As program sponsors, Glass Lewis and Meetyl are delighted to support Skytop’s Shareholder Engagement & Communication forum at the Bloomsbury in London on 7 February.
As public companies in the UK and Europe increasingly engage with institutional shareholders, the stage is set for the emergence of new forms and methods of engagement. At the forum, executives, shareholders, and experts in the engagement space will convene on how to best manage institutional investor campaigns for constructive outcomes — with a focus on how U.S.-based activist campaigns affect the nature of engagements in the UK and Europe.
