Hong Kong has experienced unprecedented disruption and challenges over the past few years. Being one of the international financial centres of the world, businesses in Hong Kong are unavoidably heavily impacted by the global geopolitical and economical risks. The business and risk landscape has shifted. Digital acceleration. Operational transformation. Lightning speed of technological innovation. The rising importance of climate change and higher expectation from stakeholders. There are all sorts of challenges that require organisations to respond with greater speed and agility.
How can internal auditors stay relevant, add value and gain stakeholder trust? Internal auditors have to evolve, learn new skills, new capabilities and continuously equipped with the right knowledge.
