Ireland Conference

2 April | Dublin

Auditing in changing & uncertain times

The Ireland annual conference is the Ireland Committee's flagship event. It brings together internal auditors and internal audit leaders from all over the island of Ireland, to engage with thought leaders on topical issues.

The theme of this year's event is “Auditing in changing & uncertain times”. We will examine what this means for organisations and internal audit, through the lenses of climate risk, reputational risk and the impact of disruptive technology.

Early bird price is available until 28 February.
