The best PE firms go to great efforts to make sure their LP days are engaging and interesting. They do this with careful planning for their private equity investor events. This planning includes:
Having a clear theme for the day
Structuring the event so it gets more and more interesting as the day progresses
Using video to help tell some of the more complex and remote stories
Choosing and training speakers so they come across as engaging and interesting
Fully rehearsing all the hardest parts of the event so that it runs smoothly and without a hitch.
Planning all the pre- and post- event communication to support the event.
Some of the problems we have seen in private equity investor events, include:
Overly long and complex presentations
Poor handing of questions and answers
Terrible use of visual aids and handouts
Investors not being at the centre of attention
