Fidelio Board Breakfast: “RemCo Chair – The Hot Seat”, 22 January 2019

Fidelio is delighted to host a Breakfast Roundtable for Remuneration Committee Chairs to be held on Tuesday 22nd January 2019.

Across Fidelio’s Search, Evaluation and Development assignments, we see the challenges facing Remuneration Committee Chairs increasing driven by stakeholder and shareholder pressure. Fidelio is therefore very pleased to be joined by Ruth Cairnie, who chairs the Rolls-Royce and Associated British Foods Remuneration Committees, as well as a select group of Remuneration Committee Chairs across a range of sectors and geographies to address key challenges for this critical role:

  • The Remuneration Committee Chair is very much in the “hot seat” in terms of managing expectations internally and externally. Are there practical recommendations to navigating what can easily become a minefield?
  • How does the Remuneration Committee engage with other Board Committees, particularly the Nominations Committee?  How broadly should the Remuneration Committee define its remit vis-à-vis the Board and versus other Committees?
  • If Remuneration breeds behaviours, what lessons have Remuneration Committees learned over the past five years? How effectively does the Remuneration Committee promote a strong corporate culture?

This Breakfast Roundtable is by personal invitation only and will be held at Aquavit London, St James’s Market, 1 Carlton St, St. James’s, London SW1Y 4QQ. For more information, please do get in touch on +44 (0)207 759 2200 or
