The State of Internal Audit: Insights from

Industry Experts and IA Leaders


September is our first professional development meeting.  We would like to start the year hearing from our consulting partners and other chapter members about current day topics within our profession.  The meeting will involve hearing from two of our consulting partners, Deloitte and Ernst & Young, about their firms’ study/surveying of key trends in the IA industry, and a deeper discussion on select topics.  We will also hear from other IA leaders who are members of the Detroit Chapter.

Several topics that will be covered include:

  • The evolving Internal Audit Mandate (striking the right balance between assurance and advisory activities)
  • Keeping a pulse on emerging risks (internal audits role in identifying and monitoring emerging risks, and what are some of the emerging risks companies are preparing for)
  • The changing operating model (the new ways of working to become more effective and efficient)
  • Addressing the talent gap (traditional audit skills do not go away, but need to be built upon) 
  • Agile Internal Audit
  • Data Analytics

We will also set aside a Q&A segment of the meeting for chapter members to ask questions or to share their IA organizations’ focus areas and strategies in the year ahead.  Please plan to attend and engage in this insightful session.



Jennifer Monacelli (EY), Nicole Marshall (EY), Lou Barkman (Deloitte), and Ali Rana (General Motors) will be presenting.  Other Chapter members will also be speaking.
