FMN - 2020/April, Seg.1 - Disclosure Effectiveness: Who Tells Your Story?

Course Overview
Public companies are quickly adapting their disclosures to provide better information as regulations and investor sentiments evolve. Traditionally, financial reporting professionals often interpreted “better” to mean “more”...more narrative and more tables, in many cases. That has led to narrative losing its nuance, turning into boilerplate or repetitive language, and tables failing to bring value to the reader. Ultimately, disclosure effectiveness has suffered. April Brady, a Senior Director of Product Marketing with Workiva explains why it is becoming increasingly important for companies to tell their own story through disclosure.
