Nervous about the prospect of holding an online or hybrid AGM? Recent changes to Government guidelines mean there is an opportunity to develop a unique model that suits both your organisation and your shareholder community.
There are three main presenting options for your executive speakers when it comes to virtual and hybrid AGMs: presenting from a studio, a physical presentation from an external venue or office that is live-streamed, and presenting remotely over a broadband connection or by phone.
Give your executives the choice to present from a location of their choice. Our managed service includes online presenter briefing sessions and technical checks to ensure all speakers are setup for success.
Phone audio via a teleconferencing platform provides a very stable audio feed and can be a great back-up.
The interactive elements of your hybrid or virtual AGM may need special consideration in order to find the right balance between enabling the meeting to run smoothly and providing investors and members with a reasonable opportunity to participate.
Here are the options available to you when it comes to interaction and engagement.
Activate Private Q&A or Public Chat to engage online shareholders. A copy of your transcript can be downloaded once your event has concluded.
Launch live polls within your online AGM as a virtual ‘show of hands’. All poll results can be shared online and are made accessible within 24 hours.
Our Proxy Voting solution is completely anonymous and uses the highest security standards and vote verification protocol.
