Investor Relations 101
Today’s public relations professionals wear many hats and are often asked to lead other disciplines for their companies. One such discipline is Investor Relations, which involves publicly traded companies communicating with investors, shareholders, government authorities and the financial community. Unlike regular public relations practices, investor relations practices have significantly more regulatory requirements than standard public relations, with potential legal and financial impacts.
Join FPRA Orlando to learn the basics of investor relations from the leaders of this discipline at Darden Restaurants.
