Event Summary and Speaker Bio:
Inside the Siemens Turnaround – How to use a Grow and Develop model to drive change
In November, 2006 Siemens, AG – a $100 billion global conglomerate – was raided by the police in what would become the world’s largest ever settlement for breach of anti-corruption regulations worldwide. Internal audit, 585 strong, had failed to detect or elevate this issue before the raids. Two years later a rebuilding program began in what would become the largest ever transformation of a Global Internal Audit group.  Hear from one of the architects of that rebuilding how this was accomplished and how the lessons can be adopted for you, personally and in your group.
This Workshop combines:
·    Sharing of real-life experience through facilitated discussion with a former executive at Siemens, AG
·    Operational, not theoretical hands-on activities, using the model as it operated at Siemens.
·    Tailored coaching for all levels from Senior to Chief Audit Executive
At Siemens, the ‘Grow and Develop’ model was used to drive a complete turnaround in the quality of Internal Audit.  Whether you want to establish a new brand for your department, maximize your career opportunities or just stay at the top of your game, the Grow and Develop model can bring real and lasting results for you.
The Boston Chapter is pleased to present a hands-on, interactive learning event tailored for all levels of internal audit professional from seniors who aspire to the manager level to Chief Audit Executives planning how to market internal audit within their organization.  This workshop – the first of its kind – will:
·    Share the success stories – first hand – that lay behind the transformation of one of the world’s largest internal audit groups.
·    Explore how four simple actions applied at Siemens can work for anyone, no matter what the size of Department or level of professional.
·    Engage you in an interactive workshop where you will practice the fundamental disciplines that were used so successfully at Siemens.
·    Equip you with tools you can use for your own personal and group success.
·    Give you hands-on experience getting started with your own personal ‘Grow and Develop’ plan.
Speaker - Anthony O’Reilly
Former Head of Professional Practices, Siemens AG, Munich
As the Head of Professional Practices at Siemens, AG from 2008 to 2012 Anthony played a leadership role in the re-construction of the global audit function of Siemens AG following that organization’s 2008 settlement for breach of anti-bribery regulations, which remains the largest ever single settlement. Anthony was responsible at the operating level for rebuilding quality and therefore credibility in the audit group globally. In addition to the Audit Committee, this rebuild was an essential component of rebuilding trust with Regulators (through an SEC Monitor), the members of the Managing Board and perhaps most importantly individuals who worked in audit and whose careers were dependent upon the overall success of the group.
Prior to his role at Siemens, Anthony was a Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
