Join Us For January's Webinar: Audit Like A Leader - Communication And Leadership In Auditing

Join us for the Audit Division's next webinar on Wednesday, January 27th from 2 - 3pm CST presented by Susan Gorveatte, president of Gorveatte Consulting, Inc.

Webinar Details
Perform successful audits with demonstrated communication and leadership skills, remain true to the purpose of the audit, look for the good, identify the opportunities for improvement and use your audit sense for the overall good of the organization.

Success in auditing relies on effective communication and being a strong team leader. Learn to be a Leader in Auditing by adhering to the principles of auditing and building strong audit relationships with your audit client, auditees, and team members. Learn how to approach people, how to build rapport, how to listen, and identify the traits of a successful auditor; these are skills that will help you perform a value added audit with findings the audit client and auditees can act upon.

Presentation Description
Being a trained auditor does not always mean you will be a successful auditor. Knowing the criteria against which you will be auditing is part of the steps to becoming an auditor. Success in auditing relies on effective communication and being a strong team leader.

Session Takeaways
In this interactive session, participants will:
  • Identify the “soft” skills of auditing that align with the principles of auditing outlined in ISO 19011:2018
  • Understand the qualities of a successful team leader within the context of conducting an audit
