Adding More Value and Becoming a Trusted Advisor by Bucking Tradition

Field: Auditing | Delivery Method: Self Study | CPE Hours: 1.0

Internal audit has established some great traditions over the years. As Tevye, the character from Fiddler on the Roof said: "Traditions, traditions. Without our traditions our lives would be as shaky as... as a fiddler on the roof!" Later; however, Tevye realizes, "our old ways were once new, weren't they?" We have to be willing to change with the times and create new internal audit traditions that provide more value to our organizations than the old ones.

Jason Mefford is joined by Dan Clark, for a discussion on bucking tradition, establishing your own personal brand, becoming a better auditor, and making internal audit a career. You'll also learn how to become a trusted advisor and provide insight and foresight.

Dan Clark is the GOAT of Internal Audit (you'll have to listen to learn what that means) and CAE of Washington Trust Bank. In a career that spans more than 30 years, Dan has accumulated a lot of wisdom that he shares in his book: Dare to Be Different - An Auditor's Personal Guide To Excellence. Currently, he is working on new book: The Tao of Internal Audit.
