the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA)- Fiji is always working to increase awareness of the internal audit profession.

The Institute plans to hold more such events to engage with business managers and chief executive officers (CEOs).

The Institute of Internal Auditors Conference 2018 begins today at Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa, and  ends on tomorrow.

The pre-conference at the Southern Cross Hotel, Suva yesterday, was  titled “Getting more out of IA -Transforming IA to add value and meet business expectations” was attended by about 30 Senior Executives and Internal Audit Managers.

In opening the event, the Vice President of IIA Fiji, Viresh Chandra said that yesterday’s programme is an initiative of IIA Fiji to not only spread awareness of the Internal Audit profession, but to also receive feedback from Business and Audit managers on some of the challenges they face.

“And to work together to meet those challenges through the professional institute, which can help its members “Rise to the Challenge”, the theme for the Annual Conference to be held at the Intercontinental Resort and Spa. About 150 delegates are expected to attend the conference.”

The facilitator for the event, Gurbakshish Singh, or GB as he is known, was in Fiji in March this year to deliver a four-day workshop for Internal Auditors at the Holiday Inn in Suva.

Mr Singh will also be presenting at the Annual Conference on a topic that has been identified as an ongoing challenge, “Audit Report: from reporting to supporting”.

He is a firm believer that the best way to build a company’s future is to build its people.

Mr Singh said the workshop is about putting three groups of people together, Internal Auditors, Management and Senior Management.

“This is done to look at things not working well we can fix that, things we should not be doing, we doing that and things we are doing wrong and should be stopping them,” he said.

“Things we should keep, things we should do less, things we should stop and things we should do more and new things, new ideas.

“This is the first year we are doing this. It is very important for people to come together and have a conversation on expectations from each other.

“This is done to work better produce better results save the money become a more efficient and more productive.

“At the end of the day winner is all the stakeholders, the customers are the winners, the organisation is the winners the teams are the winners the employees’ internal auditors.”
