Planning for your year end reporting

Join us on Wednesday 18th November 2020 at 15:00 GMT to discuss how you can plan your year end reporting to reflect recent trends and the essential best practices.

  • Section 172 of the Companies Act and the increasing importance of stakeholders
  • An update on ESEF, what to expect and what you can do to ensure you hit the ground running when the revised version comes into effect
  • COVID-19 risk management procedures and end of year reporting in the face of uncertainty

Are you getting your story straight? Realising the value of an authentic corporate narrative

Tuesday 24 November | 10:00am - 11:00am

The challenges of the past few months have given many businesses both the opportunity – and in many cases the need – to question and scrutinise what their businesses stand for and how they are positioned.

  • Does their corporate narrative authentically and accurately define the company’s vision, communicate the strategy, and embody the culture?

  • Can it inspire employees, give confidence to investors, excite partners, attract customers, and engage influencers?

In this power hour we look at what communicators should be expecting of their corporate narratives and what to do if they have been found wanting.

Two exciting FTSE 250 businesses that have recently gone through the process of examining and refreshing their corporate narrative, key messaging, EVP and brand identities share the journeys they have taken:

S172: Successful reporting

We've recently undertaken research into Section 172 (s172) and stakeholder reporting and, as you may know, in July, the Financial Reporting Lab launched a project on stakeholders and s172. The initial stage of the project explored how companies have approached s172 statements and investors’ perspective on such statements.

Back to business with resilient comms: Getting on the front foot for the future

The manner in which businesses have communicated throughout the past months has had a dramatic impact on both reputational and commercial outcomes. Through resilient IR and coherent communications, many have created clarity, built resilience and catalysed positive change.

Hosted by London Stock Exchange Issuer Services, Emperor, Equitory, Naked Wines Plc and Gattaca Plc discussed the lessons learned over the past six months and how these are shaping the key messaging requirements for 2021 and beyond.
