Event description

Description

Too many organisations perceive audits as a box-ticking exercise.

But with changes to ISO 19011:2018, external pressures and a fundamental business need, you cannot afford to overlook such a crucial opportunity.

As an auditor, you are the conscience of the organisation. You need to deal with shades of grey, navigate complex company cultures and office politics. And you need to demonstrate value through improvement initiatives.

This isn’t easy.
Even experienced auditors struggle to identify new risks and opportunities, challenge leadership and enforce the changes required.

So where can you get inspiration, techniques and advice to advance your auditing skills?

CQI Yorkshire are hosting an event for quality professionals to learn, share and network. The one-day only agenda is packed with expert presentations, breakout discussions and interactive workshops.

Your key takeaways:

  • ISO 19011:2018 internal auditing skills and techniques training materials
  • Example leadership governance audit
  • Opportunity to network with peers, ask questions and join a group discussion
