Bank of America offices, London
The IR Magazine Think Tank – Europe took place on Thursday, June 22, in London and as an invitation-only event exclusively for senior IR officers. Our think tanks are free to attend and our unique format enables participants to network extensively, discuss, debate and dissect topical issues affecting today’s IROs.
What makes our format so unique?
Our think tanks are far removed from the traditional conference setup as the event consists of panel sessions followed by roundtable discussions on select IR issues. These interactive sessions are an opportunity to share experiences with and learn from other top-rated investor relations professionals. All table discussions are confidential, and none of the participants’ comments is attributed, allowing attendees to talk freely and have frank, open discussions.
How do our roundtable discussions work?
Industry experts, top-rated IROs and members of the investment community set the agenda for a panel discussion by sharing their thoughts on session topics.
Small round tables of IROs discuss these issues face to face.
Each table gives feedback and shares ideas with the group as a whole.
Investors, analysts and award-winning issuers will share best practices. Roundtable discussions will follow panel discussions. Timings are subject to change.
Registration, breakfast and morning networking
Welcome to the think tank

IR in a 'poly-crisis': Respond to converging macro challenges
Supply chain disruptions, volatile markets and geopolitical tensions each constitute a significant challenge for IR. Together, they are what some have dubbed a ‘poly-crisis’: a complex mix of challenges greater than the sum of its parts. But a poly-crisis is also a ‘poly-opportunity’.
This panel will discuss how IR teams can communicate resilience in uncharted territory and drive value in rapidly changing markets.
• Clarify and respond to increasing market uncertainty
• Navigate evolving supply chain and geopolitical tensions
• Reasons to be optimistic: Key drivers of growth on the road to recovery
Moderator: Steven Wade, head of event content, IR Magazine

Fire-side chat: ESG oversight and activism prevention
Companies are increasingly being held to account by their shareholders. A growth in pass-through voting and the growing influence of proxy advisory firms mean that boards, management, and IR teams must deepen their relationship with investor stewardship teams.
ESG issues increasingly feature in European activist campaigns, often alongside themes such as governance matters, potential M&A transactions and other efforts to increase shareholder returns. This session will explore the steps IR teams can take to enhance ESG oversight, prepare for the next AGM and prevent ESG-related activism.
• Understand the trends as it relates to investor stewardship and ESG activism
• Learn how to apply ESG best practices and optimize governance
• Hear how IR should communicate to the board about ESG and climate targets
Moderator: Hemma Visavadia, reporter, IR Magazine
Jana Jevcakova, managing director and head of ESG International, Morrow Sodali
New ESG priorities: Regulations, reporting and reality
Interest in ESG is at an all-time high. This year the CSRD entered into force, the ISSB is releasing the first of its standards, and the TNFD is launching its final framework. However, many on the buy side still feel there is a disconnect between targets and action and between good storytelling and robust data. Here we discuss how to:
• Prepare for new acronyms: How are standards evolving and aligning?
• Go from targets to action: Investor expectations around transition plans
• Communicate ESG information authentically in an age of increasing ESG fatigue

Leveraging new technology to enhance your IR program
There is debate over the impact tools like ChatGPT will have on investor relations. Still, there is no doubt that automation and AI are transforming multiple industries and presenting entirely new risks and opportunities for IROs.
In this panel, we will discuss the key trends in automation and AI that IROs should be watching out for and share advice on how to effectively use (and not use) these technologies to enhance your IR program.
• An overview of the biggest technological trends impacting IROs today
• Debate the risks, opportunities and limitations of automation and AI in IR
• Case studies: Effective application of automation and AI to enhance productivity

The evolution of IR talent: Setting yourself and your team up for success
The role and perception of IR have evolved significantly over the last few years, with many IROs becoming increasingly involved in other sides of the business and taking on more responsibilities.
Here we explore what the trend towards more diverse and adaptable talent means for the career prospects of IROs, the development of teams and the future of the profession as a whole.
• Understand and respond to changing management expectations of IROs
• Share career development strategies to future-proof your IR team
