AGM Season Report 2022

We will host our AGM Season Report 2022 at our offices on Barrow Street from 5.45pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday 30 November.

This year, in addition to presenting our report, we are pleased to include a panel discussion with two leading speakers on corporate governance. Both have featured prominently in the business pages in the past year.

Our panellists will review the 2022 AGM season and discuss topical and contentious matters including director independence, director remuneration, ESG reporting, and the future of the UK Corporate Governance Code.
