In today's episode we meet again with Hal Garyn to discuss how to develop professional relationships to help further your career.

Flashback Friday: Making Internal Audit Practical with Toby DeRoche

February 12, 2021

Most of the advice and knowledge people present about #internalaudit is very theoretical. If you are like most auditors you are still asking "But how do I implement at my organization?"

In this #jammingwithjason #internalaudit podcast "Making Internal Audit Practical" I talk with Toby DeRoch of InsightCPE on how we can become much more practical and just do things instead of talking about it. Two areas we dig into deeper are how to practically apply an Agile Auditing approach, and how to deal with a virtual audit environment, including how to develop relationships remotely.
