TORONTO, Oct. 31, 2012 /CNW/ - The Canadian Investor Relations Institute (CIRI) re-launched wIRed, the first of three online publications being redesigned to better engage investor relations professionals and those in related fields. These important online publications provide relevant information on the investor relations profession in Canada, thereby advancing the practice of investor relations, the professional competency of its members and the stature of the profession.
All three publications have a fresh new look with a range of new functionality including:
- video capability;
- polling capability with results displayed instantly;
- comments section to gather audience feedback; and
- enhanced search capability.
"We are thrilled with wIRed's new design and functionality. Not only does it contain relevant information for the profession, it allows us to better engage with our members and other stakeholders in the capital markets," said Tom Enright, President & CEO, CIRI. "CIRI's other publications, IR leader (formerly Newsline) and IR focus, will be launched in November," he added.
Sutton Compliance Communications (SCC) were selected during a competitive RFP process to design and develop wIRed, IR leader and IR focus.
