Rachel and Chris will talk best practices as well as in dialogue with participants, what we are seeing right now at this challenging time exploring questions like:
  • How should we measure CEO performance this year? Can we do a meaningful CEO evaluation?
  • Should we pay bonuses earned for 2019, even if we are now in a crisis?
  • How should we adjust director pay?
  • What should we do about LTI plans given our current low share price?
  • Should we change our performance (and STI) measures now, mid year, to reflect the fact the goal posts have moved?
