Baker Tilly Webinar Series

  Adventures in Small Shop Auditing                                  Register for this event                       

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

1:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET

In a small audit shop, deciding where to focus your time and effort can often be challenging as you balance resources with the risks that the institution faces. Developing technical expertise in areas that are new to you and your department with a limited budget can be an additional challenge. We understand the challenges that small audit shops can face and hope that the format of this webinar is helpful in providing insight into some of our industry's most relevant topics.

Rather than select the topics that we think are most relevant to the participants, this webinar session will be a “choose your own adventure” format where the participants vote on the topics they want to listen to throughout the presentation. There will be five topic areas provided as options to choose from during the presentation. Each topic will be presented in distinct vignettes and may be covered as time allows. Our presenters will discuss common risk areas, tools and techniques that can be applied to organizations with limited resources, but are also helpful for auditors with general interest in the subject matter. The five topic areas include:

• Enterprise risk management
• Information technology
• Sponsored research
