By Superna Khosla, Integrated Reporting Policy Lead at PwC
As we gallop towards the Christmas holidays, it feels like the corporate reporting world has just finished ‘peak conference’. For those connected with integrated reporting, there was a bit of a mini marathon last week with the IIRC-ICGN conference focusing on longer-term investment. With colleagues, I ran a workshop on encouraging long-termism: shifting the balance from historic to forward-looking information to an audience of investors, business and IR grandees (including Mervyn King). As inspiration, we had an image of the two-headed Roman God Ianus on display, whose power lies in the fact that he has a face to the past and an equal one to the future.
