The IR Magazine Think Tank – Europe is an invitation-only event exclusively for senior IROs. It is free to attend and our unique format enables participants to network extensively, discuss, debate and dissect topical issues affecting European IR.
What makes our format so unique?
It is far removed from the traditional conference set-up as the event consists of a series of panel sessions followed by roundtable discussions on select IR issues. These interactive sessions are broken up by short, snappy briefings from top-rated IROs. All discussions are confidential and none of the participants’ comments are attributed. This allows attendees to talk freely and have frank, open discussions.
How do our roundtable discussions work?
Senior people – industry experts, top-rated IROs and those from the financial community and the professions – set the agenda on a panel discussion by sharing their thoughts on session topics.
Small roundtable groups of IROs discuss these issues face to face.
Each table gives feedback from its own discussion and shares ideas with the group as a whole.
At the last think tank, short, concise panel briefings set the scene for in-depth round table discussions with senior IROs from across Europe. Attendees were able to network directly with their peer group and discussed Key themes and topics including:
