On our twentieth(!) podcast episode of The Bank Account, Jonathan and I take the opportunity to discuss tips for how to approach challenging shareholders or circumstances at your annual meetings.
Unfortunately, Jonathan had a brain freeze during recording, and forgot to use his favorite Mike Tyson quotation, “Everyone has a plan ’till they get punched in the mouth.” That said, planning ahead for disruptive shareholders is almost always worthwhile.
Providing a written agenda and set of governing rules to attendees can further help establish and maintain order, but it often comes back to simply ensuring that the disgruntled shareholder is provided an opportunity to be heard.
We’re also thrilled to announce that we’ve updated our recording microphones. While our voices and ideas are unchanged, we hope you will find your listening experience improved. We also want to thank all of our listeners for their comments and feedback. We’ve heard from many of you via e-mail, twitter, phone calls and even in person face-to-face meetings. As we recorded this episode, we had already reached 5,000 downloads, including listeners in 39 states and the District of Columbia.
