With 2020 fast approaching, now is a critical time to identify and assess key trends and developments that corporate secretaries, investor relations professionals and their colleagues have tackled in 2019 so you can prepare for the coming year.

Topics for the webinar include:
• Shareholder proposals on ESG issues – what were the trending topics in 2019, how did investors vote and what issues will be prominent in the upcoming proxy season?
• Director elections – how successful have directors been in maintaining support and what does the push for diversity mean for 2020?
• Say-on-pay proposals – how have investors’ views on executive compensation practices evolved?
