We are pleased to be offering this event at two locations. Our speaker will be presenting live at the Wellshire Event Center in Denver and we will be live streaming the session at the Foxhill Club in Longmont. You will have an opportunity to select your preferred location when you register.  

At this breakfast meeting attendees will learn tips and tricks from two highly experienced Internal Audit Professionals. Two topics will be covered: Demystifying ERM and Embedding Internal Audit Into System Implementation Teams.

Enterprise Risk Management has been made unnecessarily complex. Anyone remember the three dimensional COSO cube? Einstein said “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”. This presentation will simplify ERM to make it easily explainable to non-audit employees of your organization.  

As the business environment changes and process integration increases, internal auditors continue to be sought after as experts in controls and process improvement. Being involved in system implementations up front and embedding internal audit into the entire process adds overall efficiency and effectiveness. Learn simple and easy tips and tricks on how to get involved and be seen as effective in system implementations.

 Event Description 
Get ready... earn 12 of your most valuable CPEs (MVCPEs perhaps?!) and show your organization your Internal Audit function is NOT going to do the same ol' thing in 2019.

Spend 50 minutes with me, 1 day of each month, and learn how a Total Quality Management (TQM) mindset can help Internal Audit add REAL value. And I’m not talking the same “add value” you have been trying to do for years. I am talking about REAL, TOTAL QUALITY value.

So WHAT is Total Quality Auditing?

Let me tell you.

TQA has 6 points of focus that start with the foundational aspects of organizational culture – Ethics and Standards of Conduct– and how Internal Audit can not only say they are “auditing culture” – but how they can lead the charge in shifting the culture at your organization. The points of focus continue by describing more effective ways of listening to and utilizing Customer Feedback (yes, you have customers too) and how to apply that feedback using truly Lean Techniques. And lastly, you will learn by Balancing Risk, Audit, and Consulting activities and by doing all of the above with unprecedented Leadership and Grit, you will earn more respect than you ever thought imaginable within your organization.

TQA, much like TQM, focuses on listening to customer needs, anticipating future problems and risks, and providing new quality approaches, process improvements, and strategic enhancements. We need to STOP managing our Internal Audit functions by fixing YESTERDAY’s problems. We need to show your leaders, your CFOs, and your CEOs, you are there to transform the future.

Be Proactive, not Reactive. This is the TQA Proposition.

So WHO am I?

Let me tell you.

I am an unconventional Internal Auditor with 15 years of progressive audit, accounting, and teaching experience. I am an active Internal Audit Consultant by day, and a CPE Trainer by day and night. I am also an Accounting Professor at both a Community College and a State University in Denver, CO. You are welcome to read more about me at:

Simply go to and click REGISTER for the full 12-part series. Use the code "IIADENVER" and get a 10% discount. The IIA Denver Chapter will also receive a 10% donation for every participant who uses the code, so your registration supports the chapter!

It’s the best $120 investment your Internal Audit function will make in 2019! OR read more about each month's webinar and choose an individual webinar for only $20.

Have 10 or more people ready to register? Contact me directly for a discount!

I can't wait to spend the 3rd Thursday of every month (from 9:05-9:55am MST) with you - having some REAL fun, learning how you can add REAL, TOTAL QUALITY value, and focus your Internal Audit function on the FUTURE in 2019!

Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions – And Happy New Year!
