  • Description
    • SHAREHOLDER ENGAGEMENT - CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS

      The EU Shareholder Rights Directive will give shareholders a “say on pay” vote by 2020, meaning that listed companies’ pay policies and practices will come under increasing levels of shareholder scrutiny.  Those companies that fall short of investors’ governance standards can expect robust challenges.  Experience shows that it can lead to negative press coverage, political or societal pressure and reputational damage.  We are entering a new era of boardroom accountability – are you ready?

      In this one-day session, aimed at HR and business professionals, you’ll  hear about the differing agendas and governance policies of institutional investors and proxy voting agencies.   We’ll cover how to structure effective engagement strategies for dealing with shareholders, the media and other key stakeholders.  This session is part of the Reward Academy that blends theory and practice in a unique, interactive learning experience which is delivered by leading international experts:

      • Steffen Brenner, Professor at the Department of International Economics & Management – Copenhagen Business School
      • Birgitte Henrichsen, Partner at Jesper Klit Partners (Danish comms consultancy) & former VP: Head of Comms & Branding at Maersk
      • Peter Boreham,  European Practice Leader in Executive Compensation - Mercer London
      • Dana Minbaeva, Professor of Strategic & Global HR Management - Copenhagen Business School
