PRSA - Changing Landscape of Annual Reports
An annual report can mean far more to your company than just a 10-K wrap to fulfill the legal requirement for filing. Many companies are extracting great value from the annual exercise of stating and documenting progress toward a company’s vision, mission and goals.
Doug Wolfe, president of ProWolfe Partners (St. Louis) and Peter Faur, APR, president of RightPoint Communications (Phoenix) will help you use an annual report to improve your messaging and corporate positioning, demonstrate why your company merits consideration as an investment and to communicate with stakeholders (other than shareholders).
