What makes our format so unique?
In this highly interactive seminar, you will be able to participate in three panel discussions with other IROs from across Canada. Review the most significant issues you face as an IR professional in Canada, and learn how others are planning to overcome them. The seminar is participant-driven and highly focused.
Industry leaders will introduce each topic before participants break out into small roundtable groups to discuss the issues. Each session concludes with a room-wide discussion. Switching tables at the start of each session ensures maximum opportunity to interact and network with all participants.
