Remuneration Committees, or RemCos, play a key role in governance. But what are the key considerations in today’s environment? How are the pressures increasing? And what attributes and experience make you an effective RemCo Chair or NED?

At this insightful event we will share broad perspective on Remuneration from expert, Lorna Dodson, Partner at Ellason LLP and an experienced RemCo non-executive member (tbc).

Designed for those new to or considering joining a Remuneration Committee, we will also hold space for experienced RemCo members to share their experience and concerns.
