About this talk

Tuesday, June 26, 2018 8.00 am PST / 11.00 am EST / 4.00 pm BST / 5.00 pm CET 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. Speakers include: •Moderator: Ben Ashwell, digital editor, IR Magazine •David Burdziuk, director of IR, Suncor Energy •Marc Butler, director of thought leadership, Intelligize •Sally Curley, founder and CEO, Curley Global IR (CGIR) Short, sharp and packed with expert insight, this webinar will get you up to speed on these critical issues in just 30 minutes.

ABOUT CORPORATE SECRETARY Corporate Secretary was founded in 2002 to help corporate secretaries and other governance professionals develop a deeper understanding of their roles and become more effective in them at a time when publicly listed companies’ regulatory compliance requirements began to escalate amid a series of high-profile corporate accounting scandals. Corporate Secretary is a digital and print platform, providing a forum where governance experts and service providers can share their experience, insights and best practice recommendations on a wide range of critical issues, from corruption, internal investigations, e-discovery and records management to succession planning, executive compensation, proxy actions and shareholder engagement. Corporate Secretary is independently owned and today continues to serve a vital role in highlighting the achievements and expertise of a group of people who work outside the spotlight and are often isolated as the only individuals in their organizations focusing on these complex matters.
