Our Featured Facilitator, in his own words...
“One of the best rewards for facilitating with the IIA is working with and getting to know auditors from a wide variety of businesses, governmental organizations, and other groups.
No matter where they audit or what concentration their audits take, auditors share many of the same challenges. Helping auditors find ways to do their jobs better and helping them to find ways to improve the receptiveness of their efforts and recommendations are great bonuses and nice things to see and feel as a facilitator.”
