[VIRTUAL] IR Magazine Think Tank – West Coast
Exclusively for heads of IR

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

An interactive virtual event

Virtual experience

In light of the current situation surrounding Covid-19 and putting the safety of our attendees first, the West Coast Think Tank will now be a virtual event.

Using the latest cutting edge technology available, our virtual event platform closely replicates being there in person with the chance to take part in roundtable discussions, interact with speakers and have one-to-one networking in-between panel talks.

Going virtual connects you to even more IR heads across the West Coast so we hope you will join us for a day of in-depth collaboration with your peers from the comfort of your desk. As with all our think tanks, the event is exclusively for heads of IR at publicly listed companies and is free to attend.


About the think tank

The IR Magazine Think Tank – West Coast  is an invitation-only event exclusively for CFOs, Finance Directors and senior IR Officers. It is 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 set-up as the event consists of a series 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 IROs. All table 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?
  Industry experts, top-rated IROs and members of the investment community set the agenda on 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 from its own discussion and shares ideas with the group as a whole.

Holders of the NIRI IRC® credential can earn up to 4 professional development units (PDUs) per day. IRC-credentialed speakers may also earn PDUs. More information is available at
