The East coast session of NIRI’s excellent Fundamentals of Investor Relations is in Boston, Sept 22-25. These conferences are superb: tight, focused and the perfect mix of strategy and tactical advice. There is a January West coast session in Santa Monica CA.
Topics range from the broad “big picture” of IR down to “how-to” tactics on investor targeting, mitigating RegFD and the pros and cons of adopting new technologies – like the push of mobile and social media (whitepaper here).
By design, this event is IR 101 and always highlights the huge diversity of professional backgrounds brought to IR: PR, corp comm, finance, legal… and even (gasp!) marketing. There is never a “typical” IRO. This diversity is exactly why NIRI has been so important to so many in the industry (practitioner and vendor alike). Where else would we learn this stuff? This is college for IR.
Michael Del Grosso will be your PR Newswire – Vintage Filings host. In addition to his depth on shareholder communications, he’ll be able to speak with you about regulatory compliance and the very technical aspects of the actual trades.
Have a great day.
