We’re partnering with the Center for Corporate Reporting to consolidate our Swiss presence

We’re pleased to announce a new partnership with the Center for Corporate Reporting, founded on our mutual expertise in the fields of corporate transparency, strategic narration and facilitating learning from peers.

Teaming up with CCR gives us an excellent opportunity to provide exchange, networking and learning opportunities for our clients with CCR members in Europe, from Switzerland to Germany and beyond.

Based in Zurich, the Center for Corporate Reporting is a member-based center of excellence aiming to enhance the efficiency, quality and impact of reporting – through personalized advisory services, analyses and peer-to-peer learning. CCR offers members a range of services, from job search to internal workshops, and brings them together regularly at roundtables and events, including its annual corporate reporting symposium (Geschäftsberichte-Symposium), now in its 12th year.

Its publications include the semi-annual The Reporting Times, an online publication Reporting Insights and the Corporate Reporting Monitor, an annual study into all aspects of corporate reporting.

CCR’s activities are an excellent complement to our own, especially in the field of reporting where we’ve been analyzing trends through our research for a number of years and in supporting clients (you can see a selection of recent projects here). Above all, we share the same enthusiasm for bringing together corporate practitioners in workshops and events where they can gain incredible insights through sharing experience and active discussion.

We’ll be actively collaborating on these fronts and have already shared perspectives: see for example our articles in CCR’s Reporting Insights (one here from James Osborne on the role of sustainability in generating trust during the pandemic) as well as CCR content featured in our Lundquist Quarterly magazine.

As the Covid-19 restrictions ease, of course, we’re actively planning a new series of events, both in Italy and Switzerland with the aim of bringing together a wider group of companies in our initiatives and enhancing their effect. More on that soon! First up is CCR’s 12th Geschäftsberichte-Symposium in Zurich on June 23rd where we are facilitating a break-out session on the role of storytelling to manage emerging stakeholder expectations in corporate reporting, featuring case studies from our clients Saipem and Barry Callebaut.
