Annual reporting: Best practice in practice

This engaging course provides a comprehensive overview of recent developments in best practice reporting - both in the annual report and the digital expression of it - as well as an update on the regulatory impact of new reporting requirements. The course will also update you on the latest communication approaches to ESG and the relevant reporting frameworks.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone involved in the production of their annual report (IROs, company secretaries, group financial controllers etc)
  • Service providers involved in the production of annual reports

What will I gain?

  • A thorough understanding of the UK Corporate Governance Code
  • An overview of how to tell the strategic story of the company
  • The latest thinking on best practice integrated reporting
  • The latest views on best practice online reporting

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

"All speakers were engaging and complementary; I liked the fact they went into detail about the practical elements of report writing but also best website/digital practices. A great overview of how far we've come over the past few years and how people are adapting to print, as well as other challenges."
