Professions thrive through advocacy and diversity of thought. The internal audit profession is no different. For the past two years, I have recognized 10 men and women who are making an impact on behalf of internal audit around the world.
I am pleased to announce the continuation of the annual recognition through my website AuditBeacon.com. Next month AuditBeacon.com will recognize 10 global internal thought leaders who have made a significant contribution to advancing the internal audit profession around the world in 2021. Individuals will be recognized for contributions through publishing, video and audio media; speaking; and advocating the value of internal auditing around the world.
