Proofreading Annual Reports

The terms ‘proofreading’ and ‘editing’ mean different things to different people, depending on the type of document and the client’s background. In the publishing industry, there is a distinct line between copy-editing, which is getting a document ready for print, applying a style guide, re-writing or re-phrasing parts, and proofreading, which should just be a final quality-control check on a ‘proof’ copy before pushing the start button on the printing press.

Annual Report Structure

Annual report structures tend to be quite similar. There is probably a good reason for that, stakeholders, board members and the like, like things just so and CFOs do like their accounts to be set in a straight forward 'workman' like manner. All of that is fine. You can still mix it up a bit without upsetting the apple cart. The same suggestions apply to impact reports, strategy reports, but for now, I'll stick with a reasonably heavy weight report, the sort of thing you see in the finance industry.

Charts and infographics

Infographics are a brilliant way to quickly communicate a journey, a process, a service, all sorts of things. They are far more visually engaging than a paragraph of text and done right, can deliver complex messages quickly and with style. We do a lot of them and there are certain things that help make them work hard for you.
