Autumn events at Emperor 

Posted in Events on 11 September 2020 By Molly McKinnel, Marketing Executive

Our online seminars continue to offer support both in the short-term delivery of your communications priorities, and longer-term food for thought as we emerge from the current pandemic to a changed world.

TCFD - What’s next?
Thursday 1 October | 11:00 - 12:00 BST
Companies are under increasing pressure from governments and investors to address and disclose climate-related issues and risks and climate and environmental credentials are going to impact financial decisions and access to capital in the near future. The Task Force on Climate-related Disclosures (TCFD) sets a benchmark for companies to disclose climate-related information on risks and opportunities to stakeholders, and it looks increasingly likely that businesses are heading towards mandatory disclosure by 2022. 

SIFA Strategy and Emperor host this virtual forum to discuss the practical aspects involved in implementing TCFD. By attending you will gain insight into some of the legal considerations, the steps required for implementation and the associated challenges and opportunities. 

This event is by invitation only and is aimed at C-Suite and Director level practitioners responsible for TCFD implementation/disclosure within their organisations. Each forum is limited to 12 places to ensure that a meaningful dialogue can take place. Chatham House rules apply. To accept your place, please register with Molly McKinnel at [email protected] indicating which date you would like to attend.

AIM: Beyond compliance to more authentic reporting
Thursday 1 October | 10:00 - 11:00 BST
The focus for business is now on long-term, sustainable success. This means the pressure is on companies to show they are thinking about more than short-term profit, by demonstrating their broader contribution to society, how they are taking stakeholders’ needs into account and how they are responding to environmental challenges.

We have reviewed the first December year-end AIM 100 annual reports to be published, to see how these companies are looking to address some of the themes moving up the corporate agenda whilst approaching new reporting requirements, and to provide insight into the corporate reporting landscape as it continues to evolve.

Join us as we share the key trends, along with best-in-class examples, to help you enhance your reporting and communicate a compelling and cohesive corporate narrative. RSVP by emailing Molly McKinnel at [email protected].

S172: Successful reporting
Tuesday 6 October | 11:00 - 12:00 BST
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 explores how companies have approached s172 statements and investors’ perspective on such statements.

Together we are hosting an intimate, virtual roundtable discussion to share your insights and experiences in more detail. The Financial Reporting Lab would also value your input on their guidance for preparers going forward as they develop a set of tips for companies to consider when preparing their s172 statement. 

If you'd be interested in participating, please RSVP by emailing Amber Ali at [email protected].

Back to business with resilient comms: Getting on the front foot for the future
Wednesday 7 October | 14:00 - 15:00 BST
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 will facilitate this panel discussion with Equitory, Naked Wines Plc and Gattaca Plc to discuss the lessons learned over the past six months and how these are shaping the key messaging requirements for 2021 and beyond. 

This webinar will be presented on Spark Live, London Stock Exchange's dedicated service for digital presentations and events. Find out more and register here.

Recordings from our 'Keeping communications out of lockdown' event series are available to watch on our Vimeo Showcase page.
