“The webinar was extremely informative, it showed me why embracing the digital world to address shareholder activity is a necessity – not a want – and needs to be part of the Board’s risk plan as stewards to their shareholders.”- Denise Wanner
This past month, Andrew MacDougall, Corporate Partner and leader in shareholder activist matters at Osler, led a panel of distinguished speakers in a discussion of the world of social media and shareholder activism by embracing digital technology and addressing the steps boards must follow to ensure that they contend with shareholder/stakeholder activity in a social media driven culture.
This webinar highlighted:
The last comment from the webinar panel was that we are often stunned that some organizations still communicate with their shareholders by way of paper proxies. Utilizing a shareholder communications engine is the key component to increasing shareholder communication and loyalty, combating activism and reducing your organization’s carbon footprint. We are here to help you. Over 100 years of combined experience in the boardroom is what inspired GGA to develop emPower. emPower is the first ever digital boardroom that revolutionizes how boards prepare for and conduct board meetings; delivers peer compensation data and scorecards to build executive management incentive plans; and provides stakeholder/shareholder oversight and automated proxy/survey tabulation.
The marketplace for Boards of Directors is at a tipping point. Boards of Directors function in a digital world and most boards have not embraced the changes required to face the threats from that digital world nor leverage that world to positively impact the organizations they direct.

The board can conduct eCampaigns to customized groups of constituents and send customized messages that relate to important issues facing the organization.
