"Internal Auditors (IA) are pivotal to the strengthening and assurance of good corporate governance, internal controls and risk management. With change being the constant factor, IA, in our currently evolving economic, political, regulatory and technological environment, must broaden its scope and improve its capabilities, with the end goal being of integral overall value to organisations. For better efficacy, IA needs to be constantly updated on trends, risks, business landscapes and furnished with the opportunities to enhance their skillsets."
"This year, the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Singapore is proud to partner with the Singapore Accountancy Commission to launch the inaugural Global IA Leadership Summit just before IIA Singapore’s Annual Conference, where the theme is “Agents of Change, Pillars of Control”. Audit professionals at every level of their career will benefit from networking and benchmarking with peers. This conference will provide a shared platform from which all participants and guests will be able to exchange their ideas and expertise to further benefit IA practitioners. A panel of distinguished thought leaders will also be speaking and sharing their valuable insights to allow IA professionals to be reenergized with new perspectives as they return to their organisations with the tools to formulate more effective strategies to achieve IA excellence."
