October 8, 2014

Is now the time for the BV profession to pull together and establish global BV standards? Can it be done? What are the obstacles? The global standards conundrum is just one of the issues that will be discussed during the “Lively Debate on Global Business Valuation Education” on October 23 in Toronto, Canada. A panel of global BV educators will debate the issues and challenges in the design of a global BV designation and accreditation system. The session will take place immediately following the annual general meeting of the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC).

Panel members include April Mackenzie, CEO of the IVSC; Ben Elder, global director of RICS Valuation and EQS; Bob Morrison, chair of ASA Business Valuation Committee and chair of IIBV Education Committee; and Doug McPhee, global head of KPMG BV education.

Hosted by the International Institute of Business Valuators (IIBV) and Business Valuation Resources (BVR), this event is free. If you can’t make it in person, the event will be webcast live. For details, click here.
