The annual general meeting of shareholders (AGM) is a mandatory and ‘traditional’ moment to come into contact with shareholders. Yet there is nothing traditional about the way an AGM can be organised. It is thus possible to broadcast the AGM live (and afterwards) via a video webcast. Shareholders can follow the broadcast live, worldwide. Non-shareholders can also get a good picture of your organisation, management and government.
Broader reach & transparency
The main reasons for choosing a live video webcast are to increase the reach on the one hand (a webcast is a very accessible way to participate) and on the other hand to be maximally transparent. Through a live webcast all shareholders and stakeholders (worldwide) have equal access to important information. Download here our free Whitepaper about the webcast of the AGM.
Reference AGM webcast
A reference video webcast of the AGM of Philips NV is shown below. Most webcasts of AGM’s are video webcast and are also bilingual: the language of the country of origin and a simultaneous English translation for international viewers. The example below is also the English simultaneous translation.
