CEO of the International Integrated Reporting Committee (IIRC), Paul Druckman, will share his significant knowledge around corporate and investor relations when he presents at the WPRF being held in Melbourne, 18–20 November 2012
Paul will specifically focus his discussion on strategy, governance and financial performance in social, environmental and economic contexts.
With a notable career spanning more than 35 years, Paul Druckman is well known and respected in the business and the accounting profession world‐wide, and has been a consistently fine ambassador for a number of companies and organisations.
Druckman’s mission as IIRC’s CEO is to create a globally accepted integrated reporting framework which brings together financial, environmental, social and governance information in a clear, concise, consistent and comparable format. He aims to help with the development of more comprehensive and comprehensible information about organisations, prospective as well as retrospective, to meet the needs of a more sustainable, global economy.
“He has tirelessly worked to bring together all stakeholders—including companies, reporting organizations, investors, policy‐makers, regulators, assurance providers, academics and others—which has resulted in creating a truly valuable global dialogue around integrated reporting”, said Christy Wood, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the International Corporate Governance Network and IIRC member.
Previously serving as Committee Chairman for The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project, Druckman has played a leading role in integrated reporting since the inception of the IIRC in August 2010. He served as Co‐chairman of the IIRC Working Group and Chairman of the Content taskforce, and spearheaded engagement activities, leading to the recent launch of the Integrated Reporting Discussion Paper ‘Towards Integrated Reporting – Communicating Value in the 21st Century’.
Following a successful business career in the technology sector, Paul operated as a non‐executive Chairman and Director for a number of companies in a variety of sectors. Formerly, he was a Director of the Financial Reporting Council, a member of the City Takeover Panel and President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
As Co-founder and Chairman of M Institute, Druckman applies his practical experience and thought leadership skills to the organisation based on a career in both the medium enterprises themselves and in the political arena.
Paul Druckman has a strong interest in sustainability matters resulting in other high profile work outside of the IIRC including chairing the FEE Sustainability Group, and with his substantial experience, he is sure to deliver some impressive insight at the forum in November.
