Remuneration and Governance Forum

It is now less than three weeks to Guerdon Associates and CGI Glass Lewis’ 15th Annual Remuneration and Governance Forum.

The event is invitation only. Invitations have been sent to company directors, institutional investors, regulators and company executives. If you are one of these, and have not received an invitation, please contact us at

We have already had a few questions around whether attendees can access the content after the event if calendars are too full. Unfortunately the answer is no. Because the event is being held under Chatham House rules we will not be recording. So make sure you register and keep space free in your diary. In the event that this is not possible, we will summarise discussion points for our next newsletter, although with care for no attribution.

To recap, the event is being held via webinar over two afternoons (23rd March and 30th March at 1:30pm AEDT).

We are pleased to confirm the following panellists and debaters:

–       Philip Chronican, Chairman, NAB

–       Christine O’Reilly, NED of BHP, Stockland and Medibank

–       Graeme Hunt, Chairman AGL and BIS Industries

–       Debra Hazelton, Chairman, AMP

–       Richard Goyder AO, Chairman of the AFL Commission, Woodside and Qantas

–       Debby Blakey, CEO HESTA

–       Talieh Williams, Head of Investment Stewardship, VFMC

The 23rd March webinar comprises two sessions with a 10-minute break in between:

1. CGI Glass Lewis’ VP APAC Research Philip Foo’s overview of 2020 proxy voting outcomes and trends– what was the driving force behind investor votes in the 2020 AGM season and how this might develop leading into the 2021 AGM season.

2. A panel considering ESG and other non-financial performance measures, with Philip Chronican, Graeme Hunt, Talieh Williams and Guerdon Associates’ Michael Robinson- How can companies best anticipate, prioritise, measure, and pay for ESG and other non-financial performance with external stakeholder support.

The 30th March webinar comprises two sessions with a 10-minute break in between:
