Next, I presented “The Effects of Global Say-on-Pay: Coming to Your Stock Plan in 2013” to the Pacific Northwest Chapter of GEO on 25 September. This references my book chapter in GEOnomics 2012 “Say-On-Pay’s Impact on Equity Compensation Design: Horse or Camel?.” (free download)
Then, my webinar for Equity Administration Solutions, Inc. (EASi) on 18-October, with the same title as the recent GEO presentation, took the topic further and explored how fast-moving trends outside the US will drive US practices in the coming year. So much had happened in the 3 weeks since, that there was a new dimension.
Interestingly, all of this ties into the presentation I’ve been doing with Terry Adamson of Aon Hewitt, “Value and Valuation: Understanding Long-Term Incentive Data.” We presented at WorldatWork’s Annual Conference in Orlando in May, again at NASPP’s Conference in New Orleans last month (with Billy Vitense of Starbucks), and now headed to do the presentation later in November for a joint meeting of NASPP’s and GEO’s Boston Chapter on 16-November.
I am pleased to send the presentation from any or all of these to you if you are interested. If you deal with equity compensation (which if you’re reading this you probably do) you will need to know this stuff, in the coming months. It will pay to know it, even if I do say so myself. Oh, the places you’ll go…
