On this occasion we will be welcoming the following speakers:
Active Audit Leadership Programme (AALP)
- Jeremy Eagles – Chief Audit Officer, Group Internal Audit at Bupa
- Darren Pearce – Head of Operations, Group Internal Audit at Bupa
- Joe Gilmartin – Manager – Bearing Point
How do you really go from good to great? This was the key question posed at the very start of Bupa’s Active Audit Leadership programme. “We need to build on what we do now, but enable and empower our teams to do it better, faster and more efficiently”. (Jeremy Eagles Chief - Audit Officer)
Bupa Group Internal Audit’s AALP was initiated in direct response to the GIA purpose and strategy - a clear need existed for sustainable improvement in auditor productivity, experience, and quality, through investment in leadership and auditor capability. The programme sought to establish a collaborative and performance-enabling culture within GIA, increasing productivity and ultimately the delivery of our work more efficiently and effectively. Working with Bearing Point the Programme sought to positively impact front line auditors to deliver sustainable improvements. It was a partnership programme in the truest sense and the improvements in efficiency and effectiveness have been tangible, significant and ultimately sustainable.
Data Analytics: Building capability and adding value in smaller audit teams
- Duncan Richmond - Head of Internal Audit Analytics, Bank of England
It is widely recognised that data analytics are a valuable addition to the modern internal audit toolbox. However, building and integrating data analytics capabilities into an established audit approach can be challenging, particularly for smaller audit teams.
In this session, Duncan will give a practitioner’s perspective on the opportunities afforded by analytics and – despite the challenges – how even small audit teams can build and leverage them effectively. He will consider both the technical side of capability development (including resourcing and skills, operating models, tools, and techniques) and the broader cultural changes needed to integrate analytics into the audit approach.
Embedding an approach to Cyber risk management: One CISO’s story!
- Janine Klaiber, Group Chief Information Security Officer across the Ardonagh Group
Janine will share her story of being Ardonagh’s first ever CISO, tasked with leading and embedding an effective framework, and cyber risk and control management practices and understanding across an already successful and rapidly growing organisation. Her talk will explore the various considerations for information security and cyber risk, designing and embedding a fit-for-purpose security governance framework and a management system that works in a complex organisation, developing a new CISO function and capabilities to support it all - and the challenges faced and overcome along the way.
The Seminar will begin with registration and refreshments at 9.30am, will include a mid morning coffee break and finish with a sandwich/ buffet lunch at 1pm. The cost per head to attend is £75
