Course description

Chief Internal Auditor Programme for Banking & Financial Services

A very interactive course where ideas are shared by all participants, simply great learning” Head of Internal Audit, Ecobank

The trainer is highly experienced, with a diverse background” Chief Internal Auditor, Habib Bank Limited

In recent years, the corporate spotlight has focused increasingly on Chief Internal Auditors and on the impact and influence they and their teams can have. Their personal and professional relationships with their key stakeholders are vital to the reputation of the internal audit function and the support it receives within the organisation. This course will provide the Chief Internal Auditor with practical guidance aimed at enhancing their position and profile within their organisation, as well as the reputation and performance of their team.

The course will enable the Chief Internal Auditor to understand and develop attributes that demonstrate world-class performance, with particular emphasis on teamwork, relationships, innovation and the drive for continuous improvement.

The Chief Internal Auditor and his or her team are seen as key parts of the governance, risk and assurance framework and this course will also help the Chief Internal Auditor leverage the work of other assurance functions so as to present a more coordinated role in reporting to the relevant Board level committees (usually Audit and Risk) on strategic change and its impact on this framework.
