The Internal Audit Breakfast Club series is hosted by the TCIIA’s Young Professionals Group and are specific to internal auditors in the mid-to-early stages of their career. They provide an environment to expand one’s professional network, as well as to learn about hot topics across the internal audit profession.

This HealthPartners - hosted Breakfast Club will be the first Internal Audit Breakfast Club of the TCIIA’s fiscal year. In addition to a light breakfast, a panel of seasoned internal auditors from a variety of industries will be sharing their insight into what makes an effective internal auditor. We are expecting to have panelists from the following industries present: 
  • Consumer Products
  • Education
  • Industrial Manufacturing
  • Public Accounting

In this session, Subject Matter Resources from EY will discuss strategies, risk and control considerations related to eDiscovery and eRetention. This is an area not often considered by internal audit but can pose problems for organizations that don’t manage these risks well. Information learned during this session will give participants the background to begin conversations within your organization on these topics, or give you insights on how to approach an internal audit of these activities. Additionally, there will be a panel of audit peers to discuss best practices, tools and techniques and levels of program maturity.

The sessions objectives are to:
  • Gain insights into how to effectively manage electronic information
  • Identify and mitigate legal, regulatory and contractual risks.

Do you find yourself doing audits where really important things go unsaid? Where collaboration gets blocked? Come and acquire the tools for a new approach:
  • The current brain science that explains why people overreact to situations and do not speak up
  • Improve communication with co-workers and management during tough moments
  • Better collaboration with difficult personalities or unmotivated teammates
  • The best things to do for yourself and others when things get intense
  • How to have effective communication across differences of gender and race
