Todd believes that accounting is not only broken but is contributing to the destruction of the planet. He is calling on accounting academics to help fix this. 

In this seminar he gives a broad sweep of the history of corporations from the East India Company to the modern day questioning current accounting orthodoxies along the way. Entity theory, the role of shareholders and the rightful claimants of retained earnings come under ferocious scrutiny.

This promises to be a provocative, fascinating and entertaining session that will challenge how you think about accounting and accountants.

There will be opportunity for questions and for you to share your views.
