AGM for Whitbread Shareholders

Costa, Premier Inn and Beefeater are among the brands of  Whitbread, the UK’s largest hotel and restaurant group, and shareholders are updated about the company’s progress and have the opportunity to put questions to the Board at the Annual General Meeting, which Talisman has produced and run since 1994. Back then, its core business was selling beer and running pubs, and as the mix of the business has shifted so too has the style of the AGM.

The company’s focus on creating value for shareholders means it’s important for the AGM to be professional and user-friendly, while not appearing extravagant. Sets are kept simple, with graphics to reflect the corporate brand identity and changing face of the business. The Chairman and CEO’s speeches are visually supported by presentations including video and information on proxy voting.
