3rd Colloquium: Integrated Thinking and Doing an Integrated Report

20 May 2020 @ 08:30 - 13:30 *
* South African Standard Time, UTC + 2:00


The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), in November 2019, issued a statement saying that there has to be accounting for value creation and that it is preferable that the chief financial officer is known as the Chief Value Officer. This statement supports value creation in a sustainable manner and indicates that a change of mindset is needed. Effective corporate leaders that think about developing a company’s business model and its strategy on an integrated basis.

The theme of the 3rd colloquium was therefore Integrated Thinking and Doing an Integrated Report, a cornerstone of developing an organization's business model and strategy on an integrated basis.


The memorandum of proceedings provides a precis of each presentation, input from panelists and a summation by our Patron, Prof. Mervyn King. View the memorandum here or on the GGA Community.
