Midlands Conference 2019

The Midlands Conference is the IIA Midlands regional group's annual celebration of the profession and its practitioners.

The 2019 conference will look at topics relating to the core activities of internal audit functions, sharing fresh perspectives and concepts to help drive the delivery of top class assurance. 

Why attend?

Gain an understanding of how leaders in Internal Audit are addressing key challenges and opportunities facing our profession. These topics will be familiar, but the event will provide fresh perspectives, thoughts and examples of how these are being considered and acted upon.

Culture, fraud, technology, risk management, data analytics and reporting are not new to us, but the auditor of the present and the future needs to have clear thinking on how these affect the provision of effective and valuable assurance to their stakeholders.
