    Value Creation Through Professional Accountants in Business

    Presidents, fellow professional accountants, ladies and gentlemen. Good morning. It is a great pleasure to be here to chair and to introduce the third and final plenary session of the 2006 World Congress of Accountants on "value creation through professional accountants in business." I am delighted to be joined here this morning by three most distinguished individuals who will lead our discussions:

    • Lady Barbara Thomas Judge, who is, inter-alia, Deputy Chair of the Financial Reporting Council of the UK, Chairman of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and Deputy Chairman of Friends Provident Plc as well as being a former (and indeed the youngest ever) Commissioner of the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
    • Mary Keegan, who is Managing Director, Government Financial Management of HM Treasury in the United Kingdom, Head of the UK Government Accountancy Service and Finance Director of HM Treasury. Mary is also a former Chairman of the UK Accounting Standards Board.
    • David Hastings, who is Manager of Insurance, Shell Canada Ltd and a former Chair of CMA Canada's Board of Directors.
