Rethinking Reporting: Annual corporate reporting seminar at Black Sun
Today, Black Sun hosted a Rethinking Reporting Seminar which launched the findings of its latest research into FTSE 100 corporate reporting trends.
The day included three lively panel discussions with over 100 guests - including representatives from over 30 FTSE 100 companies, investor, legal and accounting bodies and the media – joining in the debate.
Topics ranging from governance and stewardship to online reporting and investor demands were discussed with the panel who were from regulatory, corporate, investor and interested groups including: David Loweth: Accounting Standards Board (ASB), Mark Jobling: Association of British Insurers (ABI), Tim Goodman: Hermes, Jessica Fries: The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project, Ben Mathews: Rio Tinto and Mark Goyder: Tomorrow’s Company, among others.
This thought provoking seminar gave delegates more insight into: the impact of recent reforms on transparency and disclosure; the trend towards integrating financial and non-financial performance and; the evolving needs, expectations and behaviours of stakeholders through web based communications.
One delegate commented, “Great corporate reporting research report and seminar, as usual.” Consultant, Top UK Business School.
