The <IR> Business Network is the vehicle for organizations that want to improve the quality of their integrated thinking and reporting, including helping you:

  • Respond to demands to integrate non-financial information into your business strategy and within your mainstream annual report
  • Understand and explain the value of your intangibles – and integrate human, social and intellectual value into your strategy
  • Tackle head on practical challenges faced by businesses – issues like compliance, materiality, and how to achieve completeness and conciseness in your reporting
  • Demonstrate and communicate value creation in its multiple dimensions.

Participants in the <IR> Business Network learn from peers and technical experts, sharing experiences as they address implementation challenges. The <IR> Business Network gives you the tools and the confidence to make change internally, and embed a multi-capital approach across your organization. 

You will also receive a confidential critique of your current annual report, with input from investors, to help guide you on your journey towards improved disclosure.
