Surviving in a post pandemic world
Presented by: Mat Cooling
As the world begins to emerge from the pandemic which has rocked the world’s economic, financial and sociological structures we as a profession must begin to ask ourselves what risks does this new environment pose and more importantly are we asking the right questions of management to provide assurance over these risks.
This course will focus on the short term risks that organisations will be grappling with and finish with an overview of some of the longer term or structural risks that we will all have to address as the years progress.
Who should attend?
This is a must attend for all internal auditors and other assurance professionals as we leave pandemic restrictions and government support. No specific experience or knowledge is required.
What will I learn?
Upon completion you will be able to:
