A great excitement to organize year by year the Audit Masters conference. This time the 7th Annual Internal Audit Forum will take place in the lively Barcelona. As usual the attendees will be presented with a number of sessions on today’s current issues and trends. Our expert speakers will provide an insight into their experiences throughout interesting keynote presentations, and the Q&A and networking sessions will give the opportunity for knowledge-sharing.

Audit Masters 2019 is a great platform to discuss common challenges. We are convinced that the conference is going to give a great value to the attendees this time as well.

We look forward to seeing you in Barcelona.

On behalf of GLC,
Aletta Lemak
