Synergy for Success:
What goes into a successful Shareholders' Meeting?
Dr. Barbara Strand, President, Psych/Consult Systems

We're sounding a wake-up call to corporate management: post-Enron, post-market bubble, the climate is changing drastically and your annual shareholder meeting—and you—must change with it. New legislation is reshaping corporate responsibilities and shareholder expectations and oversight. Both globalization of markets and the emerging power of special interest groups are shifting stockholder demographics, and disillusioned and distrustful investors are increasingly aggressive and litigious.
If you're planning the old-style, management-controlled 'dog and pony show', you're in for a rude awakening. You must work long before, during, and well after the Annual Meeting to maximize its positive results. Psych/Consult Systems can work with you at every step.
