Two-Part Masterclass on Compelling Investor Presentations and Investor Days: A new NIRI workshop – 90 minutes on two consecutive days – with hands-on, guided activities and breakout discussions with peers to maximize learning. Capacity is limited, so reserve your seat early.

September 23-24, 12:00-1:30pm Eastern Time both days



Creating Compelling Investor Presentations

Investor audiences, at the best of times, have a limited attention span for company presentations. In this new world of more virtual meetings, there is a 2X greater need to be clear, concise and on message. To effectively engage and hold your audience’s attention, virtual investor meetings require a different mindset and application of new best practices.

This workshop brings a powerful organizing concept to investor presentations - the pyramid principle. By applying the pyramid principle and the six proven presentation best practices, participants will gain actionable insights to achieve success in two key outreach components of an IR program:
  • Creating compelling and engaging investor presentations
  • Executing a successful virtual investor day

Learning Outline

  • On day 1, participants will learn and apply the pyramid principle and six best practices for creating a compelling investor story. This includes numerous examples and discussions. Participants will be provided with overnight “homework” - learning exercises that include a presentation submitted by a brave participant to be critiqued.
  • On day 2,
    • Participants will move to breakout rooms. In this collaborative session each team will share views on the presentation submitted – applying the pyramid principle and six best practices.
    • Participants will also learn what makes a successful investor day and once again share views with peers in breakout rooms.

Who Should Attend  

This workshop is designed for a wide range of IR professtionals but will be particularly beneficial to:
  • Companies with low valuations partly due to misunderstood or complex stories.
  • Companies in industries that tend to have complex stories – technology, healthcare, biotech and multi-segment businesses.
  • Companies with outreach programs strongly focused on attracting new investors.
  • IROs and CFOs wanting to raise the level of their investor presentations to best in class and/or looking for fresh ideas.
