Annual reports: yearly headache or company calling card?

For many corporate communications departments, annual reports are a necessary evil, something they must compile every year to oblige shareholders and regulators. But an annual report can also be a powerful tool that brings alive corporate strategy and conveys a company’s vision to a broader audience.

How do you produce a vibrant and compelling annual report? What do investors seek? What exactly do regulators demand? These are just some of the questions we hope to answer at a special event Stampa is hosting for communications and investor relations professionals in Amsterdam on 11 September.

Having worked with numerous blue-chip companies on their annual and/or sustainability reports, we’re aiming to share some of our insights with participants at the event. Joining us will be three guest speakers, experts in their fields, who will address various aspects of the annual reporting process:

  • Paul Koster, Chairman of Dutch shareholders’ association VEB
  • Paul Frentrop, Professor of Corporate Governance at Nyenrode Business University
  • Erik van der Merwe, Chairman of the Achmea Supervisory Board and jury member for the Sijthoff annual report prize

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own best practices during the afternoon and to network over drinks afterwards. Chatham House rules will apply, allowing free and open discussion. The event will be held in Dutch.
