Preparing for an external quality assessment

Presented By
James Paterson PIIA With a career in both finance and human resources, James was also the head of internal audit for AstraZeneca PLC from 2002-2009. James has been training, consulting and coaching HIAs and their teams since 2010 and runs a number of key courses for the IIA, including the Head of Audit Induction Masterclass, Root cause analysis for internal Audit and Assurance Mapping. James was a member of the IIA Council and has been invited as a speaker at three IIA International conferences. James has had numerous articles published and is the author of the book Lean Auditing, published by J Wiley in 2015.

To ensure your internal audit function conforms to the IIA’s International Standards, regular independent external quality assessment is required. Chartered IIA studies show that there are still common findings that “catch out” IA teams.

This workshop is an invaluable tool to help avoid any significant findings as well as learning how to turn this process into a positive experience that can galvanise the audit team’s efficiency and effectiveness. This workshop also includes “war stories” about the EQA process so you can select the right EQA provider build the trust and confidence of key stakeholders, not undermine it.


Who should attend?

Experienced auditors or more senior audit managers/heads of audit who play a role in ensuring that the audit department receives a satisfactory external quality assessment.
