AGM update from David Walker, Chair of the IR Society

In late June as usual we held our AGM, albeit in a very different format given the constraints placed on physical meetings. I’m sure many of you have had similar experiences with your own company AGMs and results – it’ll be really interesting to see how the format of these events changes post-COVID. Will we go back to physical meetings again or will virtual gatherings become common place? Certainly from our perspective at British Land, having delivered our full year results in mid-May and conducted an investor roadshow over the last few weeks, we’ve missed the in-person interaction. Body language, reading the room, understanding different people’s response to your messages, knowing when to stop talking; however you look at it, this is a fundamental part of what we all do – let’s hope we’re back to more normality as soon as possible.
