2012 Peter Edwards Memorial Lecture

Annual Research Lecture of the Business School, University of Adelaide and CPA Australia

Presented by Sir David Tweedie, President of the Institute of the Chartered Accountants of Scotland and Chairman of the International Accounting Standards Board  2001- 2011.

The global accounting experiment stands at a crossroads, with the key to success lying in the adoption of IFRS by the United States.  Sir David will discuss the likelihood of success and the alternatives if the US delay a decision on using international standards.

In 1990, Sir David, an outspoken critic of the accepted accounting practices of the time, was appointed the first full time Chairman of the newly formed Accounting Standards Board, established to reform the UK’s accounting standards. In 2001, he was selected to be the first Chairman of the International  Accounting Standards Board, which he led for ten years. Sir David was instrumental in the promotion of Standards around the world.
