Internal Auditors 2018: Achieving Audit Excellence

The internal audit dimension is expanding and expected to provide beyond just assurance. Reflecting to the current business uncertainty, the “bull’s eyes” in the internal audit function is no longer limited to focus on the processes and controls surrounding financial reporting. They are now on an extensive journey to provide strategic contributions to protecting the business from any emerging and existing risk

The audit profession must rise to the challenge by embracing the key audit trends and raise the standard of auditing for effective performance and risk coverage. To meet stakeholders’ expectations, internal auditors today must face new challenges to move beyond their traditional internal control and assurance activities to gear their firms in becoming more agile.

Join our exclusive 2-day Internal Auditor 2018: Achieving Audit Excellence conference which offers you a platform with an esteemed line up of chief internal auditors who will share on all essential aspects that impact your role as an auditor. Enrich yourself with quintessential insightful expert presentations, roundtable discussions , and thought provoking interactive discussions, the Internal Audit conference will bring you up-to-dates topics on themes covering ‘ The Evolution of Internal Auditors Roles and Responsibilities’, ‘Emphasising the Crucial Role of a Fraud Risk Assessment’, ‘Sharpening you Fraud Investigation Skills to Detect Early Signs of Fraud’, and ‘Revolutionising the Internal Auditors Role in Corporate Governance and The Risk Paradigm’.
