On the agenda are workshops on audit report writing and CIA examination preparation using the IIA's CIA Learning System. There will also be discussions on how to build a world-class audit team, sustain audit excellence and navigate the changing expectations of auditors. Some of the key speakers include Richard Chambers, President and CEO of the IIA, Alan Siegfried Auditor General at the Inter-American Development Bank and Rod Winters, CIA at Microsoft.
