Producing a Brilliant Annual Report

Events - 16 Apr 2014

This annual event provided a low down on how to produce an annual report that meets the requirements of government agency's and stakeholders as well as the Public Sector Commission's 2013-14 Annual Reporting Framework.

The workshop featured experts in publishing, finance and government who provided practical, handy hints to help participants produce a more effective annual report without all the hassle.

The workshop covered what is required to “pull together” an annual report as well as the critical elements that impact on bringing an annual report together to meet key accountability and communication requirements.

This year, the seminar included two case studies from very different organisations in terms of size and purpose.

Topics Included

  • Latest annual reporting requirements for government agencies
  • The story behind an 'award winning' report
  • What to consider when making your annual report accessible online
