Annual reports and CSR reports
One of the beautiful things about consultancy is that you occasionally get to be semi-expert on areas you never expected to know about. And they often turn out to be far more interesting than supposedly more glamorous sectors.
This happened to me with water and sewage. For several years, I wrote annual reports and CSR reports for Severn Trent Plc. I wrote the Chairman’s and CEO’s statements, strategy pages, performance reviews for various divisions, and HR pages. I also wrote annual reports and reviews for their subsidiaries Severn Trent Water and Biffa.
As a result, I happily wrote thousands of words on Ofwat price reviews, climate change adaption and mitigation, renewable energy production, leakage, whistleblowing, pollution incidents, business waste, and demergers. And I still feel a small sense of nostalgia whenever I see a Biffa truck.
