Ireland Conference

26 March 2021 | Online

Auditing through complexity and change

2021 promises to be a year of further change as we navigate the world of blended working arrangements, competing demands and changing priorities. How will internal audit rise to these challenges? What skills do we need to audit effectively in this new complex environment? 

This conference will focus on emerging risks and opportunities facing organisations. We will consider these questions and examine the role that culture has to play.
