Our inaugural Let's Talk Value conference is the concluding event of a year-long project focused on Integrated Thinking and Reporting.

The process of engaging with the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) as a potentially useful way of articulating value creation within higher education was started by BUFDG in 2016. We have built on the recommendations made in the 2017 BUFDG report to work with ten universities from across the UK to explore integrated thinking and reporting as a framework supporting a more holistic approach to strategic thinking, value creation and the communication of value.

Find out more about the Intergrated Thinking and Reporting project.

UK higher education continues to deliver excellence in education, research and engagement, but our collective ability to tell a story that makes sense of the world around and demonstrates that value in a way which connects with our stakeholders, could be beneficial on a number of levels for all institutions. The ten institutions, with oversight from a steering group of experts, have been working to pool their expertise in understanding and articulating how they create value and for whom.
The conference will share the experiences of the participant institutions, and perspectives of value from a range of stakeholders and organisations from inside and outside HE - including the OfS, UUK and IIRC.

In particular, participants will:

•    Consider how integrated thinking and reporting principles could provide the right framework for institutions to better communicate what they do.
•    Hear how different narratives around value in particular, can help universities tell their stories more effectively.
•    Gain insights from contributors, including the project participants about how taking a more integrated approach has helped them with strategy and stakeholder engagement (including students and governors), as well as influenced financial/organisational reporting for positive impact.
•    Review their understanding of the concept of value and be better able to tell the story of how value is created in an holistic way.

The conference has been timed to take place ahead of the autumn higher education reporting cycle, so members of executive teams and chairs of governing bodies can consider the potential to review the format of annual reports to better demonstrate value.

Mervyn King, IIRC chair and corporate governance leader said recently: “Integrated Reporting gives companies a heart, a mind, and a soul.”  It is now more important than ever before, that HEIs are able to demonstrate the value that they create for their students, their funders, governors and for society as a whole."

  • Debate how higher education creates and demonstrates value

  • Share insights about how to more effectively engage different stakeholders as part of integrated thinking

  • Share good practice on how to better communicate to stakeholders using integrated reporting

  • Understand some of the hidden capital/assets eg intellectual capital and how they can be used to capture a more holistic story of value creation

  • Challenge executive teams and governing bodies to review current approaches and consider the opportunity for strategic planning and stakeholder relationships.
