"David Phillips was an accomplished Partner in the Assurance practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP until his retirement at the beginning of 2012. He joined the firm in 1978 and became a partner in 1990. During his career he was partner on many major clients as was also an advisor to the Hundred Group of Finance Directors.

"David is recognised worldwide for his thought leadership on corporate reporting and for his work to reshape the corporate reporting model to meet the needs of investors. A leading expert on effective narrative reporting and the challenges of the sustainability agenda, he is co-author of ‘ValueReporting – Moving beyond the earnings game,’ a book that challenges the adequacy of the financial reporting model. Over the past decade, David has led an extensive research programme in the investment community to highlight the real information needs of investors and the shortcomings of the current reporting model.

"David was the driving force behind many publications which examine the efforts of the world’s leading companies to enhance their communications. He is also a founder member of the Report Leadership initiative which develops innovative ideas for enhancing corporate reporting. More recently, David has been a key contributor to the Accounting for Sustainability initiative sponsored by the Prince of Wales and was a member of the working group of the International Integrated Reporting Committee which is making the case for a change to the mainstream reporting model.

"David also pioneered the PwC’s Building Public Trust Awards and is a member of its judging committee. The awards are now in their tenth year and celebrate the commitment of the UK's largest corporations and public sector bodies to build public trust through their external communications.

"Through all his work David has gained an in depth knowledge of the governance, stewardship and remuneration agendas and has also worked with a number of “think and do tanks”, including Tomorrow’s Company (where he is a member of their governance forum) The Work Foundation and Policy Network.

"He is married to Caroline and has three children, Lucinda, Charlotte and Thomas. He is a trustee of Sevenoaks School and has a passion for vintage cars and skiing." [1]
