CIMA’s 2011 World Conference will bring together over 600 international decision makers from leading organisations to discuss best business practice and the future of corporate sustainability.
Speakers include globally renowned thought leaders in the business and finance arena who are making a difference by reducing their footprint and remaining successful.
As corporate sustainability continues to develop a constructive presence in boardroom decision making, it’s important for strategy makers to understand the implications of their decisions. According to CIMA, management accountants are particularly well positioned to take a leading role. The conference aims to provide techniques to develop sustainable strategies from real case studies, discovering their best practices.
According to the event’s organisers: “Building sustainable performance into an organisation’s core strategy will create a real value and innovation opportunity to your organisation as well as will minimise risk. Understanding how to respond to social and environmental trends and how to implement and communicate with your stakeholders are key success factors.”
Confirmed speakers include Mervyn King of the International Integrated Reporting Committee; Bunker Roy, social activist and educator; Steve Berry, author of Strategies of the Serengeti; and Chris Middleton of Sky Owls observatory.
The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) is the world’s largest and leading professional body of management accountants, with 183 000 members and students in 168 countries.
