What Private Sector and Public Sector Internal Auditors can Learn from Each Other
I have chosen the MUSH topic, as I think that the public sector auditors will be very keen to learn some best practices from the private sector. I believe the title of the presentation will attract open minded private sector CAE’s to learn from the public sector. The content of the presentation “What Private Sector and Public Sector Internal Auditors can Learn from Each Other” directly addresses MUSH topic/stream. I did consider the IA innovation stream, however many of the lessons learned that I will cover are not necessarily innovative in themselves–although incorporating them in public sector and private sector audits would certainly be innovative.
As a frequent speaker on topics of interest to internal auditors I am confident I will be able to bring this topic to life for the participants and they will walk away with practical advice allowing them to improve the value they deliver to their stakeholders. I have been doing soundings on this topic with both my public sector and private clients and they have been unanimously surprised that they have something to offer the other sector. I think this is compounded by the fact it is unusual for CAE’s to move between public sector and private sector.
