Events: How’s business?

Posted in Events on 16 February 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. This year, we’re also celebrating 25 years of business and as part of that anniversary, we’re looking at what sustainable business means in 2021 for our clients. 

To kick off our 2021 events season, 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. 

The untapped value of your corporate website
29 April | 10–11am

Cameron GunnHead of Digital, Emperor featuring clients (who we'll announce closer to the time)
The right corporate website should be creating business, reputation and stakeholder value for your organisation.

Your corporate website is one of the most important channels you have, but have you ever thought it could be working much harder 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.

In the session we’ll cover:

  • The types of value your website can deliver
  • What the best corporate websites have in common
  • Why we need to start thinking about the Digital Stakeholder Experience
  • Insights from those on the ground and how they’ve taken their organisation on the journey towards great digital communications
  • 10 practical takeaways to immediately improve your website beyond the usual checkbox
  • Q&A

This session is for clients of all sizes who manage or have responsibility for their company’s corporate website.

D&I: Diversity and inclusion or disruption and innovation?

Sasha Scott, CEO, Inclusive Group; Darryl MeadHead of Employee Experience, Emperor
Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of company culture. It helps bring together different perspectives and allows innovation and ideas to thrive. In this session, we got to the heart of what makes an inclusive culture and how to develop your strategy.

Take Control. Why brand and culture needs ownership

Keith TaylorHead of Brand, Emperor; Darryl MeadHead of Employee Experience, Emperor 
The company experience is undoubtedly in a period of extreme change and the very purpose of business is coming under scrutiny as stakeholders everywhere question its role in society.   

In 2020, we ran two concurrent surveys, one on brand and one on corporate culture, to which we had 328 respondents in total. This information was then analysed and discussed further in two focus groups comprising industry professionals to generate qualitative, in-depth insight. We shared the findings and our key thinking on brand, culture and employee experience for 2021 and beyond.

A recording of the event is now available to view and our full research findings can be downloaded here.


Reporting on risks, uncertainties and scenarios

Claire Fraser, Head of Stakeholder Communications, Emperor; Andrew Hyland, Project Manager, FRC Lab; Thomas Toomse-Smith, Project Director, FRC Lab
The FRC's Financial Reporting Lab is currently undertaking a project on reporting on risks, uncertainties and scenarios.
As part of the project, we will be joining up with the FRC Lab for an intimate, virtual roundtable.

The discussion focuseds on how risk management processes are evolving in light of the climate crisis, COVID-19 and diversity. We also explored the crossover between risk and materiality, risk in the Boardroom and horizon scanning.

This event has now passed.

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.
