Concurrent session 1.2 

"Audit communications: what's new and what's next"? 

Drawing on her global experience in internal audit communications, Sara will discuss recent changes in practice across the world. What should internal auditors focus on to prompt meaningful change in their organizations? And what myths or outdated habits can they discard? As you will see in this brief yet interactive session, less is usually more.
