Annual reporting - best practice in practice

With the new Strategic Report requirements in place, we aim to reflect on how far companies have come. During this process we will look at how companies have approached the new requirements and identify what emerging best practice looks like – both in print and online. Looking to the future, the course will also update you on new narrative requirements which are on the horizon.

"All speakers were engaging and complimentary - a great overview of where we've come to over the past few years and how people are adapting to print as well as other challenges. Online and integrated reporting was particularly interesting."
