Dear ECE Members,


As interested equity compensation professionals from around the world, I know you will benefit from attending the upcoming Global Equity Organization (GEO) Conference in Paris.While I know that budgets are tight, the GEO conference is a special event focusing on the impact of equity compensation across the globe.  The sessions are great and the environment is structured around effective networking.


GEO will be holding its 10th Anniversary Conference from 10 – 12 June 2009 in Paris, France.  As you may be aware, GEO's Annual Conferences provide great opportunities for professionals like you who are involved in designing, issuing and supporting employee share plans to gather together and learn from peers and other experts in the field of employee share plans. As such, we thought we would share some highlights of this event and hope you'll consider attending this year's conference.


Below are a few things you can expect to gain by attending GEO's 10th Anniversary Conference:


Choose from a record 45 sessions, delivered by more than 100 experts, on the most important issues facing today's employee share plan professionals, including:

-        How to deal with underwater options – is re-pricing the answer?

-        What are the current and future legal, regulatory, compliance and tax issues facing multinational companies?

-        What role will share plans and equity compensation play in future remuneration strategies?

-        What can I learn about end-to-end implementation of a global share plan – design, communication and accounting?

-        What do I need to know about operating plans in ‘difficult’ countries?


Additional conference benefits:

-        Visit the world-class Exhibit Hall showcasing the latest products and services to help you excel in your job.

-        Participate in an issuer-only lunch allowing you to speak candidly with your peers and share best practices.

-        Attend the GEO Awards celebration recognizing companies who operate successful and creative share plans.

-        Meet with old and new friends and colleagues at the various networking events.

-        Receive continuing professional development credits.


We have participated in past GEO Conferences and are confident that this year's event will deliver the high quality, valuable learning and networking experiences you require during these challenging times. Visit the GEO website at for full conference details and to register.


I look forward to seeing you at this very important conference.  THE ECE will be scheduling an informal get together at the conference so we can all meet each other in person.  On a personal note, my firm, Performensation Consulting, will have booth at the conference.  Please stop by and say hi.  (you are also invited to attend my presentation panel "Why do they call it software when it is so hard for my vendor to get it right?")


Please feel free to contact me or GEO ( directly with any questions.  Michael Bendorf, the Executive Director of GEO is also an ECE member.  Feel free to contact him directly through the ECE message function.


With best regards,

Dan Walter

ECE Founder

President, Performensation Consulting

    Alas, no Paris for me. Hope to see everyone at the SVC NASPP Conference on June 18th. Much cheaper than a ticket to Paris!
