We have managed over 100 AGMs. We believe our skill set makes us one of the most experienced teams available when it comes to AGMs.
We are adept in navigating through difficult situations such as significant drops in profitability and unpopular changes in policy. We also have experience managing disruptive AGMs with protestors, as well as dealing with the media attention that often follows these events. We are also happy to manage a straightforward AGM you just want to get off your ‘to do list’.
Our team has extensive experience across a variety of sectors in corporate reporting and the smooth and successful running of AGMs.
Having worked closely in-house with numerous finance and investor relations teams on the production and release of Annual Reports and Accounts, modern slavery statements, trading updates, preliminary results announcements and various other regulatory news announcements, the team has a strong understanding of the disclosure requirements needed to ensure that Corporate Reporting is fair, balanced, transparent and the perfect fit for your organisation.
Our wide-ranging AGM experience includes planning and holding both physical and hybrid meetings for multiple listed financial services firms, fast moving consumer goods companies (FMCG), LLPs and private companies and in our time, we have experienced working with strong minded chairs, handling protesters and disrupters, heightened investor interest following a reported takeover bid, technology failures as well as dealing with the media attention which can often follow these events.
Let our vastly experienced team support you in the considerable preparatory work required in the build up to the AGM right through to the holding of the meeting itself.
“Just WOW! Beyond Governance came in at short notice and provided us with support for our AGM at a challenging time for us. Beyond Governance over delivered in every way; they were a sounding board for me, and exceptionally safe pair of hands and a pleasure to work with. Nothing was too much trouble, they were my eyes and ears on the ground and identified ‘pinch points’ before they became a problem; something only experts of many years can do. Most of all their support alleviated pressure points in my role enabling me to focus on other pressing matters.
