This program brings together activists, board directors and corporate management to discuss the state of play in activist engagement and what to expect in the upcoming shareholder season.

A full day of interviews, panel discussions, presentations by practice experts, strategists, advisors, activists and investors makes this one-day program an invaluable gathering, needed to effectively manage through the ever-evolving landscape of proxy fights and settlements.

Join us to share views and practices on the evolution and current state of shareholder activism in the US and abroad, with a focus on how engagements continue to shape efforts between directors, public company management and activist investors, all seeking positive outcomes.
