A successful meeting lies in the planning


 

When it comes to your meeting, you simply want everything to run smoothly - with no surprises. And the moment one AGM closes, you're never far off starting to plan the next. We're here to take away some of that pressure by helping you to plan and execute a successful meeting.

With the ever increasing emphasis on transparent voting processes at key meetings and ballots, you can control costs and risk while ensuring accountability with our full suite of meeting management services. All your meeting requirements will be taken care of by our experienced team of specialists who will ensure full regulatory compliance while maximising engagement with your investors and stakeholders.

 

Planning

Prepare well by planning with our specialist team before the meeting to ensure that the logistical and procedural requirements are met. You can use our specialist knowledge to draw up and script your Chairperson's Agenda, providing the vital information on which the success of the meeting depends. Information such as the required number of attendees for a quorum, the quorum required for passing ordinary and special resolutions, the number of votes required to pass a resolution and notes on other procedural requirements are written into the agenda. 

 

Registration

You can confidently leave the registration of shareholders and the validation of their proxies in our hands. We will process and scrutinise votes and provide your chairperson with the final outcome.

 

At the meeting

Your meeting will be professionally facilitated by our experienced staff using specialised technology and with a deep understanding of regulatory requirements, ensuring accountability and continuity in dealing with your key stakeholders. 

 

 

 Securing a contentious resolution


Sometimes, a resolution can face intense scrutiny from shareholders. It's essential that your proposals are clear and engaging. This means you can’t just rely on the information that accompanies the Notice of Meeting and proxy forms to tell the story. You must be proactive.

Georgeson, a Computershare company, specialises in Proxy Solicitation. Through Georgeson, together we can analyse the issues and attitudes of your shareholder base, and develop a strategy to give you the best chance of your gaining approval for your resolutions.

 

Maximise shareholder participation
