One of the panels will discuss regulation and disclosure for the SEC, and the other, called “Bored Board,” will discuss making presentations to a board of directors.
Then, from October 27-28, Lamm will be headed to San Diego, where he will give a presentation called “50 Nuggets in 75 Minutes” and a 5-minute “PEP Talk” on the top 10 things every public company should do to improve its proxy statement.
