NIRI Kansas City - The New Digital Landscape – September 9, 2014
This topical session looks at a rapidly changing landscape and the emerging trends in multi-channel media and what this means for investor relations professionals.
Featured speaker: Sri Sritharan, Head of U.S. Client Services & Operations, Investis Inc.
Will the SEC now permitting the use of social media by listed companies effectively act as a catalyst for other markets? Research shows that use of digital media at companies is on the rise, so how should IROs make the best use of this additional source of information while, at the same time, not fall foul of its challenges and lose control of the message? How does the buy-side factor this into an investment proposition and how much is simply more noise? Our speaker will consider digital media from a number of perspectives and aim to bring to life a testing issue for IR.
What you will learn:
• What’s changed and why social matters to your investor relations strategy
• Digital best practices and trends: case studies
• What you can do to improve your own digital corporate communications and presence
RSVP: Via email by September 4 to email@example.com

NIRI Boston - IROs: Earn Your Seat at the Table – September 15, 2014
Investor relations professionals are far more effective at their job when the senior management team and the board of directors include them on the strategic decision making process. This allows them to fully understand what is going on at the company and why. With this knowledge, an IRO can better communicate strategic messages to the investment community and it also improves their reputation and relationships with analysts. But how do you earn that trust?
At this session, attendees will hear from senior IROs that have earned management and the board’s respect and confidence by demonstrating a deep knowledge of the company’s business and industry and by providing valuable insight on potential reactions from The Street to material announcements. Key takeaways will include types of reports and other forms of communication that these IROs deliver to management and their boards of directors.
