Our expert team has a varied background within communications, each of us with years of experience in corporate reporting.
Working closely with you throughout the annual reporting project, our team provides precisely the skills and services you need.
Without the overheads of a prime office location or the labour costs of junior support staff, we can ensure your reporting budget goes further. We help you overcome the familiar struggle of balancing cost effectiveness with the desire for a high-quality report that aligns with best practice.
Through informed, intelligent, thoughtful reporting, you can increase investor trust and confidence in your business, and help ensure you realise its true value.
Through our experience in reporting, we understand:
- what investors and other stakeholders are looking for
- the market dynamics in any given sector – how they shape the business models, opportunities, strategic objectives and the inherent risks
- the reporting landscape and the current trends in reporting
- the value of persuasive stories and best-practice integrated content.
In effect, we aim to enhance every aspect of your reporting and make it consistent across channels.
While working strictly to your agreed budget, we’ll manage resources and schedules in the most effective way, without sacrificing the creative process.
What We Do
We tell your story effectively, and help you communicate the real value of your business to all stakeholders. Services we can help you with include:
Best-practice content support
We provide expert advice on what content you should be including in your annual report based on our knowledge and understanding of current regulatory requirements and your industry classification.
We provide an overview of both industry-relevant and similarly sized companies’ best practice examples, based on current reporting trends and our recommendations for your report.
We analyse the needs of your key stakeholders, including investors, media, employees, clients and suppliers, to ensure your report satisfies their interests.
Content development planning
We produce an in-depth content matrix which maps the content from last year’s report onto the pagination plan, adding new content and providing best practice guidance for each section.
Creative direction, design and typesetting
Our experienced design team will help with a well-formed and executed creative design brief that can transform your report, tell your story effectively, highlight your key messages and differentiate you from your competitors. We also work within your brand guidelines, and ensure we turn proofs around accurately and efficiently.
Copywriting and editing
Using an experienced writer is vital for providing an external and industry-wide perspective; for creating a consistent voice and reducing repetition across different contributors; and for ensuring all stakeholders will be able to understand the report.
Whether you’re looking to create a full HTML reporting micro site, adopting an online-first approach, or simply need a searchable pdf download, we have an in-house digital team with the expertise and tools to support you.
We work with Tangelo to give you the option of total control of the content and production process, as well as the ability to publish simultaneously across all formats, or handle requirements such as ESEF (European Single Electronic Format).
We provide transparent cost-effective solutions based on three price point options.
These may reflect exactly the support you need, or we can discuss them with you as a basis for agreeing a more tailored solution. We can also help build your Investor Presentation, with a simple ‘per-page’ price. Whatever you need, we can provide you with budgeting certainty from the outset.
