Audit Priorities for Senior Leaders

Audit Priorities for Senior Leaders

Part 1: Auditing Governance, Strategy and Risk Management

Strategy, governance, risk management and other boardroom processes have historically been "no-go" areas for internal audit. Today, this is no longer the case and objective, independent assurance on governance is now seen as crucial. The latest IIA Standards are explicit in making these areas integral to the scope of Internal Audit.

Over three days you will:

  • Learn how to provide assurance on risks and controls to strategic objectives
  • Establish which governance areas to audit - and how to do it
  • Develop the business case for internal audit involvement
  • Become a catalyst for improvement - without compromising your independence
  • Take-away practical checklists and sample audit programmes

Part 2: Auditing Ethics, Culture, Conduct and Reputational Risk

Recent corporate disasters have highlighted the importance of establishing and maintaining a strong ethical culture. In the wake of the financial crisis, banks and other businesses are now focussing specifically on conduct and reputational risks. The Board's oversight role increasingly extends to organisations culture and ethics - and internal audit faces the challenge of providing assurance in these "hard to audit" areas.

Over two days you will:

  • Understand the core components of corporate culture and an effective ethical framework
  • Identify the key sources of conduct and reputational risks for your organisation
  • Learn how to provide assurance to satisfy your board
  • Explore how internal audit can act as a catalyst for improvement
  • Discover how to present your findings to achieve "buy-in" and action

Methodology: The training week is extremely interactive with case studies and real life examples used throughout. Participants will have the opportunity to network and share experiences with other senior professionals

Suitability - Who should attend?

Chief Audit Executives, Internal Audit Heads, Managers, Supervisors and Lead Auditors from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
