Events: How’s business?

Posted in Events on 20 May 2021 By Sarah Eklund, Marketing Manager


At Emperor, we’re always looking to share the latest insight to support you in delivering your communications strategy and take it to the next level.

We’re sharing the cutting-edge insight and expertise of our consultancy team in a series of virtual sessions, partnering with our network of experts and organisations to get to the heart of the burning issues and challenges of today.

Upcoming Events

Summer Serendipity
17 June | 13:30-14:15

Alison Nicholson, Head of Client Relationships, Workplace Savings at Scottish Widows
Many of us are well versed on the Gender Pay Gap and both in a personal and professional capacity are helping to lead, activate and communicate change. Scottish Widows’ recent Women and Retirement Report does however share some eye opening stats on the gender pension gap and the impact Covid-19 is having on women’s finances.

Join us for a relaxed, feel-good virtual discussion with your female comms peers with a short address from Alison Nicolson, Head of Client Relationships, Workplace Savings at Scottish Widows. She will share how we can be part of the change with guidance and actions that we can take to close the pension gap. Not just for ourselves, but for our teams, friends, and children.

The Serendipity Club is an exclusive networking group of women in IR/Financial communications to network, exchange ideas and have a bit of fun.

Tagging with ARKK
Tuesday 6 July | 11:00-12:00

Hosted by Amanda Woodward, Chief Commercial Officer at Emperor with Mary Tinnelly, ESEF Technical Consultant and Colin Davey, ESEF Regulatory Manager at ARKK.
All UK main-market listed companies are now required to conform to the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF). This means that they will need to produce annual reports in a new digital format.

Join Emperor and ARKK to talk through all things ESEF, including the taxonomy, XHTML, iXBRL, tagging and integrating the report into your corporate website. ARKK will demonstrate and walk through the new annual report process and we will cover what this will look like from a practical perspective, providing you with a demonstration and offering recommendations and guidance on next steps.

The right corporate website should be creating business, reputation and stakeholder value for your organisation.

This session will identify the value you can create with your website and help you level up your approach from a basic corporate site to a valued business tool. Due to the success of our first event, we are re-running the session.

Keeping communications out of lockdown

Over this period of uncertainty, we have taken the opportunity to provide intimate sessions for clients. These covered a range of topics to support our clients both in the short-term delivery of their communications priorities, and longer-term food for thought for when we emerge from the current pandemic to a changed world.
