Richard F. Chambers’ journey on the audit trail spans nearly 40 years with stops in both government and the corporate sector and, since 2009, as President and CEO of The Institute of Internal Auditors. In Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail, his first book release, Chambers shares many of the key events and insights gained during his impressive career, as well as valuable lessons he learned along the way.
Chambers, CIA, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA, recounts the motivating factors that led him into internal auditing, major milestones along his career path, and pivotal experiences that helped shape him personally and professionally.
“I have learned a number of important lessons in my career — some early on, some much later,” Chambers says. “The paradox of what you pick up later in life is you have less time to apply those lessons. But if I can help just one internal auditor become better prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in this profession, then my efforts writing this book will be well worth it.”
Compelling features of the book include:
Stories from specific phases of Chambers’ life and as an internal auditor.
Career-defining decisions and the motivation and influences behind them.
Ultimate “life lessons” learned in real time and upon reflection.
Chambers’ career is unique in so many ways — across government and private and not-for-profit sectors — that there are sure to be key takeaways for new and seasoned practitioners alike. “Whether it’s in internal auditing or life in general,” Chambers writes,“we all aspire to make this world a better place, even if only in small ways.”
