Last week eShare sponsored the ICSA Subsidiary Governance Conference; with over 170 company secretaries in attendance, we had some great conversations regarding the strain the new regulations have placed on the role and insights into how people are managing their subsidiaries. ICSA’s aim to help boards understand subsidiary governance is one that we echo, and was something that we were looking forward to discussing.
The eShare stand was active throughout the conference with people interested in seeing EntitySquared, our new entity management solution. With current and future clients of ours looking at how it integrates with our board portal BoardPacks, and comparing it with the current way they manage their subsidiaries. Technology has taken centre stage at many events we have attended in 2017, not only how to use it efficiently but most importantly how to regulate it properly. As companies grow the need for transparency and accountability increases, with the understanding that if companies can get this right, they will continue to move forward.
Edward Rees, eShare’s Regional Sales Manager who attended the event said,
“It’s great to see that organisations are really trying to improve the way they manage their governance. The look of delight on their faces when they see just how simple our software is to use and how easily they can change the way they manage their subsidiaries worldwide and still comply to all the new regulations for their sector. I am looking forward to carrying on these conversations post event and helping people move forward as new regulations take the spotlight.”
The conversations and discussions on the stand and throughout the morning were lively and it was great to see how much enthusiasm everyone has for improving governance. The increased interest in an event like this speaks volumes, attendees are incredibly knowledgeable about the importance of good subsidiary governance and it is at events like this where they keep that knowledge up to date and think about new ways to manage their governance.
ICSA Subsidiary Governance Conference was a great event for eShare and we are keen to keep building our relationships in this sector and helping companies understand the technology that can aid them in improving their governance. Our whitepaper on the struggles for company secretary’s was well received throughout the event, if you would like a digital copy, you can download it here. Keep an eye out for our survey results that we had on our stand, these have brought out some interesting statistics.
