Im Mittelpunkt des VR-Forum 2024 steht das Thema «Führung des Unternehmens». Der Fokus liegt
dabei auf den zwei Bereichen Effizienz und Effektivität bei der Arbeit des Verwaltungsrates und der
Ausgestaltung seiner Beziehungen zur Geschäftsleitung. Eine zeitgemässe Governance, welche die
Zusammenarbeit im und mit dem Verwaltungsrat optimiert, gewährleistet qualitativ bessere
Entscheidungen und ist ein massgeblicher Faktor zur Berechnung des Unternehmenswertes. Die
zentralen Fragestellungen zu Rollen, Organisation und Zusammenarbeit an der Unternehmensspitze
werden am Forum aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln beleuchtet.

Am Forum diskutieren Verwaltungsräte, Geschäftsleitungsmitglieder, Unternehmensjuristen und
Rechtsanwälte in einem überschaubaren Kreis von Teilnehmenden über Trends und aktuelle
Herausforderungen im Umfeld der Verwaltungsratstätigkeit.

SWIPRA Services freut sich, Teil der Konferenz zu sein.

26.08.2020 Webinar AGM Season 2020: Take Aways and Learnings for 2021|August 26, 2020 SWIPRA Event Read More

Webinar together with MorrowSodali and IR Club Switzerland

The AGM season 2020 will be remembered as a special one. It will not only be the season with the shortest AGM meetings in history, but also the starting point to a period where a lot of existing structures will have to be rethought. The Corona crisis is not only putting a lot of strain on businesses’ operations, but is also forcing Boards of Directors to reconsider strategy and governance frameworks. A particular focus in this regard concerns an old economic principle: the integration of corporate social responsibility, incentive and capital allocation frameworks with strategy to create long-term sustainable businesses.

In this joint webinar SWIPRA Services and Morrow Sodali will provide a review of the AGM Season 2020 in Switzerland and abroad and discuss key developments and themes in investor and proxy advisor behavior expected for 2021. IR club members from Nestlé and Leonteq will share their experiences and views on these topics and lead into a broad discussion to exchange views amongst peers.

18.09.2019 Auditor - Investor Roundtable Non-Financial Information Audit – Quo Vadis? | September 18, 2019 SWIPRA Event Read More

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is becoming more and more important in corporate management, a single focus on financial indicators in strategic corporate management is increasingly regarded as insufficient.

Institutional investors in particular are stressing the importance of socially responsible entrepreneurship and CSR reporting. This creates new expectations on the tasks of auditors and the desire for increased assurance in the field of non-financial corporate information. But what exactly should be audited from the investors' point of view? And which audits are already being carried out today - maybe implicitly?

This is an event for auditors and financial market participants. Roundtable attendees are invited to actively contribute to the discussion.
