2019 Thought Leadership Series Internal Audit: Adding Strategic Value


Rausch Advisory Services is proud to present this next event in our Thought Leadership Series - Internal Audit: Adding Strategic Value.

Management and boards are demanding more value from internal audit.  Additionally, audit leaders have written and spoken of the need for auditors to be trusted advisors and to partner with business management. This is a very desirable thing and, of course, some audit teams have already achieved it and while other need to pivot while doing more with less. The practical question for audit is: What can they be doing differently?

Rausch has pulled together a dynamic panel of C-level executives who are leaders in Internal Audit, Strategy, Information Technology and Finance. These executives will their insights with the attendees.
