Invitation to the Investor Relations Society Annual Conference IR 2020: Back to the Future!

Date: 23 Jun 2015

Venue: King’s Place, London, N1 9AG, UK

As you may already know, Edison works closely with the Investor Relations (IR) Society on numerous events. One of the highlights of the IR calendar, the IR Society annual conference, is a fantastic opportunity to network with peers, keep up-to-date with developments in the sectors and look ahead to the future of the profession.

The title of the conference is IR 2020: Back to the Future! and will be held on 23 June 2015 in London. With the Conference now in its 29th year, the IR Society realises that the IR landscape is fundamentally changing with the significant shifts in the underlying market, operating and regulatory environment that put a greater onus on the industry to clarify its roles and responsibilities. This year’s conference will examine what this means for IR and will discuss where IR is today, where it is heading and what you can do to ensure that you are fully prepared for the future.

The conference offers a comprehensive programme and a fantastic panel of speakers, including conference moderator, economist and broadcaster Evan Davis for the fifth year running. Other confirmed speakers include:

• Xavier Rolet, CEO, London Stock Exchange
• Marc Teasdale, Director of Market Oversight, FCA
• John Dawson, Director of IR, National Grid
• Sarah Elton-Farr, Head of IR, Shire
• Lexi Hockenhull, Head of Corporate Communications & IR, Xchanging
• Charles King, Director of Investor Relations, SSP Group
• Catherine Nash, Director of IR, Royal Mail
• Sue Scholes, Chair of the IR Society and former Director of Corporate Communications, AMEC
• David Walker, Head of IR & Corp Development, Hays

Based on its track record and reputation, the Conference is well attended by the UK and international IR community, with a strong representation from the FTSE 100. In addition to IR directors, the Conference is also attended by finance and communications directors as well as a wide range of IR advisers, and typically attracts more than 250 delegates.
