  • Use of the IFRS Foundation trademarks or logos is not granted when a Foundation speaker agrees to speak. Generally, the use of IFRS trademarks and logos is only granted when the Foundation agree to participate in a joint or co-branded conference.
  • For the avoidance of doubt, the recording or broadcasting of presentations (whether audio only or also video) require the prior, express approval of the IFRS Foundation.
  • Once agreed we will always use our best endeavours to meet our obligations to speak at the event. However, there may be times when, due to events outside of our control, that necessitate our withdrawal from a speaking engagement. This will always be communicated as early as practicable, and alternatives, if available, offered. Further the engagement may be terminated by the IFRS Foundation.
