"The course gave valuable expert insights into key global geopolitical developments. Unlike other courses on this topic, Derek also provided ways of thinking about the wide range of business impacts and how risk and IA professionals can enhance their approaches to identifying, managing and assuring these risks - ultimately within the context of a Geopolitical Risk Management Framework".
John Kennedy, Group Risk Director and former Group Head of Internal Audit, BSI Group
The course was among the best that I have attended with the Chartered IIA. It deepened my knowledge and understanding of the cash management/Treasury function, its activities, its criticality to the business and, perhaps most important, the controls that internal auditors should expect to see in this area. Raj leveraged his wealth of personal experience on this topic to bring the subject matter to life in an engaging and insightful manner. I’m very glad I signed up for this course.

This course exceeded my expectations. I learnt extremely valuable knowledge that I will apply to my practical working day. Stephen was amazing in his delivery style, fun and engaging.
"The course was excellent from beginning to end: the content, presentation, and discussions were so informative and helpful. There were only three of us on the course and I believe that made a big difference from a virtual point of view."
Having attended The Basics that Matter course, myself and all the attendees came away quite invigorated about going back to our roles and
"I found the course interesting and insightful. It was really helpful to get involved in discussions with other IA professionals to hear how they do things. Thank you to you and the team for great course content and good conversation".
"John Chesshire is a worldly-wise speaker. On the complex, evolving subject of ESG, he sees the wood for the trees. A great choice by the Chartered IIA."

Data analytics for auditors | Internal audit analytics - data and visualisation
Today, audit teams want to maximise the use of data in their audit programmes. Many audit teams are doing some data analytics already, and most teams have a range of skills, experience and interest. But others struggle to get buy-in or are not sure where and how to start or are struggling to make the most of their existing tools.
In collaboration with our training Partners, Technology4Business and Mindgrove, the Chartered IIA is delighted to bring you two CPE-accredited audit specific data analytics programmes to help you wherever you are in your data analytics journey.
Data analytics for auditors
Designed for those new to data analytics, as well as those with some experience but are self-taught, this course will provide auditors with practical knowledge and skills for embedding data analytics into their audit work.
Delivered via Teams over 6 x 3 hour sessions, the course is a practical introduction to data analytics and covers:
- understanding data and data structure to enable auditors to “talk the language of data”
- practical advice on how data analytics can be effectively introduced into your audit team and the audit process
- includes how to plan and document your audit analytics
- includes practical activities and skills to obtain, prepare and analyse data (using Excel) facilitated discussions about WHERE, HOW, data analysis can be used in YOUR audit plan
- includes post-training “surgeries” for ongoing discussions and advice as you put the training into practice.
