community.
The Festival of IR is now available on demand via the conference microsite.
The main theme of the 2021 event is IR and the purpose-driven business. The Covid-impacted environment has accelerated the need for companies to have a clear vision of their purpose and sometimes to revisit and potentially adjust it. Purpose revolves around ensuring sustainable future performance as well as corporate raison d’etre. Whilst the past year has been a testing one for all, companies now must learn from that experience and invest to drive growth, whilst building business resilience for an uncertain future environment. This year’s event will take a look at the challenges and opportunities companies face including the growing impact of ESG in all its dimensions. The plenary sessions will address all of these themes, from the 'big-picture' trends, real world examples of purpose in action and investor perspectives, through to hands on advice for IR practitioners as their roles continue to evolve.
With prices held at 2020 levels this additional content comes at no additional price. You can book your tickets here.
