Anstee on world stage
ICAEW chief executive to speak at World Economic Forum in Davos
ICAEW chief executive Eric Anstee is set to become the first UK institute
chairman to speak during a session of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Anstee is expected to speak on the competitiveness of qualifications during a
discussion chaired by Richard Levin, president of Yale University.
The annual Davos conference of the WEF takes place in two weeks and sees
politicians, economists, businessmen and financial experts gather from all over
the world to discuss issues affecting the global market place.
Many of the world’s top accountants will be at Davos, including Mike Rake,
chairman of KPMG international. In the run up to the event he said that
over-regulation was a major risk to the accountancy market, but also insisted
that business has to understand the case for corporate social responsibility.
