The Dutch are famous for their water management. They have succeeded in taking back land from the water and have a highly ingenious system in place to protect their country against flooding. When you visit the Netherlands, you see water flowing in rivers and canals almost everywhere.
Like the water flowing through our beautiful country and touching every single part of it, The IIA International Conference offers you a flow of information touching upon all elements of the internal audit domain. The Institute of Internal Auditors - Netherlands invites you to join the flow of the 2007 International Conference of The Institute of Internal Auditors.
THE FLOW OF PROGRESS THROUGH SHARING
The internal audit profession can be linked to water and the flow of water in many ways. Audit results flow through all departments of a company and can be clarifying or even purifying. Global professional standards demand that internal auditors work transparently and that their reports be crystal clear. Internal audit results can be used as dams to protect a company from the wild ocean of risks or as a bridge to connect aspects that are separated by turbulent waters.
