Develop a future focused approach for executive compensation strategies in a corporate environment.

This session will provide a deeper dive into the pros and cons of traditional qualified plans; deferred compensation structures such as cash based LTIP structures/phantom stock/stock appreciation right, ESOP, true equity, and stock options/restricted stock. We will dig into it all and highlight examples of Best Case and Worst-Case real world examples of what provided the goals – recruiting and retaining your key performers.
