Audit Committee Service

The Audit Committee Service is exclusive to audit committee chairs and members. The aim of the service is to provide you with information that enables you to be a great audit committee chair or member. This space will equip you with the tools to be more informed and more effective against a backdrop of great change and uncertainty.

In contextualising what you need to know as a member of an audit committee, this service aims to put to rest the confusion and stasis that comes with being new audit committee member in an organisation and having to navigate in the dark. A problem which, as our Chief Professional Practices Advisor notes, is a common feature among new audit committee members who initially struggle to understand their responsibilities and wished they were effective sooner.

What benefits await me?
