WACL NED Talk Lunch - The Modern Remcom
December 3 – 12:15 pm , The Foundling Museum
For our second NED Talk Lunch of this WACL year we will be focussing on the changing role of the Remuneration Committee. As Board members we are often asked to sit - and in due course Chair - one of these committees. Being marketeers, a Remuneration Committee role is often a more natural fit for us to participate in and to lead. Recently however a number of key changes have been made to how the Remuneration Committee should run, the scope of work of the committee needs to cover and the responsibilities of the Chairman changed, and so we though it would be useful for us to address and demystify some of the questions around this.
To guide us through our discussion we have engaged the help of our very own Remco Supremo - Stevie Spring - and expert guest speaker - Stephen Cahill from Deloitte. Both speakers biographies are enclosed below.
The event will be held between 12:15 and 2pm on Monday the 3rd of December and will be hosted by the lovely Larissa Joy at the gorgeous premises of the Foundling Museum located on 40 Brunswick Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 1AZ (Closest tube station: Russell Square)
This is WACL members-only event so please let me know on Francesca@Ecsery.com if you would us like to save you a spot.
