In this week's episode I speak with Imran Zia about lessons he learned from being a CAE. We discuss how management wants to see internal audit as a partner and trusted advisor. How integrity, courage, likability and trust help you get to that status. We also discuss how to become the CEO of your own career development and that by spending time learning you business and industry is one of the biggest things you can do to earn the trust of management. Imran Zia is the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) for the Government of British Columbia in Canada.
