One of the most exciting internal auditing networking events of the year, the 21st Southern African Internal Audit Conference took place at the Sandton Convention Centre between the 13th and 15th of August.
The theme of this year’s conference was ‘Adapting to new realities’. The conference was, as always, a great opportunity for experts to network, share ideas, discuss best practices and get a global perspective of the internal auditing industry.
BarnOwl were proud to sponsor at the event and it was great to touch base with many new prospective and existing clients. We have definitely seen an increase in the number of organisations looking to automate their audit processes, and also looking more and more at the integration between risk, compliance and audit. The list of speakers at the 3-day conference included the likes of Barbara Willard from ADvTECH, Jenitha John from First Rand Bank Ltd; Reginald Haman from Royal Bafokeng Platinum Ltyd; Lonette Genis from COMAIR and many more.
We also had a lucky draw to win a Geldof hamper. The lucky winner was Nonkululeko Nkosi, Internal Auditor at Mpumalanga Provincial Treasury. Congratulations.
As BarnOwl we are very proud to be associated with the Institute of Internal Audit South Africa and to have been a sponsor of such a prestigious event.
