“The first step in solving a problem is to recognise that it does exist” – Zig Ziglar.

Every business will encounter a diverse variety of risk, some of which may have the potential to adversely affect its productivity and/or reputation. In extreme cases failure to address identified issues could cause serious damage which can be costly and time consuming to repair.

The implementation of more and more restrictive oversight and regulations are not the sole solution. Most businesses are made up of individuals committed to their purpose, employees and clients and overbearing regulation can stymie creativity and enterprise.

When things have gone wrong it is generally from bad behaviour, leadership and management rather than bad regulations or laws. Therefore, the answer to avoiding issues is simply better behaviour, management and communication.

Well Bob Pointer did it again! Delivered as always! If you ever run into one of Bob’s event, don’t miss it! Word of an internal auditor!

Another great education opportunity provided by Albanian Institute of Internal Auditors. Progress through sharing!”

Stavri Pashko CIA – Chairman and Executive Director The Albanian Institute of Internal Auditors.

Understanding and managing people and deploying appropriate systems will positively impact on the management of risk, it will also greatly increase the probability of identifying “red flags” and issues needing attention.

In a business context the manner in which responses to such identified issues are managed is critical.

We offer a range of developmental programmes which provide practical solutions  to assist the prevention,detection, quantifying and response to all levels and types of issues that may occur.

“Bob’s course on investigation was very practical, useful, informative and engaging. I especially appreciated the systematic and thorough manner in which he conducted the course and how the skills imparted by him were very transferable across industries”.
