A Message from the President and CEO April 2018

Today we are hosting our second webinar in “The Future of Auditing” series. This event will be a live presentation by Elmer Corbin, a senior executive from IBM and Chair of ASQ. Corbin will deliver an informative presentation discussing how artificial intelligence is transforming the auditing profession. The webinar will start at April 5 at 4:00 p.m. EDT. (8:00 p.m. GMT). Click here for more information or to register. If you miss the presentation, the webinar will be available to view “on demand” on Exemplar Global’s webinar platform.

In early May (7 – 18), we are holding our second virtual auditor conference—the International Auditor Symposium 2018. The International Auditor Symposium will run 24 hours a day during the two-week conference period. You can access as much of the symposium as you want, any time of the day, anywhere in the world. There will be no limit on access to our world-class presentations of global thought leaders and information on international standards and auditing techniques. We have some wonderful speakers and presenters so I encourage you to register here.

For some time now, I have been talking about some new initiatives from Exemplar Global. One of these, the Work Style Assessment, has been in place for several months and we are starting to see some of the early results from this work. Each participant that takes the assessment receives their own personal report and another that they can provide their employer. While these reports provide an insight for personal self-awareness, this is only part of the story. The reports also allows us to show how an individual compares with peers and how the wider population of auditors perform. The possibilities are very wide ranging. Below is one example of a report format that can be produced.

We expect much more refinement of data coming out as we build the data set. If you wish to participate and complete your own auditor Work Style Assessment, click here.

You can expect Exemplar Global to become much more active with data management over the coming months. We look forward to sharing the results and discussions that arise from the data with you.

As always, we will welcome your feedback on any matters concerning Exemplar Global.
