Presented by

Corporate Secretary & Nasdaq

About this talk

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 8.00 am PDT / 11.00 am EDT / 4.00 pm BST / 5.00 pm CET 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’.

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.
