Finally, public companies face Regulation FD and other regulatory requirements that may require that they map out a careful communications approach. During this session, we will address the following:

    Trends and developments in capital markets communications;
    New modes of communication and engagement (e.g., social, digital);
    Non-GAAP financial measures;
    Navigating disclosure risks and requirements, including Regulation FD;

    Forward-looking statements, financial guidance and communicating with investment professionals, including analysts and rating agencies;
    Competitive benchmarking and key metrics;

    Top Global Banks Innovating to Keep Pace with Fintech Companies -
    Growth-driven Fintech Start-up Companies Disrupting the Financial Services Market

    New disruptive technologies are set to impact the global banking sector, forcing banks to redefine and transform themselves to survive in today's competitive market. The world's top banks, such as J.P. Morgan and Bank of America, have responded by forming digital transformation strategies to safeguard their existing market and venture into new ones. Fintech companies that began by targeting niche markets are now addressing the needs of a larger audience and directly competing against global banks. They have used technology to expedite the overall process and cut customer onboarding from a few days to a few minutes. While banks are open to working with Fintech companies, not all Fintech companies want to work with banks; they want to address customer pain points and deliver top-notch services and products at a fraction of the cost charged by banks and traditional financial services companies.

  • 3 Tips for Selling to the Senior level Execs
    3 Tips for Selling to the Senior level Execs Tim Robertson Feb 20 2018 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Most of us want to have better meetings with senior executives. Meetings that feel like conversations, not pitches. Meetings that build deeper relationships. Meetings that uncover more ways in which they can help their customers. Behind closed doors, when I ask what's holding people back, many will tell me things like, "I don't feel comfortable," "I have nothing to offer to them,"" or "I'm not at their level." Selling to Senior level executives can be difficult, and getting a first meeting can be a real challenge. But, in our experience, the most difficult part is not getting the first meeting. It's getting the second one. Or the third one. This webinar explores the ways that you can get to that second and third meeting
  • Death by Actuarial Reports
    Death by Actuarial Reports Kim Durniat - Partner and Head of Life Consulting and Amit Ladd - Actuary, Barnett Waddingham Feb 21 2018 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    There is no getting away from it - actuarial reports are a fact of life and are here to stay.

    Important and material information can easily get lost in long technical and “boring” reports. This makes it difficult for report users such as committees and boards to identify the key issues, and increases the risk of suboptimal decision-making.

    It is unlikely that any actuarial report will ever win the Man Booker prize, however, there are many things you can do to make the writing process easier and make the report less dreaded by its users.

    This webinar will cover how to improve the writing process of reports and make long, technical and “boring” reports a thing of the past.

  • Leverage your Intellectual Property in M&A
    Leverage your Intellectual Property in M&A Christopher Cauvy from Intersection M&A and Jessie Parker @ PatSnap Mar 7 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Intellectual Property is fast becoming one of the largest items on a company balance sheet. Most organisations are aware of their patent and other IP assets but how can a merger or acquisition change that?

    IP data can tell us much more than just the value of patents - by looking at the IP portfolios of an organisation you can get an idea of whether you are strengthening or weakening your market position and which assets will be the most valuable after the M&A.

    In this webinar, we will be showing you some hypothetical M&A's and mapping out how exactly this would impact company value, market share and Freedom to Operate just by looking at their patent portfolios, as well as giving you tips on managing your portfolios so that you can make them work harder for your organisation.
