Post Brexit risk management

21 March | Birmingham


With the UK committed to leaving the European Union in March 2019, internal auditors have an important strategic role to play in helping organisations prepare for the changes and manage the risks and opportunities ahead.

Organisations need to ensure they understand how their business will be impacted and put plans in place to manage or mitigate risk where necessary. We will discuss a number of subjects surrounding the potential effects of Brexit on the assurance world and look at real life examples.


What you will learn

  • Develop practical understanding of how businesses are dealing with Brexit.
  • Remain up to date with good practice risk management concepts and understand how these need to link to the internal audit process.

Speakers

  • David Paton, professor of Industrial Economics at Nottingham University Business School and editor of the International Journal of the Economics of Business
  • Alex de Ruyte, Director of the Centre for Brexit Studies at Birmingham City University
  • Giles Smith, risk business partner, Thomas Cook Group
  • David Rudd, large company Brexit lead, HMRC
  • Sean Miles, head of operational risk management, Santander
  • Kitesh Patel, risk and internal controls manager, Volkswagen Group
