Next Level Audit Committee Reporting
How to use data in audit committee presentations. CPE: 1.0
You've gathered lots of data from your audit processes, but now you need to use the data to tell a story to your audit committee. Designing these presentations is critical for leading audit departments. To help audit leaders successfully develop effective presentations, we will review the results of the surveys from The IIA to ensure we are meeting the expectations of the audit committee.
We will share trends, best practices, critical success factors, and tips for including the most relevant data. The presenter will then provide real world examples showing how to use data to create trending reports and data analysis for inclusion in audit committee presentations using tools you already have like Excel and PowerPoint.
After completing this presentation, you will be able to:
- Identify meaningful data sources for audit committee presentations
- Apply real world cases with real examples using simple reporting tools
- Implement best practices for using a simple guide to effectively update the audit committee
