Whatever your beat – from politics or conflict, to sport, fashion or travel – pursuing impactful investigations requires journalists to examine the actions of private companies. Despite a world of corporate PR spin and complex financial structures that often work to obscure what’s actually going on, there are a wealth of tools and techniques to help investigators.
Knowing what you can find, where to look for it and how to make sense of it, both for yourself and for your readers, will allow you to explore and understand financial details so you can draw conclusions and drive your projects forward.
