One of the most exciting internal auditing networking events of the year, the 22nd Southern African Internal Audit Conference took place at the Sandton Convention Centre between the 12th and 14th of August.
The theme of this year’s conference was ‘Deconstruct. Rewire. Reconstruct’. 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 Mkhuleko Hlengwa, Chairperson: SCOPA; Everhard Carstens, Director: Prozilog Pty Ltd; Bruce Msimanga, President: DLA and many more.
We also had a lucky draw to win a Geldof hamper. The lucky winner was Patience from Department of Social Development. 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.
