Time: 9.30 am-3.40 pm
IR Magazine Think Tanks are free, invitation-only events that enable senior IROs to discuss, debate and dissect topical issues affecting IR.
The key feature of the think tank format is its informal nature, which allows attendees to have frank, open discussions in the knowledge they can talk freely because none of their comments will be attributed.
The event is divided into sessions and the format is as follows:
- Senior people – from IR, the financial community or the professions – set the agenda by sharing their thoughts on the session topic.
- Q&A time allows IRO participants to pose questions to the speakers.
- Small, roundtable groups of IROs discuss the issue face to face. Each table gives feedback from its own discussion and shares ideas with the group as a whole.
The Winter Think Tank 2012 included panels on buy-side trends and IR best practices, as well as a crisis simulation. Click here for coverage of the event.
