    Event Synopsis:
    Shareholder activism’s main goal is to drive change and maximize a company’s potential as its shareholders deem fit. Shareholders levy their rights to push companies for changes in terms of corporate governance and growth in their market impact and value, company management is, therefore, left to cope with the demands of their dissatisfied investors.

    As shareholder activism trends and campaigns are on a steady rise, navigating through the evolving strategies of activists is of paramount concern. Companies and its top management must become adept in developing strategies to address the concerns of the board and be one step ahead of such campaigns, thus, the need to keep abreast of the recent trends and developments in this rapidly evolving field.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help companies and its top management understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of Shareholder Activism and how to navigate through it. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective strategies in dealing with Shareholder Activism.

    Key topics include:
    • Shareholder Activism: Overview
    • Risks and Pitfalls
    • Best Practices and Strategies
    • Recent Trends and Developments
    • 2019 Outlook
