Effective Communications

Terms of Business

Following the changes in Corporate Governance as well as those resulting from the Spitzer enquiry into Equity Analysts’ working practices, Corporates now need to be even better prepared to ensure investors understand their message. This is particularly true for smaller and mid-sized companies, who have often seen their “coverage” by equity analysts significantly reduced.

At Ward Cook, often in conjunction with your other advisors, we work to establish your communications strategy and equity story. We develop consistency in your key messages and your ability to deliver these convincingly in all situations which effect your corporate development and more often than not, your share price. We focus on helping you define the right level of content for each audience, the structure of that content for maximum impact and build your personal confidence in delivery. Assignments undertaken range from: hostile bids, mergers and acquisitions, disposals and demergers, new listings and all forms of fundraisings and preparation for results meetings, to business winning presentations and conference speeches, broadcasting, webcasting and other media exposure.

Today bankers, brokers, analysts, lawyers, accountants and other professionals face an increasingly competitive environment. They often have only one chance to convince a potential client to appoint them. Even if the marketing process allows for greater exposure, they not only have to demonstrate their skills and ability but do so in a ‘user friendly’ way. Our successful client-focused methodology, coupled with our communications approach has frequently made the difference between ‘winning’ the client and coming second.
We have a number of associates, both in London and Paris, enabling a broad range of skills to be accessed, complementing those of the founder, Anna Cook.

We operate on both a retained and “assignment” basis.
