Shareholder meetings have traditionally always been hosted in a physical location, to allow shareholders to directly engage with the Board, and ultimately hold them to account. However, with the increasingly global diversity of the shareholder base, legislation is slowly changing around the world, to allow for the possibility of remote attendees at an AGM, thereby creating a virtual element. This mix of in-room attendees and virtual attendees, are what constitutes a hybrid meeting. Share registry Link Group held the first true hybrid AGM for an ASX 200 company incorporated in Australia in 2016. Many listed companies allow the public to watch a video broadcast of their AGM or hear audio. But that is a long way from true hybrid AGMs where shareholders directly vote on resolutions from their home, office or on a mobile device, or ask questions of the board via online platforms in real time.
In this seminar, below elements will be addressed by speakers:
· What is a hybrid meeting?
· Key considerations on hybrid meeting
· Case study
· Demo session
