We often talk about integrity, objectivity, confidentiality and competence as key attributes of any internal audit professional. We should add courage into the mix as well as it links neatly with these other ethical elements.

But being a courageous internal auditor is not always as easy as we would like. It can be easy to say, but hard in practice. In this focused session John will explain why courage is so critical for every internal auditor and he will illustrate his talk with examples drawn from his extensive work in the UK and overseas.
