The not so curious case of David and Goliath
This Tuesday, courtesy of Communicate Magazine, The Corporate & Financial Awards celebrated a night of excellence for Investor Relations Communication.
Hosted by the very affable @BBCSimonJack and patronised by various design glitterati friends and clients, CKD were nominated for Best AIM/ Small cap Annual Report for IGas Energy plc, Best International/ unlisted Annual Report for Temenos Group AG and Best FTSE 250 Online Report for Playtech plc.
Being the only true benchmark of companies’ communication with the City and its influencers, the awards programme celebrates and showcases excellence in financial communications, but more importantly, provides recognition for the efforts of staff, companies, agencies and beneficiaries.
So we were delighted to receive a Gold Award for Best AIM/ Small cap Annual Report for IGas Energy plc and two Bronze Awards respectively for International/ unlisted Annual Report for Temenos Group AG and FTSE 250 Online Report for Playtech plc.
It’s not about resource, it’s about quality, it’s about trust, faith and relationship. It’s about storytelling.
This is not just a win for CKD or our Clients, it’s recognition for lots of agile consultancies up and down the country who are brave enough to take on a challenge, stick their neck out, interpret and create a relevant story worth telling.
‘It’s just an Annual Report’ I hear you say. Maybe, but it’s also a craft beyond some. It’s time we recognised that it’s not only an obligation, but a must for great Investor Relations.
So here’s to storytelling…
