In 2007 we had the privilege of holding Australia’s first remuneration forum for institutional investors, board directors, regulators and executives, in conjunction with CGI Glass Lewis and Allens Arthur Robinson. Outcomes from the forum were in many ways surprising and pleasing (see our report HERE). Feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
Hence we will be sponsoring another annual forum with CGI Glass Lewis on the morning of 12 February 2008. It will be held at Allens Arthur Robinson offices at Level 27, 530 Collins St Melbourne. More details will be forwarded by email to those interested shortly. Issues will focus on the content, feedback and voting outcomes of this year’s remuneration reports, non-executive director pay, as well as consideration of alternative executive remuneration frameworks. A preliminary program (i.e. yet to be finalised) is available HERE.
As with the last forum, numbers will be strictly limited to ensure a good mix of the decision makers from each of the main stakeholders are able to attend and participate in what we expect will be a lively discussion. A fee will be charged to cover the cost of holding and organising the forum and the lunch following.
Media organisations will be excluded from the event, and Chatham House rules will apply to ensure free and open dialogue. As at the last forum, there will be space available for institutional investors and board directors to discuss company specific issues in confidence during breaks and after the forum’s conclusion.
The forum is essential to understand the processes that are involved in the formulation, disclosure and voting on executive and board remuneration, and how these are evolving.
Because numbers are limited, we cannot guarantee a place for all those wishing to attend. To get in early and so reserve a place for your attendance, or to find out more, contact us HERE, or the Guerdon Associates director nominated below.
