Attend the Euro Leaders Think Tank during the day.

The IR Magazine Euro Leaders Think Tank is an invitation-only event and enables senior IROs to discuss, debate and dissect topical issues affecting European IR.

The event’s unique format, where the audience drives the debate and engages its peers in discussion, is far removed from the traditional conference set-up and provides an unparalleled opportunity for IROs to interact with their peers across Europe. Neil Stewart, editor-at-large of IR magazine, will be the host and moderator.

The key feature of the think tank format is its interactive, informal nature, which allows attendees to have frank, open discussions in the knowledge they can talk freely because none of their comments will be quoted.

The event is divided into three sessions and the format is as follows:

1. Senior people – from IR, the financial community or the professions – set the agenda by sharing their thoughts on the session topic.

2. Small, roundtable groups of IROs discuss the issue face to face.

3. Each table gives feedback from its own discussion and shares ideas with the group as a whole.

It all starts with the research

Extensive independent research is at the foundation of our awards. Our research team will canvass more than 250 analysts and investors to uncover the standout IR professionals in Brazil. This research forms the basis for the awards and one of the best benchmarks for IR in the region.

But it's not all facts and figures

The IR Magazine Brazil Awards are a great opportunity to network with your peers, entertain your clients and, above all, have some fun while celebrating the IR community's successes.
