New mandates are disrupting the annual reporting process. Ultimately, this will result in more complexity, more work and more diverse data sets to manage—all while under the same time pressures. The big-picture solution for this is to transform your reporting processes. But what should this actually look like in practice? And how can you bring about process improvement in a way that minimises risk while increasing efficiency and productivity?
During this session, the panel will explain why their most impactful changes never happen with a big bang but, instead, a slow burn.
Join them to learn:
- The steps that they took to evolve their processes over time—and what they’re planning to do next
- How to identify your top opportunities for improvement (whether audit agility; improvements to review, data collection, or connectivity; improving collaboration; deploying targeted automation; enabling design-centered reporting processes; or anything else) and focus action where it’s needed most
- How they developed a roadmap for change that makes sense for their unique business requirements
- Derek Leatherdale, Associate Director, The Risk Coalition
- Geert Asselman, Head of Internal Audit and Group Controller, Euronav
- Marc De Pauw, Director, PwC Belgium
- Tim Le Mare, Regional Sales Director of Integrated Risk, Workiva
- Andromeda Wood, VP Regulatory Strategy, Workiva
Disruption creates risk. And as new mandates alter reporting processes, the motivation to minimise risk is greater than ever.
How should businesses adapt to the changing landscape? What can they do to mitigate exposure to threats? And how can they leverage their internal risk teams to create business value?
During this session, we'll discuss:
- The benefits of establishing deeper connections between risk, controls, and the wider reporting function
- How risk professionals have successfully driven strategic business objectives
- How to establish stronger relationships between risk management and leadership
- Sonya Strage, Product Manager, Workiva
- Mark Rosenberg, VP of Product Management, Workiva
The regulatory landscape is in flux and demands from stakeholders are increasing. We’ll show you how the Workiva platform is keeping pace and ensuring that you’re fully tooled, both now and in the future.
During this session, we’ll explain the strategy that underpins the development of new product releases, under-the-cover improvements and feature improvements, how customers are using some of our latest features, what’s next for the Workiva platform, and how our new features will benefit your business.
- Marie Corger, Head of Sustainability, Materiality and Reporting, Philip Morris International
- Luis Espinosa, Senior Manager, KPMG
- Erik Saito, General Manager - EMEA & APAC, Workiva
Conversations about ESG reporting are often centred around environmental and social topics. This session will shine a light on the aspect of ESG that can get overlooked: governance.
It’s undeniable that stakeholders and investors want you to demonstrate complete transparency with regards to your company’s performance and to see how ESG ties into your financial performance. But it’s equally true that they want to know that you have robust governance and controls practices in place.
Join to learn:
- How Philip Morris are incorporating governance and transparency within their holistic sustainability strategy
- How leading organisations are tackling challenges surrounding the integration of financial and non-financial reporting
- How to meet evolving ESG expectations head-on
- Lara Wilson, Financial Controller, Fleetcor
- David Grant, Managing Director, Forvis
- Matt Crawford, VP of Growth & Customer Marketing, Workiva
In the new era for reporting, there are three major priorities: minimise risk, achieve data integrity and establish trust. Ultimately, organisations need to be confident in the data that they collate and the information that they include in their final reports. This can only be achieved if they maintain control of their reporting environment and gain oversight of all data, processes and activities.
During this session, we’ll be joined by a customer who will explain how they became confident in the consistency of their data, established full traceability, and saved time during report preparation and review.
- How to create a unified process that will drive data consistency, traceability and audit-readiness across different disclosure and risk workstreams
- How to win back time ahead of new mandates coming into force
- How connected data helps speed up audit streams
- Dr. Ben Caldecott, founding Director of the Oxford Sustainable Finance Group and Senior Research Fellow of Sustainable Finance at Oxford University
- Erik Saito, General Manager - EMEA & APAC, Workiva
