TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2011) -



Tuesday September 27, 2011

Noon to 1:30 pm (Luncheon)

Enjoy different food stations and mix and mingle as you discuss three hot IR topics in a round table format.

Social Media and IR:

Facebook? Twitter? Social media is a powerful communication tool effectively used by only a small percentage of Canadian companies. Join Lori Bieda as she shares insights from the recent SAS/Leger survey on how Canadian companies are using social media. Then hear from one of the few companies utilizing social media in IR as Jane Curtis shares her company's experience and key learnings.

Managing the Media:

Off the record and behind the scenes, dos and don'ts for IROs. Chaya Cooperberg has experience as both an IR and communications practitioner as well as a journalist (working at publications such as Canadian Business Magazine and GlobeInvestor). Join Chaya as she provides insights from both sides of this communication dynamic.

Delivering Value to Your Board:

What does your board want from their IR team, and how can you deliver? Open Text has a comprehensive communication strategy for their board. Join Greg Secord as he shares their best practices.
