Benoît Ribaud of TotalEnergies on the excitement of getting back to in-person meetings

French company won best in sector at the IR Magazine Awards – Europe 2022

While most investor meetings remain virtual or hybrid, getting back to in-person interaction is ‘very exciting,’ according to Benoît Ribaud, ESG IR manager at TotalEnergies.

Ribaud was speaking at the IR Magazine Awards – Europe 2022, where the French company won best IR in the energy sector.

Virtual meetings are ‘very efficient, particularly because we have a strong investor base around the world,’ he said. ‘But [they] will never, ever replace a good face-to-face relationship.’

Ribaud noted that it was great to be back on a train or plane to ‘see the investors we missed over the last couple of years’.

TotalEnergies won in the awards-by-research part of the event, where winners are chosen by a survey of investors and analysts covering European companies.
