Tracie’s clear and structured approach, combined with her enthusiasm for Internal Audit matters, has created great value for our international and diverse audit team. Tracie has helped us make our audit reports significantly more valuable to the organization despite an already high level of skill in the team. As a result of these positive experiences, we extended our cooperation with Tracie to include effective communication for internal auditors and presenting audit results to the Board. If you want to raise your results to a higher level, Tracie is the right expert!

Before Tracie created a customized workshop specifically for my team, we were struggling to achieve our KPI. Now, my team consistently achieves our internal report writing KPI, and my investment in review and editing time has decreased significantly.

Tracie’s expertise has enabled our audit team to streamline our audit reports, describe risks more precisely, and write at a consistently higher quality level across the team. Our findings, risk and recommendations have become more focused and more value added to the business. My team is writing at a consistently higher level, and very important for me personally, the time it takes me to review a draft report has been cut by over 50%. That means I can focus on more important issues every day.

If you require a very well-organised, diligent and creative person to help your business, then look no further than Tracie. She is an excellent coach with first-class teaching skills who can help you to maximise your business’ potential to the full. She is patient and takes her time to explain concepts very clearly and understandably. I have no hesitation in recommending Tracie to any business.

Our in-house workshop with Tracie helped us add structure and clarity to our audit reports. Using criteria, condition, cause and risk allows us to clearly show our stakeholders the issues we identified and the impact to the business. Our recommendations now use consistent language that is actionable and measurable, which will make follow-up easier. The workshop was also an excellent opportunity to bring the team together, share ideas and have some fun at the same time.

“Think before you ink” – that was one of the key messages I received during a great training session for advanced audit report writing with Tracie. After the training, my attitude to writing an audit report changed significantly. Tracie is able to change your way of your thinking before you actually start typing the first lines. How to make the arguments more compelling, how to introduce a subject in the right way, how to apply a consistent style of writing… From now on, readers of my reports are able to understand my points from the beginning. This results in a very clear picture of the described issues in the audit report.

- When I designed my Negotiation Skills for Auditors workshop six years ago, I contacted Heads of Audit (HoA) in my network to ask the question: Does Internal Audit negotiate? Answers ranged from “of course we do” to “no way in hell do we negotiate!”. That HoA was almost angry with me for asking the question. […]Keep Reading...
