Thursday's AGM was Keswick's first after taking over from Peter Hill-Wood and he used the medium to pay tribute to his predecessor. He went on with the normal business of the gathering after which he handed over to Wenger and Kroenke who both addressed the audience.
The club's Chief Executive, Ivan Gazidis alongside Sir Keswick also took some time to treat pre-submitted questions before entertaining new ones from the floor.
Here is the transcript of Arsene Wenger's and Stan Kroenke's speeches at the Annual General Meeting.
"It is a pleasure to be here. This is my sixth AGM and it is great to be back. I appreciate people re-electing me to the board. Well, it was close to unanimous!
"Anyway, it is great to be here and I would tell you we are pleased with the progress of the Club and that is made up of a lot of things, most importantly on the pitch.
"None of us up here [on the board], fans, players, or Arsène [Wenger] are happy until we have won championships and trophies. We have said that over and over again and are committed to that.
"Also, when you try to build towards that, it is very important for the Club to be successful commercially, and we are very pleased with the progress we have made in that area.
"We have come a long way, with the debts of the Club being paid down, the commercial revenues are increasing in a nice way. Certainly you guys are aware of the Emirates deal.
"We have more [deals] coming and are confident. However, nothing works unless we have success on the pitch.
"The reason we got interested in Arsenal [after years of approaches from other teams] was... the tradition, the image and the success of the Club and that to me has been established by none other than our manager.
"In our opinion, with the values he stood for and the things that we value in sport, they were evidenced through him and through this club. So we are very pleased to be here and I couldn't be more honoured to introduce our manager Arsène Wenger."
"I would like to thank Mr Hill-Wood and wish him very well. He was a symbol of what Arsenal is about. He respected traditional values and was forward-thinking as well - the biggest example was he appointed me, which was very brave and forward-thinking.
"During the time I have spent here, I always had backing of the board, and that is a brave attitude, which was one of the qualities he had. I would also like to wish well to Mr Chips Keswick and I hope we will have a great time together in the coming months.
"Last season did not start in the best way, because we lost Robin van Persie and that created a lot of unrest and scepticism around the team, we were a bit destabilised. Nevertheless, we managed to redress the course of the results and from November onwards until the end of April, the beginning of May, the team has shown a fantastic mental strength.
"We had two huge disappointments in the cups, it was the first time in 17 years that we went out against lower division teams, but in the Premier League, we stabilised the results and we finished in a very strong way. If you put the end of the season onwards from March up until today, we lost just one game in 26 or 27.
"I must say that the Aston Villa game created a huge revolution, for two simple reasons. First of all it was the first game of the season, it happened at a time when we had not bought anybody, people became a bit nervous and I can understand that.
"The mental strength of the team was fantastic because three days later we travelled for a difficult game in Turkey and came back with a very positive result.
"I would say that our policy in the future of the Club… after a very long, restricted period financially, when we had to be very tight, we have come out of that with good stability in our results. But of course we have a huge ambition to win this league again, that is the target of the season.
"I still believe our policy has to be based on three different levels and we want to continue that with success.
"The first level is, of course, to continue to defend our style of play, our philosophy of play and our values. That can only be done by developing our own players, and the core of our team has to come from the development inside our club.
"That is why we make huge investments again in our youth policy. I believe that has to be the core and the strength of our club. If you go today through our squad, for example we have completed or partially educated Szczesny, Jenkinson, Gibbs, Wilshere, Ramsey, Chamberlain, Gnabry - all these players who have made their debut in the Premier League with us.
"They know how we want to play, they know how we want to behave and they bring their qualities and these values to the team.
