Annual Shareholder & Stakeholder Reporting that encompasses the financial, societal and environmental business of an organisation, is not just responsible corporate behaviour, good PR and good citizenship, it’s a vital commercial activity that methodically identifies current, medium and long term contingent liabilities and potential law suits and class-actions. There are many costly examples of public companies and utilities realising too late that their actions or products have stored up problems for years that emerge to decimate their reserves and share-price. Templates for year-on-year comparisons; advice and editing for public reports; workshops and advice on communicating good and bad news to the Markets, to shareholders and stakeholders. In the Information Society, President George Bush Snr. forecast that there will be no secrets. So invest more in managing your formal and informal corporate communications.
