Last week Ideagen’s Banking, Finance and Audit team went to London to attend the Chartered IIA’s Internal Audit 2016 conference.

The event, which took place in Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Centre in Westminster, London, brought together delegates and speakers from a broad range of industries and sectors. Delegates enjoyed presentations from keynote speakers, including Ed Balls, Nicola Horlick, Philippa Foster Back and James Turner, who contributed fascinating insights on risk, leadership and governance.

The event started with an introduction from Dr Ian Peter (top left), MBE and CEO at Chartered IIA, whose presentation highlighted new potential risks that the Brexit aftermath would bring, highlighting how imperative it is for internal auditors to follow the IIA guidelines and implement robust processes in order to keep these risks at bay.

Additionally, former shadow chancellor, Ed Balls, raised the issue of the importance of culture which needs to be led from the inside to empower internal audit within an organisation.

In addition to keynote presentations, attendees participated in seminars based around risk, digital and cyber, leadership and financial services.

Throughout the event Ideagen’s exhibition stand was also popular with delegates wanting to learn more about risk and audit automation solutions. Moreover, visitors to our stand had the chance to explore the latest Pentana client success stories, including BT who also collected their “Outstanding team – Private Sector” Audit and Risk Award during the conference.

Thank you to all delegates who visited our stand during the Internal Audit 2016 event and we look forward to connecting with you again in the future!
