We offer the opportunity for Board members and key IFRS Foundation staff to speak at conferences or to participate in panel discussions.
To submit a speaking engagement request please complete the relevant form below and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your request is for a Board or staff member to speak in Japan, please use the Asia-Oceania form.
Please note that we receive many requests of this nature, and that as a not-for-profit, public interest organisation, the IFRS Foundation will normally charge to speak at conferences organised on a commercial basis. Please allow ten working days to receive a response to your request.
Licensing the IFRS Foundation's intellectual property
The IFRS Foundation generates an important part of its income from the use of the Foundation’s intellectual property (IP). This includes its content and trade marks, and the processes required for seeking permission to reproduce any of our IP are outlined below.
As the originator and owner of IFRS Standards, including IAS Standards, IFRIC Interpretations and SIC Interpretations (collectively the ‘Standards’), we engage in licensing our Standards to third parties wishing to reproduce them in their own products and services or distribute them in different jurisdictions.
Our main focus is licensing the Standards to third parties wishing to use the content for commercial purposes. If you are interested in adopting our Standards for your jurisdiction, please see our adoption and copyright information on the right hand side.
Our licensing activities generally fall into two main areas: permission and licence agreements.
If you are looking to include some of our IP in a one-off publication (hard copy or digital) you are required to seek the permission of the IFRS Foundation.
If you have or are looking to create an ongoing product or service that uses any of our IP (for example a business intelligence database, an eLearning product or a series of face-to-face training courses with or without support material) a licence agreement will generally be more appropriate for your needs than a permission agreement.
Please complete the licensee questionnaire to provide an overview of the use you wish to make of our IP. Once you have completed the form, send it to email@example.com and we will be in contact within the next 30 days.
Use of the IFRS Foundation's registered trade marks
If you would like to discuss using one of the Foundation's registered trade marks within your own product or service, please complete the licensee questionnaire form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of the licensing team will be in contact within 30 days. Find more about our different registered trade marks.
The IFRS Foundation, including the International Accounting Standards Board, is a stimulating and challenging place to work.
We have around 150 staff, mostly based in London but with a small Asia-Oceania liaison office in Tokyo, drawn from around 30 nationalities covering roles in technical, operational and support functions.
We undertake a wide range of consultation from a number of advisory bodies made up of accounting organisations and financial experts from around the world, and appoint new members on a regular basis.
As such, a wide range of opportunities are available from time to time to become involved in our work, whether as a member of our staff in technical accounting or operations or through one of our advisory bodies such as the Advisory Council or the Transition Resource Group for IFRS 17 Insurance Contracts.
Careers within the organisation naturally divide into technical and operations. Click here for information on positions including members of the Board, technical staff, communications and others.
The Asia-Oceania office provides a dedicated, regional point of contact for stakeholders interested in, or affected by, the work of the IFRS Foundation and the International Accounting Standards Board.
The office serves as:
- a dedicated contact in the region;
- a regional base and research hub; and
- a platform for deeper cooperation with regional stakeholders.
