Overview of content for conference has teamed up with Andrew Menhennet, a Director at reward and training consultancy Yellow Hat, to develop this one-day conference that will offer you an in-depth analysis of executive remuneration in the UK.

Delegates will learn about the principles behind sound executive pay design and governance in the UK, as well as typical market practice and the legislative context within which listed companies must operate. The day will include illustrations of executive pay in practice drawn from the E-reward executive pay database.

Who should register

The conference has immediate relevance for all senior reward and HR managers and other corporate governance professionals who are involved or interested in reporting executive remuneration in UK listed companies. It will also be suitable for anyone working in other organisations where there is an expectation that executive pay reporting will adopt some or all of the practices of listed companies.

You will be served a magnificent lunch and lovely refreshments through out the day. We guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the event and hope you will take advantage of this special invitation and come along as our VIP guest.

You won’t be disappointed with the networking opportunities with other executive remuneration specialists.

Don't spend a fortune exhibiting at trade shows only to keep missing your target. Avoid the 'rent-a-crowd'. Our niche showcase events let you target an elite reward audience with a bullseye first time

We’ve clearly identified the market segment and researched a 'Showcase’ event giving you full accessibility to this hard-to-reach audience. And we have invited selected delegates, all with proven interest and a desire to find our more about each specific topic.

The bigger exhibitions have their market. Your product is different and it requires access to decision-makers. Our niche events provide you with access to your target market. A senior-level audience with proven interest in exactly your product.

The key to selling your solution is to be able to define and subdivide the large homogeneous HR market into clearly identifiable segments with similar needs and wants. Your objective is to market precisely to these people and present your product and services which precisely matches their expectations and needs.

Few companies are big enough to supply the needs of an entire market; most must breakdown the total demand into segments and choose those that the company is best equipped to handle. E-reward’s niche showcase events do exactly this for you.

>>> No crowds of time wasters, no wasted budget – just the precise market you need to sell to and network with.

>>> High-calibre audience of 100 senior reward managers from leading UK companies.

>>> No more than six 'sponsor' speaker slots plus a very small number of exhibitors – guarantees you maximum exposure to your target audience and ensures your message is not diluted.

Get in touch for a delegate list and information about the senior reward practitioners and decision-makers who attend our events. We deliver brilliant reward events. The quality and seniority of our audience is hard to beat – all potential customers standing right in front of you. A smaller crowd, but no time wasters.
