The Virtual AGM


I’m not sure how many people attended our AGM in Wellington last year.  Had to be over 1,000.  This year we went virtual so the room in Sydney has less than 100 people in it.

This has to be a good thing:

  • People from over 15 countries engaged live
  • Xero offices tuning in and some have shareholders dropping by for morning tea – so good and much more human
  • Saves money and time – and better for the environment
  • People seemed OK asking questions online and the smaller room was great

Interestingly, over 500 people tuned in over the web from more than 15 countries.

Wonder why more don’t do this? Thoughts?
