CHICAGO, August 28, 2012 – InterCall, a subsidiary of West Corporation and the world's largest conferencing and collaboration services provider, today announced the availability of its new Top 10 Tips to Successful Earnings Calls Guide. The InterCall Event Services team created the Guide to help organizations anticipate, plan and execute exceptional earnings events.
“Earnings calls are high-profile, high-stakes events. Global audiences, competition for capital and the pressures to perform in today’s business environment demand that investor relations professionals deliver earnings events that are dynamic, flawlessly executed and yield results,” said Kathleen Finato, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InterCall. “Our guide provides best practices from InterCall’s experience of working with 82 percent of Fortune 500 companies. We cover traditional audio-only calls and offer suggestions for creating memorable webcasts that solicit feedback and monitor engagement from participating investors.”
The Guide discusses the value of offering earnings call webcasts, where slides, graphics and video can be used to make the presentations more engaging versus traditional audio-only calls. One of the most important capabilities webcasting adds to investor relations is the ability to capture and analyze data after the call. By reviewing the Q&A from the event, looking at how many attendees participated actively (and who they were), and how well-prepared the executives making the presentation were, organizations can learn and make improvements for future calls.
The Top 10 Tips to Successful Earnings Calls Best Practices Guide can be downloaded free by going to this link. Additional tips for successful webcasts are available by viewing this archived webinar, as well as through the InterCall blog.
