Writing an Award-Winning Annual Report

Wolters Kluwer 2001 Annual Report
Last year I worked as a freelance writer for Wolters Kluwer, a global information services and publishing company based in the Netherlands. I helped produce their 2011 Annual Report. Wolters Kluwer enable legal, tax, finance, and healthcare professionals to be more effective and efficient by providing information, software, and services that deliver vital insights, intelligent tools, and the guidance of subject-matter experts.

Award-winning Communications

I’m proud that the Wolters Kluwer 2011 Annual Report has been recognized by four organizations for quality of communications, including the written content which I helped edit:

    1. Two Gold awards for best Annual Report narrative within its class. I was especially proud to see that LACP gave the Report a score oof 10 out of 10 in terms of narrative, information accessibility, message clarity, and creativity.
    2. Among the Top 10 Annual reports (out of 800 companies).
    3. Ranked #5 in top Annual Reports for the EMEA region.
    4. Platinum award for best overall Annual Report within its class.
  • Second place in the Digital Communications Awards given by Quadriga University, Berlin.
  • Shortlisted for the FD Henri Sijthoff Prize which assess the quality of the financial communications of all Dutch companies listed on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange.
  • Awards from the UK-based IR Society for “Most effective use of innovative online technology to support investor relations communications” and internationally for “Most effective overall Annual Report printed and online”.

I look forward to seeing the 2012 Report that we are currently editing gather awards once it is published in March.
