After the conference is before the conference. Although this is a rather obvious statement, it is not without merit. The success of the European conference still reverberates, and fortunately this is also reflected by the financial result of IIA Switzerland.

We have established a new benchmark in Europe and subsequent institutes are contacting our team for advice on the 2018 conference in Madrid and the 2019 conference in Luxembourg. This is something to be proud of!
Nevertheless, directly after the event, it was important to go back and focus on the running of our daily business, get on with our projects, prepare a varied advanced training programme for 2018 and breathe life into the ‘coeur des Alpes: Crans-Montana Auditely’ topic with the help of our dear friends from Valais. We hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy the local hospitality, marvellous panorama and regional delicacies. Investigating subjects in the fields of brain research, white-collar crime or the relevance of gamification and ethics in the internal auditing world, we aim to give you fresh impulses for your work, help you strategically position the internal audit and provide a few answers to the questions: “Audit – quo vadis?”
Dear members, you have taken part in our survey and provided valuable input for the strategic direction of IIA Switzerland. From your feedback, I have concluded that you approve of the work performed by myself, the management board and IIA Switzerland. We are delighted about this, but are also aware that we should not rest on our laurels. Instead, we will continue to follow up on current internal audit topics and technologies. Even if e-learning or social media are not yet very relevant, you believe that these subjects will gain importance. Our future projects are picking up on this trend. We are particularly glad that you believe the representation of interests is one of the key tasks of the management board. This is what we work for before, during and after the conferences – the commitment to Good Corporate Governance knows no limits. At IIA Switzerland, we are therefore bringing governance up to date. As a first step, we have revised our bylaws to create greater clarity and legal security.
I hope you enjoyed this brief overview of our work in the last few months and look forward to the coming months and years. On this note, I would like to thank you for your support in the context of the member survey, the conferences and the amendment of the bylaws of IIA Switzerland.
