AGM Season Review: Trends, Key Topics & How Boards Should Prepare

Presented by

Edna Frimpong, Director of Research at the Diligent Institute, Stuart Morgan, Head of Investor Relations at Capita PLC

About this talk

AGMs are an essential part of the business calendar, but they can be the cause of tension between investors and boards as well as headlines in the news. They are a moment for investors to air their views and for boards to test their policies. The 2022 season has been no different. And while overall dissent has dropped, it has intensified over sustainability issues and remained high on executive pay. Boardroom diversity simmers at the edge of every AGM with the advent of new rules. In a free webinar from Diligent and Board Agenda our expert panel will identify the key themes of the 2022 AGM season, look ahead to what boards can expect from next year and identify how they can prepare. Panel guests will provide insight on: - The key priorities for voting investors during 2022 - Evolving investor concerns about sustainability and climate - Why remuneration is a key focus of investor dissent - Board diversity and investor expectations - Changing AGM formats - What to expect and how to prepare for 2023
