Auditing beyond boundaries:
Kiss traditional approaches goodbye
I share The Organizational Personality Framework and Personality-based Internal Auditing PBA® in keynote speaking engagements. My current geographical focus is Europe, but depending on the conference and/or group, you could tempt me to get on a long-haul plane (once we are in the past-Corona phase ...).
My speeches provide unique guidance on how winning organizations in the next decade will (should ...) tick, and how world-class internal audit functions will provide them with future-oriented insights of high strategic relevance.
As internal audit is part of a bigger ecosystem, I am also sharing insights about the frenzy of the fourth industrial revolution, characterized by disruptive technologies, a new kind of value creation, and change at an exponential pace - and about the role of the third line of defence going forward.
My main interest and focus is in general the meta-level, i.e. providing the logic behind the information. The key question I am passionate about is:
"What exactly is happening - beyond the visible signs?"
We live in exciting times.
