God, Davey, you're an idiot. Do you have a clue as to what it is a CEO is supposed to do? I do - and it isn't showing up at every penny-ante venue that will let you set up a dog cart. Not that you'd know that from watching Frank Reynolds.
For the record, unless they file an 8-K before the Show-and-Tell this is all going to be all about the management changes and whatever non-material progress they can report without running afoul of FD regulations. And even if there is material news (and an 8-K), this is exactly the reason you hire an IR guy. Plus, he's a "Red Shirt" if disaster strikes.
You don't put your brand-spanking-new CEO on a plane going cross country after the shake-up we've had in this company, nor the CFO. You send the IR guy. The plane crashes, you send flowers to the funeral. I know it sounds harsh, but that's the way it is. It's an element of risk management, and it's pretty standard practice.
