What’s usually the only time during the year when your shareholders and executives interact?
You guessed it! Your annual general meetings (AGMs).
Though fast becoming a virtual event, these mandatory meetings are a means of building stronger and more engaged relationships with your shareholders. Your AGMs also offer investors valuable information that’s extremely useful for their investment decision-making process.
Doesn’t it make sense then to maximise these key events through your website?
Yes, you can tap your site to provide shareholders a central information hub for your AGMs. So, they’ll easily find essential facts and figures related to your AGM in a specific web page.
Read on to consider these ideas that are sure to step up your game for your AGMs.
1. Create a dedicated page for your AGMs
Your AGM page will be a one-stop-shop for everything AGM. Use this page to post the date, time and venue or links to your online meetings. Include other items like your Notice of Meeting, AGM Announcements and AGM Calendar. Peak into HGL’s website for some excellent inspiration on how it’s done.

2. Showcase annual reports on your AGM page
Present your annual reports and financial statements on your AGM page to detail your company's performance and strategy. You can also include a yearly archive of materials from past AGMs for quick reference. This way, investors will instantly access data from current and previous AGMs as they weigh in on your business.
3. Host webcasts and presentations on your AGM page
Management presentations are great opportunities to share your leaders’ vision of the company's future. Through webcasts, your shareholders can join your AGMs in real time from anywhere or at a time of their choosing through recorded versions. These elements would be perfect for your AGM page. A great example of this brilliant technique is seen on Phoslock Environmental Technology's website here.
