Communicating the Audit Results

Mastering Effective Communication of Audit Results


The ability to effectively communicate with all stakeholders is essential for internal auditors. A significant portion of an auditrs's time is dedicated to conducting internal audits and conveying the outcomes.


Efficient and effective communication of audit results plays a crucial role in fostering a constructive relationship between management, external auditors, regulators  and the internal audit function. It expedites the resolution of observations and recommendations while enhancing the overall efficiency of the internal audit department. For management, audit reports serve as a window into daily operations, enabling them to evaluate performance, obtain objective information about controls and operations, and secure support from upper management to address critical issues. Internal auditors benefit from reports as well, as they facilitate follow-up activities, provide training opportunities for audit staff, summarize audit findings, and contribute to performance evaluations.


To ensure stakeholders comprehend the issues at hand, understand associated risks, and grasp the impacts on operations, effective audit reporting practices must be implemented. This seminar, tailored for internal auditors and other professionals seeking to enhance their internal audit reports, presents timely insights and practical solutions. By adopting simple best practices, attendees will learn how to improve the clarity and impact of their communication.


Participation in this seminar grants each attendee 2 CPE Hours in auditing (YB). A certificate of completion will be awarded, validating the professional development achieved.
