Why You Should Attend

9th Annual Internal Auditors 2016

2016 is the year for more action! To thrive in the Middle East’s recovering economy post oil dependence, companies are undergoing changes that can weather the shock of lower oil prices. As organisational change takes place, the internal audit is expected to provide beyond just assurance. To make the transition from merely ensuring compliance with rules and regulations to truly delivering added value requires more than just organisational changes. A substantial shift in culture is required.

The audit profession must rise to the challenge, embrace the key audit trends for 2016, and raise the standard of auditing to meet the higher level of expectations now required. Ever-faster change has made spotting and controlling risks far more difficult. Internal audit teams must now serve a strategic function to gear their firms in becoming more agile

In collaboration with IIA, marcus evans is proud to present our flagship 9th Annual Internal Auditors forum on the 26th – 28th September 2016 in Dubai, UAE. Combining insightful expert presentations, industry – focused breakout sessions, and thought provoking interactive discussions, the 9th Annual Internal Auditors conference will bring you up-to-dates topics on themes covering The Evolution of Internal Auditors Roles and Responsibilities, Deconstructing Today’s Fraud For Tomorrow’s Controls, Fostering The Dynamics With Your Stakeholders, and Strengthening The Internal Audit Governance, Risk And Compliance Structures.
