Customized Training Programs for Your International Audit Team
Proven Strategies, Techniques and Tools that Empower, Inspire and Drive Change
QAC’s Training Programs are designed specifically for international internal auditors. Every workshop takes into account Audit’s stakeholders, Moments of Truth in the audit process, and IIA guidelines where applicable. Empower your team with new knowledge and skills, and in return, achieve better audit results than ever before. Whether your team is local or spread around the globe, communicating effectively across borders is critical.
Audit reports that bring positive change to your organization
Writing an effective audit report means communicating key messages to your audit stakeholders, clearly, concisely and persuasively. It means writing recommendations that will be agreed, accepted, and acted upon. You will learn the same proven techniques and strategies that hundreds of auditors from Europe to America to South Africa have learned and put in place immediately following the workshop.
Achieving cooperation and resolving conflict in the Audit Process
In today’s complex international business environment, you have to successfully overcome two major communication challenges: Maximize cooperation AND navigate between your position and the position of your audit clients on audit findings and recommendations. This workshop looks at improving negotiation skills, persuading audit clients, and building relationships entirely from an audit point of view.
Transform your communication skills to impact, influence and inspire
Your role as an international internal auditor is a demanding one. Technical skills are a must, but communication skills are even more important. From IIA publications to LinkedIn discussion threads, everyone recognizes that auditors need to be effective communicators. Now is the time to learn to persuade stakeholders and be aware of the impact of culture, language and behaviour on your every communication.
Conduct effective interviews that drive better audit results
To achieve a successful audit outcome and get the results you want, you have to combine behaviour, body language, and cultural insights with effective questioning, listening and facilitation techniques. Why? Because conducting effective audit interviews is one of the most valuable methods you have to add value and bring about positive change to your organization.
Transform your presentation and inspire your audience to action
To create a successful presentation today, you need an effective story line, compelling content, and a deep understanding of what motivates your audience. It means taking your audience on a journey that enables them to see, feel and believe in the value of the change to come. From today’s status quo to tomorrow’s possibilities: It is time to create positive change in your organization.
Maximize your effectiveness when auditing across cultures
Today’s internal auditors work around the world, interviewing, negotiating, and writing audit reports for multiple international stakeholders. Communicating across cultures brings new challenges that require you to be more aware of language, culture and behaviour than ever before. Because when you get it wrong, you can affect the outcome of the audit and create positive change in your organization.
