Time for Change: Black Sun Annual Corporate Reporting Conference 2012
As the UK's only exclusively focused corporate reporting conference, Time for Change was a huge success and provided the forum for discussions and insights into corporate reporting trends and hot topics.
Black Sun Corporate Reporting held its 5th annual conference on Wednesday 13 June, a must attend event in corporate reporting, for all those that have an interest in where the future of corporate reporting is going and how to best communicate to investors and other shareholders.
An international line-up of speakers gave delegates from the FTSE 100 & 250, investor, legal and accounting bodies more insight into: the importance of building corporate reputation and strategies to compete for global capital; the rationale for integrated reporting and the benefits and challenges of looking ‘beyond the financials’; and how corporate governance changes are evolving disclosures and the effects these changes are having on investor engagement.
Immediately following the conference there was an elegant drinks reception, set in the picturesque grounds of Fulham Palace, which provided delegates with a fantastic opportunity to unwind and enjoy further networking with their peers.
The conference was aimed at individuals from key positions within Company Secretariat, Investor Relations, Sustainability and Corporate Communications and attracted representatives from companies such as AstraZeneca, Unilever, Britvic, Rio Tinto, Centrica, and BAE Systems. Other relevant industry bodies also included attendees from Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the IIRC, CIMA and the Financial Reporting Council.
Some of the feedback included comments such as: 'Well informed debate on the issues and the opportunity to meet like minded people - always enjoy attending the Black Sun event' and 'Thank you for all the hard work which had been put in by the whole team. Everyone showed off the talents of Black Sun to great advantage'.
