Corporate Secretary Webinar – How technology can help improve governance

Corporate secretaries and general counsel have for years looked to ensure best practices at the board level in areas such as recruiting, training, onboarding and assessing directors. Increasingly, though, companies are facing greater regulatory scrutiny of governance across the entire organization.

High-profile frauds and other problems that have arisen at a subsidiary level can have a major – or indeed fatal – impact on the parent company. Authorities around the world are looking for greater transparency at the entity level, not just at the holding company. Governance teams are having to provide this transparency and ensure best practices are being upheld across the organization, often without additional resources.

•How can you best assign risk categories to entities across the organization?
•How can technology be used for work such as board assessments, training and onboarding directors and keeping minutes at the subsidiary-board level?
•What role does technology have in ensuring transparency at subsidiaries to enable oversight from the parent company?
•Should this work be assigned to or shared with compliance, accounting and tax functions?

  • Webinar – Making entity management and M&A a success amid Covid-19 Nov 30 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Corporate Secretary & Diligent
    The Covid-19 pandemic initially led many boards to pause their pursuit of M&A activity amid economic uncertainty and the need to focus on keeping their own companies afloat. But that activity has been returning in recent months. CNN recently cited data from Refinitiv showing that 37 deals worth $5 billion or more, totaling $496 billion, were announced between July and September, making it the busiest third quarter since records began in the 1970s.

    As transactions have returned, so has the need for legal and compliance teams to complete their work on deals in unprecedented circumstances. Companies are also looking at organic growth. Our panel of experts will look at how professionals can pursue due diligence, entity management and other efforts successfully amid a pandemic.

    Topics for discussion will include:

    • What are the challenges and risks of conducting pre-deal due diligence while team members work remotely and face travel restrictions?
    • How can technology and best practices address these challenges?
    • During a potentially busy period for M&A but with limited resources, how can technology help with entity management?
    • How have laws and regulations changed globally as a result of the pandemic that teams need to be aware of while conducting M&A?

    Corporate Secretary & OnBoard
    The role of corporate secretary has been evolving in recent years as shareholder engagement has become a greater focus and boards have taken on oversight of new ESG-related issues.

    In addition to those already increasing burdens, the Covid-19 pandemic has required corporate secretaries and their governance colleagues to adapt to virtual AGMs and board meetings, a growing focus on human capital management and new thinking around crisis management, among other challenges.
    In this webinar, our panel of experts will provide insight into the changing role of the corporate secretary in handling both traditional and recent responsibilities as we look to a new year.

    Topics for discussion will include:
    • How do remote board meetings affect work such as scheduling, taking minutes and ensuring board members are provided with the right information?
    • What are the most effective uses and limits of technology in managing board assessments and evaluating board composition?
    • The US Department of Justice is pressing for companies’ compliance programs to be more data-driven. How does this affect corporate secretaries’ work with compliance and how they brief the board?

  • Webinar – Protecting against Covid-19-related legal and compliance risks Recorded: Oct 21 2020 52 mins
    Corporate Secretary, IR Magazine & Computershare
    The Covid-19 panic doesn’t just present a danger to people’s health. It also poses an array of potential legal and compliance risks for companies. These can arise from having employees working remotely and then returning to the workplace, interactions with customers, employees’ families and other stakeholders, the attentions of activist investors and navigating a generally chaotic business environment.

    In-house legal and compliance teams are having to make sure their companies avoid possible pitfalls, in many cases with limited or even reduced resources. Our panel of experts will explore the risks companies face and offer insight on how these can be addressed.

    Questions for discussion will include:
    •What legal liabilities and compliance risks do companies face as a result of employees working from home?
    •How can teams mitigate these dangers and ensure a culture of compliance exists?
    •What are the best uses of technology and other practices to assist legal and compliance teams while working remotely?
    •How can teams meet the US Department of Justice’s pressure for compliance programs to be more data-driven at a time of limited resources and remote working?

  • Webinar – Maintaining best-in-class IR during market uncertainty Recorded: Oct 14 2020 57 mins
    IR Magazine & Q4
    Best-in-class IR teams maintain consistent and clear communication, even in times of uncertainty. This year, uncertainty is the norm and that will likely continue to be the case – whether that’s due to the SEC’s proposed changes to 13F thresholds, questions about how the market will respond to the US elections, concerns of a second wave of Covid-19 or questions about employee security during the pandemic.

    In this webinar, we’ll outline what best-in-class investor relations looks like and learn how companies are continuing to communicate in spite of the uncertainty. We’ll also look at how the SEC’s proposed 13F rule change will affect IR’s ability to communicate effectively with investors and explore how the issuer community is responding to the proposed rule change.

    We will discuss:

    •Tips to get the best out of virtual shareholder engagement
    •How the SEC’s proposed change to 13F thresholds could affect IR teams and what you can do about it
    •How companies’ messaging around the longevity of Covid-19 is continuing to evolve.

    Corporate Secretary, IR Magazine & Computershare Georgeson
    The 2020 proxy season was unlike any previous year’s as governance teams carried out shareholder engagement via Zoom, helped their company switch to new formats for their AGM and prepared their board to respond to new questions at those virtual meetings. With many key issues still in flux, it is important to appraise how the season played put, see what lessons can be learned – and find out what to expect in the upcoming 2021 season.

    Our panel of experts will discuss important findings in the recently released 2020 Annual Corporate Governance Review from Georgeson and Proxy Insight. Speakers will also look ahead to issues likely to be areas of focus for corporate secretaries and their colleagues in the coming year.

    •What does the increasing number of E&S proposals approved this year teach us?
    •Which governance issues are of most concern to investors right now?
    •How was shareholder engagement affected by the pandemic and what lessons can governance teams learn from the experience?

  • Webinar – Redefining IR best practices during ongoing uncertainty Recorded: Aug 20 2020 61 mins
    IR Magazine & Q4
    Six months ago, the reality of the Covid-19 pandemic was beginning to dawn on us all, as the number of cases rose and countries began to enter lockdown. Since then, nearly half of IR teams have either had their budget cut or expect it to be cut this year, according to IR Magazine research. Some companies have watched their stock price plummet and then bounce back again, while others have not been so fortunate. The last few months have been challenging for IROs and, as the uncertainty continues, IR programs need to evolve and adapt to be successful in this environment.

    In this webinar we will look at how the nature of IR has changed and discuss best practices for how companies can navigate this new terrain – from investor targeting and use of management time for virtual investor meetings to budgeting and earnings prep.

    Join our panel of leading IR professionals and advisers who will discuss:

    •What has and hasn’t worked from an IR perspective over the last six months
    •Targeting best practices in a virtual environment
    •Using management time efficiently
    •Taking a fresh look at your IR website
    •Doing more with less: How to be efficient with a smaller budget

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Corporate secretaries and general counsel, like everyone else, have been coping with unprecedented upheaval in how they fulfill their duties as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Engaging with shareholders, preparing ESG reports and focusing on human-capital management issues have all presented new challenges.

    Boards of directors have also needed to find new ways to meet their responsibilities. As health and safety considerations have forced hundreds of companies to switch to virtual AGMs, so too have boards been gathering online. The demands of the pandemic and associated risk oversight, as well as the nature of virtual meetings, have led to more frequent but shorter and more targeted discussions.

    Our panel of experts will look at how boards have changed the way they work, what that means for governance teams and how board operations may look in the ‘new normal’.

    Proxy season 2020 has taken place amid unprecedented turmoil. In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic and accompanying economic and social challenges, companies have been battling to stay operational and afloat while boards and governance teams seek new ways to meet investors’ needs for information and engagement.

    Among other things, many companies have switched to holding virtual AGMs. Despite early predictions that the crisis would distract investors from ESG-related issues, the opposite has become apparent, with a series of significant shareholder votes at those AGMs. Meanwhile, companies and investors have been navigating a new regulatory roadmap for getting such proposals on the proxy ballot.

  • Webinar – Shareholder activism after Covid-19 Recorded: Jun 24 2020 53 mins
    Corporate Secretary, IR Magazine and Computershare
    Public company leaders and boards have in recent months been focused on managing Covid-19-related issues. But now is also the time to think about and prepare for potential proxy fights, hostile or unsolicited takeover efforts and activist demands so you won’t be caught off guard in the aftermath of the pandemic.

    Many activist investors seem to have scaled back their activities or refrained from targeting companies during the Covid-19 crisis. However, companies should expect to see an increase in activism and M&A activity in the coming months and activists may focus on how companies performed during the crisis and the impact that the pandemic has had on employees.

    Our panel of experts will discuss how general counsel, corporate secretaries and IROs can best prepare for the latest and coming developments in activism, answering questions such as:

    • What trends are expected in post-pandemic activism and M&A?
    • What might make a company vulnerable and how can the board avoid this?
    • How can the board respond to an activist with Covid-19-related concerns?
    • What are the challenges of and best practices for investor engagement post-pandemic?

    IR Magazine and Q4
    The volatility in March and April caused significant disruption to shareholder bases, with recent research from Bank of America Merrill Lynch suggesting that investors are holding on to record levels of cash. As a result, many issuers are now faced with the prospect of communicating and attracting new investors, which will require a fresh look at the company story.

    IR Magazine and Q4
    After surviving an earnings period like no other, IROs are now faced with targeting and engaging investors in this ‘new normal’. Until there’s a vaccine or alternative treatment for Covid-19, there will continue to be a heavy reliance on virtual meetings as a means of engaging investors. This is driving many companies to think about how they can use the technology to their advantage and make the most of the virtual format.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    - The mid-term outlook for the corporate access landscape
    - How companies are beginning to think about virtual investor targeting
    - How the new landscape can be turned into a positive for issuers looking to target previously hard-to-reach investors

  • Corporate Secretary webinar – How to manage entity compliance in uncertain times Recorded: May 27 2020 49 mins
    Corporate Secretary and Computershare
    Events such as the Covid-19 pandemic are a painful reminder of the need for companies operating on a global basis to ensure their entities can stay in compliance with local rules and laws, even in disruptive and uncertain conditions.

    Potential challenges include staff working remotely or being unavailable, necessary information being more difficult to locate or even national authorities introducing new requirements and standards. Companies and their entity compliance processes need to be able to continue operating as close to normal as possible while also coping with these additional pressures.

    Our panel of experts will discuss best practices for managing entity compliance in uncertain times, including:
    •How can you best ensure the company is getting all necessary entity data and information despite employees working from home and other disruptions?
    •How can corporate secretaries and general counsel design their entity compliance processes to be flexible and adaptive to unforeseen conditions?
    •What information should corporate secretaries and general counsel be sharing with the board to make sure it is fully briefed on the current long-term situation?
    •How can the entity compliance program cope with the budget pressure that accompanies uncertainty?

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.
