Duration: 60 minutes
Investor communications today bear very little resemblance to investor communications of just one month ago. In the new reality, where investor conferences have been postponed or held virtually, and annual meeting and capital markets days face the need to virtualize, it’s never been more important for IROs to understand, adopt and optimize the use of videoconferencing and video streaming.
With Covid-19 continuing to spread across the world, the number of videoconferences, video meetings and streaming of corporate events – such as earnings calls and annual meetings – being scheduled is unprecedented. Issuers will need to know how to maximize the effectiveness of these video interactions. The logistics, content and distribution of these meetings can all be optimized for a virtual format and, in this webinar, we’ll discuss how companies, banks and stock exchanges are striving to transition to online meetings as seamlessly and effectively as possible.
This webinar will cover:
- The trends in adoption of videoconferencing among issuers, investment banks and professional investors
- The role videoconferencing and streaming are playing in transforming investor communications programs
- Steps sell-side banks and exchanges are taking to keep investor information flowing
- Best practices for videoconferencing and streaming, and presenting your company’s best face on video
- How the adoption of videoconferencing and streaming could have a lasting impact on investor communications, long after Covid-19 is contained
Our four guest panelists have managed over 5,000 virtual meetings this quarter in one-on-one, group, webinar and livestream format with the largest and smallest companies around the world. Their knowledge of company, sell-side and buy-side interactions has evolved on a 24 hour timetable as the virus has moved east to west and office to work from home. They all respect the roles you play in communicating your story to stakeholders and look forward to helping inform your virtual decisions.
