The Company Meetings Handbook will act as your ultimate reference point to all things meetings, an area that is more complex than ever in the new working environment we find ourselves in. This book will ensure that these meetings are fully understood and undertaken in the most efficient and valuable manner

Written in a clear, logical manner, it will guide you through the different stages of a meeting, from convening a meeting, to chairing and voting, through to all the necessary post-meeting tasks such as handling the minutes. It’s the perfect book to have to hand to advise you on the various processes involved and to answer any queries you may have.

It offers both highly practical guidance on the running of meetings, as well as a thorough exploration of the governance structures that underpin the law of company meetings. A brand-new title, the book is informed by the latest legislation, regulation and corporate governance codes of practice. What’s more, it contains a section dedicated to technology and virtual meetings, something that’s crucial for organisations to get right in the current situation. Packed full of useful checklists, templates, legal precedents and much more, it’s a resource you will want to own.
