Communicating the character of your company
Today, Black Sun hosted a working lunch in conjunction with Tomorrow’s Company to discuss communicating the character of your company – the new agenda for winning investor and public confidence.
This round table discussion featured a stimulating debate addressing comments made by John McFall (Chairman of the Treasury Select Committee) at the 2010 ICSA Conference, ‘I cannot emphasise how important it is that business sets its own house in order…unless companies improve their own governance, or the institutions which ultimately own companies take steps to control them, pressure to legislate for such control will grow, and pressure for intensive, quite possibly inappropriate, regulation will build’.
The seminar was well attended by key individuals from major corporate and investor organisations to include: BAE Systems, BBC Worldwide, BT Group, John Lewis Partnership, Marks and Spencer, Railpen Investments, Standard Life Investments and Thomas Cook. One of the major conclusions from the day was that the annual report is an opportunity for a company to communicate how it differs from its peers, not how it is similar.
