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.

What will I gain?

Anyone involved in the production of their company’s Annual Report looking for ideas on how to improve its effectiveness, both printed and online. This course will also benefit service providers involved in the production of Annual Reports as well as others involved in IR such as company secretaries or group finance controllers.

The course will cover:

  • Developments in best practice reporting - both in print and online
  • Update on new reporting requirements including the Strategic Report

Additional content will be incorporated into the course to reflect any new legislation or regulatory announcements.

A very useful overview of the complete reporting sphere. A lot of varied topics covered, provoking a lot of through and further investigation.

All speakers were engaging and complementary – I liked the fact that they went into detail about the practical elements of report writing but also best website/digital practices. 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.
