Our Approach

Beyond minutes

As we get to know your business, we can work with you on annual plans, schedule of reserved matters, terms of reference and conflicts of interest.


We help board members focus on their core responsibilities, such as strategic decision-making and oversight, by ensuring that they have the information and resources they need to do their job effectively.


We help Board members to understand their director duties and requirements to meet codes of conduct and regulatory requirements.

AGM Meeting Support

A company’s annual general meeting (AGM) is a critical part of the shareholder engagement for a PLC listed entity. Properly managed, it can help to build relationships with shareholders, demonstrate that the company is following best practice corporate governance procedures and set a path for the year ahead.

However, the AGM can put significant strain on a company secretariat division, attempting to carry out a function that changes every year. The experts at Elemental CoSec have broad experience of dealing with AGMs for companies listed in a wide range of markets. By engaging Elemental CoSec you can be confident that the AGM will follow best practice, run smoothly and that your in-house company secretarial division will be able to focus on their core responsibilities.

The services we provide include:

  • the drafting and preparation of the AGM notice, including the resolutions;
  • drafting of the proxy form, Chairman’s script and associated documents;
  • advice and guidance on current institutional guidance and best practice;
  • liaising with the company’s registrars re proxy voting;
  • attendance and support in running the meeting;
  • producing minutes of the meeting; and
  • preparation and filing of relevant resolutions and forms with Companies House after the meeting.

We offer a full range of corporate governance services from governance reviews to ongoing annual compliance.
