Internal Audit Forward Online

Flexibility and agility in game-changing times!

Date and Timings: Wednesday, 7th April 2021 | 11:00 am – 12:45 pm GST

A strategic and proactive Internal Audit can steer businesses clear in the risky landscape the world finds itself in. 2020 was a disruptive year with which, changes happened, and will continue to happen.

While digital technologies and remote auditing have been rightly in the spotlight, effective communication, business continuity planning, talent management, and agility were and will continue to be key factors in the years to come.

Join us at the Internal Audit-Forward webinar, which will cover topics and areas that are the need of the hour.

Through open-ended panel discussions and roundtables led by a group of key members within the Internal Audit space, the webinar will focus on the way forward in ensuring Internal Audit functions remain at the forefront of ensuring organisations remain ethical, compliant, and disciplined whilst remaining agile and flexible in ever-evolving environments.

All this from the comfort and safety of your screens.
