Wednesday, November 15, 2017
8.00 am PST / 11.00 am EST / 4.00 pm GMT / 5.00 pm CET
Duration: 30 minutes

Building a trusted rapport with their CEO and CFO is crucial for IROs, who act as advisers on company messaging and capital markets, and whose credibility with investors and analysts is based on being in the loop.

Depending on their company’s culture and their C-suite’s level of buy-in for IR, some IROs may need to make a case for senior management to dedicate time to roadshows, investor conferences or interaction during site visits. They should also strive to make productive use of a CEO’s or CFO’s time spent on IR.

From a careers perspective, IR is increasingly considered a must-have experience for finance professionals wanting to step up to the CFO role.

A group of experts will discuss fundamental issues on the IR/C-suite relationship, including:

•Tips for IROs on building a stronger relationship founded on trust
•Best practices for an effective collaboration between IR and the CEO/CFO
•How to get senior management on board for investor-facing activities
•How the C-suite assesses the effectiveness of an IR program
•What skills CEOs/CFOs are looking for when hiring an IRO

Speakers include:

• Matthew Bloxham, senior analyst, Bloomberg Intelligence
• Candice de Monts-Petit, deputy editor, IR Magazine
• Gerbrand Nijman, group CFO, Global Telecom Holding

  • IR Magazine Webinar - Keep control of the company narrative in social media age Sep 25 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    IR Magazine and sponsored by Bloomberg
    This webinar will explore how it is vitally important to keep a consistent and unified narrative across and throughout the organization when a crisis hits on social media.

    Explore the examples of crisis situations:
    The recent abusive Elon Musk twitter postings and the Papa John’s racist storm:
    What went wrong for these to happen?
    How could these have been dealt with more effectively from an IRO perspective?
    Is there a limit to how the IRO can control the company narrative once these comments have been made?

    Team working and strategy:
    Why IROs should monitor social media posts about their companies.
    How can this be done effectively?
    How can the IRO put social media at the heart of the overall IRO strategy?

    A practical guide to different approaches to social media posting:
    The instant reply: ensuring a comment is addressed immediately, in real time.
    The promotion of the company via positive PR and good news
    The CEO commenting on the business: a good use of senior management being involved and visible
    The IRO addressing a specific audience: keeping on message and ensuring a select audience knows the established company message
    Explore in turn, the benefits of each approach

    The IRO dilemma: social media scope and limits
    What is suitable for the IRO to convey on social media? Even in a crisis.

  • Webinar - ESG matters: materiality and a growing list of questions Recorded: Jun 26 2018 57 mins
    Presented by IR Magazine & Corporate Secretary and sponsored by Intelligize

    Duration: 30 minutes

    The debate around ESG is one of the most compelling in the IR world at the moment: are governance teams at large institutional investors dictating a narrative that is unrepresentative of the broader investment community or are investors genuinely broadening their assessment of what they deem to be material for their investment process?

    What is clear is that ESG is much more of a talking point on earnings calls and in other forums between investors and issuers, according to data from Intelligize. In this webinar we will explore how IR teams and corporate secretaries are working together to ensure that their company is well prepared for investor questions on ESG – whether they come from portfolio managers or governance teams.

    •Moderator: Ben Ashwell, digital editor, IR Magazine
    •David Burdziuk, director of IR, Suncor Energy

    The last year has seen considerable attention focused on the growing demands from institutional investors for companies to make new ESG-based disclosures. Amid the focus on environmental and governance issues, there has been less discussion of social issues. But more investors are looking for disclosure in this area, and one of the key challenges for companies and their IR teams is deciding on and delivering the right data.

    In this webinar, a panel of industry specialists will examine what investors want to know, and how IR practitioners can ensure their company is telling the right story in the most effective way.

    Speakers will address topics and questions such as:

    • How well are companies delivering the information investors seek – and what can they do to improve their performance?
    • Faced with a range of indices and requests for different types of data, how can IR teams decide where to focus their efforts?
    • How can you turn the qualitative nature of many social issues into numbers?
    • How can IR teams best leverage their ‘E’ and ‘G’ efforts in the ‘S’ space?

    The panel includes:

    • John Cummings, senior vice president of investor relations, Salesforce
    • Moderator: Ben Maiden, editor, IR Magazine

    Many US companies are grappling with FASB’s changes to reporting revenue. These changes have a knock-on effect for the analysts who cover you as internal models need to be updated and revenue needs to be recalculated.

    IR Magazine, Wix and Q4
    Let’s get to the bottom of it…Is stock surveillance worth it?

    With markets growing in complexity, stock surveillance providers claim to help IROs even the playing field, giving them timely intelligence on buying and selling, market sentiment and potential dangers like activist activity in their stock. But not all IR professionals are convinced by the value of surveillance services. Some view it as an expensive and unnecessary safety blanket that provides analysts’ best guesses but little in the way of factual information. Join IR Magazine, Wix.com and Q4 on this webinar where will we dive in and battle it out.

    Join this webinar to hear:

    - The arguments for and against the use of stock surveillance services

    - How ETFs may affect short-term volatility in your stock price and the composition of your shareholder base in the long term
